A fully immersive digital event, staged and filmed live from ACC Liverpool with selected guests and speakers, streaming three channels of content simultaneously throughout the day: Centre Stage, Good Thinking and Open Source. Core festival sessions will include:

  • WTF Just Happened – focusing on the Covid-19 response globally

Caroline Lucas, Green Party, Douglas Lamont, Innocent; Ann Cairns, Mastercard; Nishma Robb, Google and a string of young activists including Camden Youth MP, Athian Akec.

Andrew Rae, Managing Director of the IPM explains ‘The Good Business Festival represents so much that is great about our industry. The resilience of the market, the ability to adapt and pivot at the shortest of notice and the sheer ingenuity to, essentially reinvent the manner in which events like this take place. You can see from the breadth of talent signed up that the desire to be part of something as genuinely engaging as The Good Business Festival is tangible and we at the IPM are glad to be supporting it.”

This is just the beginning of The Good Business Festival journey, as we regroup after Act 1 and build towards Act 2, a multi-day, full city region takeover in March 2021.

As we enter the final stretch of our preparations, we want to let everyone know that registration is now open (from Wednesday 9th) and this is only the beginning of The Good Business Festival movement.
