#CWRocks Learning Lab: City of Culture 2021


Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce


Ricoh Arena
Judds Lane, Coventry CV6 6GE
United Kingdom

We did it! Coventry named as UK City of Culture 2021 but what are the opportunities for business?

Coventry has been successfully crowned as the UK City of Culture 2021. Now the real work begins… and it creates a unique opportunity for business in Coventry and wider Warwickshire region. Hull is anticipated to see an economic impact of £1bn as City of Culture in 2017, and the prospects for our region are even bigger. So how can businesses support this ambitious project?

#CWROCKS will welcome a triumphant David Burbidge, Chair of the City of Culture Trust, to our Learning Lab to bring businesses up to date on progress since the announcement and answer your burning questions:

  • Who are the major players and funders?
  • What are the plans for developing facilities?
  • What are the plans to involve local companies?
  • What investments will there be in infrastructure and services?
  • What are the plans to use the City of Culture as a way to promote the city as an investment and relocation centre?
  • What will be the City of Culture 2021’s legacy?

Cancellation Policy:

  • If you are unable to attend this Learning Lab session, please cancel your place at least 24 hours prior as we have limited spaces available. To cancel your place, please email events@cw-chamber.co.uk


  • David Burbidge CBE, DL: Chairman of the Coventry city of Culture Trust
