Jaguar Land Rover to support International Festival for Business

Jaguar Land Rover have announced their position as an official supporter for this year’s International Festival for Business.

Held in Liverpool throughout June and July, the festival, which is largest of its kind in the UK, will consist of more than 250 events taking place throughout the city area.

It will play host to a wide variety of conferences and keynote speeches, networking opportunities and events aimed at promoting British business and its place in the world economy.

British Business Embassy

Jaguar Land Rover are due to participate in a number of events, starting with the British Business Embassy and IFB Opening Ceremony on the 9th June, as well as a series of high-profile activities.

The Merseyside area is also home to Jaguar Land Rover’s Halewood manufacturing facility, where the successful Land Rover Freelander 2  and Range Rover Evoque are built.

Just last week, Halewood’s plant director praised the workforce there as a credit to the UK, giving the perfect platform for the company to conduct their events at the International Business Festival.

Mike Wright, Executive Director of Jaguar Land Rover said: “It is only right that Jaguar Land Rover should be participating in the Festival. The company is firmly established both as a champion of British design and engineering excellence but also as one of the UK’s international success stories. That the Festival takes place in Liverpool and the city region is also highly relevant to us, given the key role that the Halewood manufacturing plant plays both within our business as well as on the global automotive stage”.
