2015 was the first year of the Mayoral 100 Club and I was delighted so many companies, from such a diverse range of industries, signed up to support this initiative. This demonstrates there is a real appetite for external organisations to support our cultural event programmes and maintain the vibrancy of our city. 2015 was proof that this business model really works and gives businesses from all sizes the opportunity to promote their brand with a vibrant international cultural event as the backdrop. It was my pleasure to announce a local SME as the Title Sponsor for the International Mersey River Festival proving that you have to be in it to win it. My ambition is for our 2015/16 season of the Mayoral 100 Club to become bigger, better, and highly engaging for great B2B networking, B2C opportunities whilst investing in this wonderful city.
The 2016 event, planned for the weekend of 3rd – 5th June 2016, will showcase the city and waterfront at its best with an even bigger and better programme of events as a result of your generous investment. This positive economic impact benefits the city, creates jobs and generates an overall feel good factor in the community.
I am really delighted that so many companies, from such a diverse range of industries, have signed up so far, which demonstrates there is a real appetite for external organisations to support our cultural event programmes. I look forward to welcoming even more organisations over the coming months and to meeting with you in the year ahead.
Joe Anderson OBE, Mayor of Liverpool
