When investing in property, it’s good to know that the local business landscape is healthy and on the rise. After all, property is only as strong as the local economy; the higher the employment levels, the greater the need for luxury accommodation.
To put your mind at ease, we’ve whipped up a list of some of the organisations and groups that keep Hull going from strength to strength.
With over 300 business members, Marketing Humber (AKA Hull Bondholders) works hard to improve local business through promotion, events, networking, hospitality offers and executive benefits. Whether a solicitor, consultant or a provider of industrial equipment, to become a Bondholder you need simply be passionate about Hull’s prosperity.
The tourism board for the region, Visit Hull and East Yorkshire is committed to attracting more visitors and increasing their engagement. Whilst giving suggestions and advice on everything from bird walks to historic landmarks, VHEY also focuses on information for business events and conferences.
Hull and Humber Chamber of Commerce
Our local Chamber of Commerce is an amalgamation of a few smaller ones over the last twenty years, with the Hull branch tracing its roots to 1837. Their motto is “Growing your business, building our economy,” which is pretty self-explanatory. Its 2,000+ members and affiliates focus on trade both in the UK and abroad, also training apprentices and providing expert advice tailored to your needs.
The Centre for Digital Innovation is a co-working space, tech incubator and the perfect environment for freelancers, start-ups and large organisations alike. With the fastest broadband around, a huge community of forward thinkers and stylish surroundings, this golden building contains the latest innovations in everything from 3D printing to online music distribution.
Any city worth its salt has a BID (Business Improvement District), and HullBID has greatly succeeded in bringing new life to the city centre over the last decade. Working toward collaboration across businesses and promoting what’s on offer, HullBID also organises the annual Fashion Week and Yum Food Festival, plus the regular Hull Street Food Nights.
The Culture Company
Though our time in the spotlight officially lasts one year, the team behind Hull UK City of Culture 2017 is to continue as a permanent independent arts organisation called the Culture Company. Its role will be the commissioning of world-class art programming, which during 2017 has included the Weeping Window poppies, the Turner Prize, and over one million visitors to Hull Museums.
For Entrepreneurs Only
Made up of likeminded entrepreneurs who collectively turn over £3 billion a year, FEO represents a huge range of local businesses and organisations. The group meets regularly to discuss projects, initiatives and potential ways to create wealth and jobs. It’s also an excellent source of motivation, with members giving talks and workshops on all kinds of business, leadership and tech topics.
Hull is a bustling hub of trade, tech innovation and culture, making it a wise investment on any level. To find out how you can get involved in property investment for as little as £2,000, contact our team today on 01482 215990 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
