International Festival for Business 2016
For three weeks from 13 June 2016, Liverpool played host to the biggest international business festival in the world, the International Festival for Business or IFB2016. In 2014, the Isle of Man had great success at the inaugural event and this year we strengthened our position as an International Business Centre with new opportunities for partnership working with Liverpool and further afield in key sectors including Manufacturing, Renewable Energy, Financial and Professional Services and eBusiness.
The Islands event series welcomed over 500 attendees with support from Wentworth Hall Consulting, HSBC Bank, SPARK Impact, Syndicate Room, Bridge, Bruce Anchor, V.Ships, PDMS and local industry. The Department launched EDS and Crowdfunding regulations that’ll allow crowdfunding platforms to establish their business on the Isle of Man at the Festival.
