Manchester for Runways UK

Is the consultation on south east airports expansion relevant to the regions?

What role can regional airports play in improving the UK's connectivity?

These and other questions are likely to be answered when RunwaysUK brings it successful debating programme focusing on the work of the Airports Commission to Manchester.

The line-up of speakers is impressive.  More are expected to be added.

  • Sir Howard Davies, Chairman, Airports Commission
  • Sir Richard Leese, Leader, Manchester City Council; Chair, Core Cities Cabinet
  • Charlie Cornish, Group Chief Executive, Manchester Airports Group
  • David Laws, CEO, Newcastle International Airport
  • Andrew Lobbenberg, Head of European Transport Team, HSBC

The event takes place during the Commission's national consultation and so there will be plenty of opportunity to state your views and ask questions. Sir Howard will talk about the consultation process and encourage responses; Sir Richard will present a collation of stakeholder views and concerns from across the UK.

Date: Tuesday 2 December.
Time: 14:00-18:00, with registration and refreshments available from 13:15.
Venue: Concorde Conference Centre, Runway Visitor Park, hosted by Manchester Airports Group.
