DCMS & Mobile UK explain how to make your place attractive for operators, infrastructure providers

About this event

Digital connectivity offers the potential to transform places and communities; through more efficient and effective delivery of health and social care services, transport systems and supporting people to live healthier, happier lives. It can also play a critical role in driving productivity and profitability in industries that have a significant impact on regional growth and prosperity such as tourism, manufacturing and agriculture.

What's this session about?

Securing investment for your place is key to deploying digital connectivity. In this session, hear from DCMS and Mobile UK on how you can make your place as attractive as possible for operators, infrastructure providers and other potential sources of investment. Plus hear, and have the chance to ask questions of, programmes and places that have been successful in this.

Digital Connectivity for Places Series

This session is part of a series, designed to support local authorities, regional authorities and LEPs on their digital connectivity and infrastructure journeys. Across four events, hear from those authorities who have been leading the way in securing advanced connectivity, gain first hand insights, learn how to attract investment and hear from private sector organisations about what they need for effective partnerships and collaboration.
