HBC’s Simon Carr holds court in Cannes – 09/03/11

Henry Boot Construction’s Managing Director hosted two key events at the largest property and real estate convention in Europe this week.

Because of his role on the Board of the newly formed Sheffield City Region Local Enterprise Partnership, Simon Carr was asked to speak at the events, which were organised by Creative Sheffield for the MIPIM 2011 Convention.

Based in Cannes, in the South of France, the Sheffield Dinner was hosted by Simon last night, and included senior representatives from major firms including HSBC, Barclays and leading property developers.

At lunchtime today, he hosted the Sheffield Lunch, alongside other private sector representatives from the City, promoting growth and opportunity in the Sheffield and South Yorkshire region.

"In my role as Board Member for the City's LEP, I am pleased to be given the opportunity to promote Sheffield on the international stage.
"We need to maximise the economic potential of our key physical assets, including Doncaster Sheffield Airport, the Advanced Manufacturing Park and of course, Sheffield City Centre.
“Further development of these assets will support growth of our priority business sectors and the creation of those much needed jobs in the region."
