With the buzz of Birmingham2022 running through our beautiful city, we were privileged to speak at the recent Creative & Digital Technologies event held at UK House. This special event was hosted in conjunction with West Midlands Growth Company, West Midlands Combined Authority & the Department for International Trade.

Developed by UK House and the Commonwealth Business Forum, both are part of the Commonwealth Games Business and Tourism Programme & have a shared aim of supporting UK and international businesses to find opportunities in specific industries.

Their nine priorities are:

  • Commonwealth Business Forum
  • Creative and Digital Technologies
  • Data Driven Healthcare
  • Education
  • Food and Drink
  • Future Mobility
  • Sports Economy
  • Tourism
  • Legacy

In addition, each sector had a dedicated day at the UK House during which they provided a range of in-depth perspectives on the trade and investment opportunities available in the regions and across the nations. 

These West Midlands Sector Showcase Days were a unique and exclusive in-person opportunity for businesses and investors considering expanding or investing in the UK. 

We attended the Create Tech – Get to Know the West Midlands– “The Power of 3D: Creating a UK Talent Pool” and showcased the work we did for Birmingham2022 with the digital version of Perry the mascot. Along with our #PoseWithPerry work, Taran also discussed his journey & successes within the world of immersive technology.

We were honoured to be involved in this event and enjoyed the opportunity to meet so many new people, as well as our peers from across the region.
