Creative industries are more important to the UK than ever. From tech to media and telecoms, the sector has flourished since the end of the financial crisis ten years ago, and grown at a rate that cannot be ignored.

“CBRE has also recently published a new analysis of the leading tech cities across the whole of Europe. Our EMEA Tech Cities Report ranks London as the top technology cluster within the capital cities and business centres with high-tech employment of over 70,000 people in Europe.”

“Nottingham’s improved ranking is a reflection of the efforts made by the City Council and NTU in particular to support the city’s creative economy and a mark of the increasing success of Nottingham’s creative businesses. It’s also a strong message to send to potential investors; Nottingham’s creative economy is on the up.”
