The International Festival for Business 2014 (IFB2014) was held in Liverpool over 50 days in June and July 2014 and attracted visitors from all around the world.

David Parrish was appointed to co-ordinate the delivery of events for the Creative and Digital thematic sector at the International Festival for Business 2014, working alongside Kevin McManus and Cathy Skelly at ACME/Liverpool Vision.

David is a specialist creative and digital industries management consultant, trainer and speaker. He works internationally and used his international contacts in the creative and digital industries to attract world-class businesses and events to IFB2014.

The International Festival for Business 2014 accelerated global business growth for creative and digital enterprises by connecting them with the smartest entrepreneurial minds and best business opportunities in the world.

IFB2014 featured hundreds of world-class events from 05 June to 24 July 2014 in Liverpool, attracting visitors from across the globe, and bringing £100 million worth of investment into the UK economy.

The British Prime Minister David Cameron said:

“I am absolutely delighted to give my full support to the International Festival for Business. I think it’s an excellent idea and the Government will be behind you every step of the way.”

A number of high profile people in the creative and digital sector nationally and internationally endorsed this initiative and showed their support for the creative and digital strand of IFB2014 by being named as Ambassadors.
