Have your say

A SEMINAR examining the state of the real estate, commercial property and construction market in the North West is to take place later this month.

Entitled Frameworks for Recovery, it will be a question time style investigation of the improving prospects for the market in the region.

It is being put together and hosted by PKF accountants, Hill Dickinson, The Co-operative Banking Group and GVA.

After five successful years of running the event in Yorkshire, PKF has decided to introduce the seminar west of the Pennines.

Alongside representatives from each host organisation plus a guest speaker from the Greater Manchester Property Venture Fund, this session will aim to provide “a comprehensive look at the market from the collapse of property values to the current situation and opportunities for the future.”

Paul Clarke, Partner at PKF explained: “We are pleased to be putting this seminar to the real estate sector in the North West.

“It demonstrates our commitment to the property and construction industry and whilst the sector has plainly experienced some difficulties over the past few years, this session will hopefully provide an opportunity for us to discuss the positives out there that perhaps aren’t widely known.

“The ‘Frameworks for Recovery’ seminar will review the factors leading up to the collapse of property values as well as activity over the past 5 years but our primary focus is the future, and the possibilities available.

“Whilst we are undoubtedly a long way off a complete revival of the sector, the outlook is no longer so gloomy and we are seeing more opportunities to buy, build and develop.

“All the speakers are technical specialists in the sector and can provide valuable insight and advice to attendees. Whilst six years old in Yorkshire, this is our first year of running the seminar in the North West but the response has been fantastic – we’re expecting a really good session.”

The seminar will be held at Haydock Park Racecourse in Newton-le-Willows on Tuesday, November 27.

Registration and breakfast start at 8.00am with the presentation concluding at 11.00am.
