Building Your Future

City Business Network

Swansea City joined up with the club’s City Business Network members for the recent ‘Building Your Future’ event.

The event, sponsored by the Ministry Group, took in a tour of Westacres new luxury development at Gower Heights in Upper Killay, before the guests were given a behind-the-scenes view of Swansea City’s first-team training base at Fairwood.

The event was focused around all things construction, with Westacres acting as hosts.

And managing director Ian Morgan spoke of the company’s progression, and their pride in creating jobs and giving back to the city of Swansea.

In addition, guests received a presentation from Swansea Council leader Rob Stewart on the regeneration plans for the city.

The 40-minute talk included an update on the ongoing Copr Bay development, the Kingsway and the repurposing strategy of Swansea’s city centre, which is hoped will help make the future a bright one.

Guests were also treated to a speech from Emma Wilkins of the Welsh Construction Show, which is Wales’ largest trade exhibition.

Emma spoke about the development the show has undergone over the years, her wealth of experience in delivering events, and the real benefits and economic advantages the Welsh Construction Show has provided to the industry.

With the Covid-19 pandemic preventing the 2021 instalment of the show taking place, she is confident it will return bigger and better than ever in 2022.
