Sheffield – A Heart of Steel or Technology?

Millennium Gallery, 48 Arundel Gate, Sheffield, S1 2PP | 04.12.19

17:30 Reception | 18:30 Debate | 19:30 Networking | 21:00 Close

Sheffield is known for its industrial mastery and highly skilled workforce. Backed by international investments and the Northern Powerhouse, Sheffield is reaching out to assert itself as the city at the forefront of manufacturing and digital technology.

With forecasts indicating employment in Sheffield’s digital domain will continue to rise, the city is looking to offer residents a wider variety of contemporary social and leisure spaces. With several planned redevelopment schemes underway, improvements to transport firmly on the agenda, and excellent research universities, Sheffield has bold plans to lead the globe into the next industrial revolution.

There has never been a better time to invest in Sheffield; with major investors moving in, real estate investment at an all-time high and with more than two million people within an hour’s commute of the city, Sheffield is building its own bright future.

But with rapid growth, challenges will occur; how does the city plan to combat the rising housing issue? Will the city's information technology (IT) infrastructure support its ambition? And what’s on the agenda for ensuring Sheffield is a destination?

Find out the answers to these questions and more at Question Time Sheffield.
