Please read on further for downloads and more information about what happened at the event.

The announcement of Investment Zones in the “mini-budget” of September 2022 offers the Humber region further opportunity to build on its successful freeport bid.

This event will explore how Investment Zones will help enhance and accelerate the delivery of freeport benefits and the links into the broader innovation agenda.

Investment Zones offer enhanced tax benefits and planning easements to stimulate new economic growth. The measures on offer will help consolidate the Humber region at the forefront of the energy transition and facilitate significant inward investment.


Dafydd Williams of Associated British Ports will give an overview and update on the freeport’s proposals and the impact of investment zones.  

Thomas White of Connected Places Catapult will cover the potential developments in port and logistics related innovation.
