Expo Director Alan Keegan, Director of Business Development – UK Partnerships for the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries at UCLan, says: “We are proud to offer our most comprehensive and diverse programme of events ever with over two hundred hours presented as part of The Great Northern Creative Expo 2019. We continue on in the spirit of the Expo’s original founding principal of delivering the best events across the creative industries in the North of England.”
Richard Albiston, Creative Producer of the 2019 Expo, adds: “The Official Selection is a particular highlight of this programme which couldn’t happen without the tireless support of the Faculty of Culture and the Creative Industries at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). It is a fabulous opportunity for the students to engage and demonstrate their talents to an international audience.”
