Friday 20 May 2022 – Reflection

What a week it has been! We are so thrilled to have had such an important event happen in Leeds, right on our HQ’s doorstep and are proud to have partnered up with UKREiiF. It was also an invaluable opportunity for our team at Formation 3D to showcase their drone videography skills and we look forward to seeing their work used to promote UKREiiF 2023, which is set to take place in Leeds next May.

A big thank you also to everyone who attended our fringe events on Monday and Tuesday night and especially to those who have travelled far and wide to attend the first ever UKREiiF. See you next year!

Thursday 19 May 2022 – Day 3 at UKREiiF

Although not as quite as sunny, the final day of UKREiiF at Leeds Dock was an equally interesting day of panel discussions and conversations with delegates. Highlights includes the ‘Healthy Ageing and Living: A global investment opportunity’ talk first thing in the morning at Leeds Royal Armouries and a lively discussion on ‘What will Retail and Hospitality Development look like in 2030?’.

With our HQ based in Leeds, we couldn’t miss the ‘This is Leeds’ panel discussion and hear from Amy Leech from Leeds Playhouse, Gary Hetherington from Leeds Rhinos, Lizzie Murphy from the Yorkshire Post, Bobby Thandi from XR Games and Sharon Brigden from SLPR.
