The Birmingham Post hosted a 'Birmingham 2030' panel event in association with design and planning consultancy Barton Willmore.

The panel members were Andy Street, mayor of the West Midlands Combined Authority, Kathryn Ventham, partner at Barton Willmore, Gordon Shearer of KPMG, and Victoria Ball, chairman of Birmingham Future and a solicitor with Trowers & Hamlins.

The room was full of lively discussion and provided an insight into the future infrastructure of Birmingham.

The room heard that, with digital processes revolutionising every aspect of society, it must continuously develop and support industries to succeed and provide skills to younger generations.
