Blackpool: The Silicon Coast: business emergence and growth in Blackpool - Free Webinar

There’s good reason to be optimistic about doing business in Blackpool.

Did you know that Blackpool is at the forefront of post-Covid recovery?

Research by think tank Centre for Cities shows footfall in the resort is 30% above pre-lockdown levels. With a resurgence in customers and demand, local businesses are being supported to survive and grow by improvements in Blackpool’s digital offerings, which will be some of the most competitive in Britain.

Now part of a Faster Britain with a full fibre gigabit capable network running down the tramlines of the Fylde coast providing ultrafast broadband; with the North Atlantic Loop set to provide a digital link with the US; and investment across the regions, we look at the prominent role Blackpool is playing for business with new digital capabilities.
