Jones Harris Director Martin Wigley joined the panel at the Lancashire Business View magazine launch on 21 November, contributing to the Blackpool & Fylde Coast Hotspots discussion.
Organised to coincide with the publication of the new issue, the November event marked the launch of the new magazine design.
It was also an opportunity for people to take a look around the new Lancashire Energy HQ, recently completed at the site of the former Blackpool Airport terminal.
Nick Gerrard from Blackpool Council spoke about the extensive regeneration of Blackpool. Some of which (for example the Talbot Road tramway extension and the new Conference Centre) is well underway. Plans for the redevelopment of the Central Station site are still under wraps but due to be unveiled soon.
Fylde Coast Hotspots
The Fylde Coast Hotspots discussion began with an opportunity for Martin to introduce himself and Jones Harris, and his twenty years plus of personal experience of working here on the Fylde Coast. His own experience is what made him as a guest expert for the evening, added to which is the experience of his colleagues. Questions followed, put to the panellists by LBV Publisher Richard Slater.
Martin said “Although we’ve been to these events before, it was good to take part for the first time. The event was well attended and a great opportunity to get the Jones Harris name known within the audience.”
