Accelerate business growth at the heart of Motorsport Valley® - BOOK HERE

In the current climate of unprecedented global change, the UK’s dynamic, world-leading Motorsport Valley® and High Performance Engineering business clusters continue to succeed based on a long-established foundation of race-bred innovation, rapid response and disruptive thinking. Against this background, the MIA, together with key government and commercial partners, will deliver the annual ‘Business Growth Conference’ on the day before the British Grand Prix weekend begins.

With world attention focused on Silverstone during the build-up to Formula One’s leading race, and over 250 international business leaders spanning motorsport, automotive, defence, aerospace, government and beyond expected to attend, July’s prominent b2b conference will explore emerging challenges and opportunities for motorsport’s cutting-edge capability, while prominently positioning key Motorsport Valley® suppliers, supporters and customers at the very heart of the action. 

The varied and interactive agenda will allow attendees to learn from the experience of our world-class speakers, panelists and each other, while openly discussing and debating how best to drive growth and exploit innovation both in and outside of motorsport. Careful balance between on-stage proceedings and refreshment breaks will unlock plenty of free time for attendees to view superb examples of cutting-edge innovation and grow international networks across a multitude of sectors.

  • Benefiting from changing global trade: Exploiting emerging business opportunities presented by significant changes in global trade - i.e. both established and emerging markets with the greatest untapped growth potential
