Event Type:

Partner Events


Start: 24 May 2023 10AM

End: 24 May 2023 1:30PM


This event is organised by the Institute of Directors and the Hampshire Chamber of Commerce. The event will bring key stakeholders together to discuss the new status of Solent Freeport.

Solent Freeport opened for business in January 2023, unlocking billions of pounds of investment and creating thousands of new jobs. The Freeport is a major opportunity for the UK as it seeks to strengthen its trading position and develop new trading relationships.

The location makes it the UK’s most important gateway to European and global markets, with benefits ranging from tax concessions, infrastructure incentives, a customs free zone to boost redevelopment and government support to promote regeneration and innovation. Substantial regional growth will create many opportunities for directors to grow their businesses.

Hear from the Chairman of Solent Freeport and partner organisations on what this means for business, how to access support, HMRC advice including funding and what can be done to enhance skills to build the workforce needed.
