Stevenage - A Catalyst for Change

The Event

Stevenage the UK’s first New Town has now been in existence for 78 years and is currently undergoing a major Regeneration supported by a Towns Fund achieved by the Stevenage Development Board for the Town. This government investment recognises the need to make Stevenage Even Better, and the huge steps being made in the Pharmaceuticals and Life Science industries, the Advanced Manufacturing Industries and Space and Communications within the Town.

Developments in Skills, Employment opportunities and Infrastructure converge to “level up” the opportunities locally for our residents and businesses and this event celebrates the achievements made to date and what is planned in the future.
