Conway, Inc., will organize the 15th annual World Forum for Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in Liverpool, United Kingdom, to take place June 11-13, 2018, as the kick-off for the acclaimed International Business Festival (IBF) taking place in the same world-class city June 12-28, 2018.

The World Forum for FDI brings together corporate leaders, government representatives, business advisors and economic development agencies to discuss the future of the global economy and cross-border investment.

“We’re thrilled to return the World Forum for FDI to the UK for the 15th anniversary!” said Adam Jones-Kelley, President of Conway, Inc. “We selected Liverpool because the opportunity to kick off the International Business Festival allows us to marry the world’s premier FDI event with the world’s largest business festival, connecting our delegates from around the globe with the 40,000 business leaders attending the IBF. It’s an unprecedented opportunity, and we’re delighted to work with the IBF to deliver this historic event.”

Conference sessions include: “The Next 25 Years: Technology, Water & Climate Change,” which will explore how the world will balance industrial growth with sustainable development, and “Cybersecurity – Opportunities and Obstacles,” where participants will discuss the increasing importance of protecting intellectual property and data, and how governments and businesses are addressing this pressing issue. Delegates also will participate in exclusive high-end networking events and sector tours which will allow them to engage with the leaders from around the world who are driving the global economy.

There will also be an FDI Training Seminar prior to the main conference on June 11th. Economic development and investment promotion professionals new to the industry or looking to hone their business development and marketing skills are encouraged to attend.
