Shaun Hinds, CEO of Manchester Central was representing the events sector, and said:  โ€œBringing regional businesses together is critical if the region is going to thrive off the back of a tough two years. While weโ€™ve each needed to overcome individual business challenges, there was a consensus in the room that weโ€™re on a stable path back to sustained recovery. Iโ€™m incredibly excited for the future of this region and look forward to seeing what we as leaders can help to drive forward together.โ€
