Pegasus Group is delighted to be sponsoring the Leeds City Region at MIPIM for a third year in a row.

Leeds City Region is a location with great ambition and growth strategy, having access to a highly skilled workforce of 3 million people and 7 million people within 1 hour’s drive. The region is home to the UK’s leading professional services hubs outside of London.

In late 2019, whilst working in collaboration with SCP, Pegasus Group was delighted to have obtained planning consent for the Clifton Enterprise Zone in Calderdale. Clifton Enterprise Zone is a major regeneration initiative that aims to create significant new business and employment opportunities to Calderdale. This is a significant step for the region and the development of its 10 current Enterprise Zones along the M62 corridor.

Chris Calvert - Executive Director (Pegasus Group Leeds office)Executive Director Chris Calvert, from our Leeds office, will be networking MIPIM and will be contactable at the Leeds City Region stand.

Chris said: “MIPIM represents an excellent opportunity to reinforce and create new business relationships and to take in a wider view of what is happening in our region and beyond. Leeds City Region has much to promote, it remains one of the UK’s leading locations for foreign direct investment notably for manufacturing and tech related industries. The arrival of Channel 4 is a notable success and is representative of what the region can achieve working together and share in the confidence it provides.  I am looking forward to being part of that for another successful MIPIM event.”

The key themes of the Leeds City Region Innovation Initiative include place, talent, tech and transport.
