Leader of Newport City Council, Bob Bright stated:

2014 has been a pivotal year for Newport including a significant physical transformation, a boost in confidence and having been on the world stage yet again as host city of the NATO Wales Summit. This second Newport City Summit is a great opportunity to reflect on the past 12 months and to plan for the exciting and dynamic future ahead. The summit will again bring key Newport stakeholders together, and is an event that you can’t afford to miss.

Ian Edwards, recently promoted from Chief Operating Officer to Chief Executive for The Celtic Manor Resort, said:

The last 12 months have been extremely positive for the City of Newport and the surrounding region. Hosting the world’s most powerful leaders at NATO and having the outline planning approved for the Wales International Convention Centre have further strengthened the region’s professional credentials, underlining just what a fantastic place Newport is. This summit offers an ideal opportunity to review our successes and plan many more in the future.

The summit was organised to build on the findings of the ReNewport report, recommending ways to drive economic growth within the city. The inaugural Newport Summit was held in February this year and was addressed by business and council leaders, academics and officials, and attended by 150 of the city’s key stakeholders.
