AGENDA

SUMMIT AGENDA / 7-8 OCTOBER 2020

AVAILABLE DIGITALLY AND ON DEMAND

The new decade brings new focus and as we emerge from the COVID-19 crisis and approach the end of the Brexit transition period, New Horizons looks towards a time of significant change.

Spread across two days with a main plenary studio session running each day from 9am to 12pm, followed by specialist breakout sessions and with on-demand content, this year’s Summit will focus primarily on the economic recovery, the role the private equity and venture capital industry will play in the recovery and the industry’s role in the UK’s transformation.
