The city of Wolverhampton is going through major change and securing investments not seen in generations, with £4.4billion in place or in the pipeline.

The Council, backed by local MPs and the West Midlands Combined Authority, have tabled ambitious upgrade offers to the government for a total of £60million.

With tenders launched to create a state-of-the-art health and wellness centre, a green innovation corridor and a new city learning district, this is a pivotal moment for the city ​​to build on this momentum and become a city of opportunity.

Join us September 29 from 8-11 a.m. at Grand Station to discuss:

  • What Upgrading Means for Businesses and City Stakeholders
  • How offerings like the City Learning Quarter, Green Innovation Corridor and Health & Regeneration program will accelerate growth
  • The opportunities that will be created through the National Center for Sustainable Construction
  • How the city invests in the jobs and skills of its residents
