The UK City of Culture 2021 bid is an opportunity for Stoke-on-Trent to establish itself as a national centre for arts, heritage and culture, and if successful would put the city firmly into the cultural spotlight, attracting millions of pounds into the local economy through investment in the arts and an increase in visitors and jobs. Winning cities become hubs for major national and international cultural events, including the Turner Prize, and draw significant investment to deliver a year's programme packed with a huge variety of different art and culture.

About the speaker:
Paul Williams, on secondment from his role as Head of Staffordshire University's Business School is leading the bid team for Stoke-on-Trent's entry for the UK City of Culture 2021, and will talk to us about how Stoke-on-Trent is aiming to meet the bid criteria so as to be shortlisted at the end of April 2017, and how the use of information technology will help to differentiate Stoke-on-Trent's bid from the competition.
