Thousands expected as Liverpool stages the International Festival for Business

Business leaders and captains of industry from around the world are arriving in Liverpool for the city's second International Festival for Business.

Three weeks of events will take place around the city, hoping to repeat the success of the previous festival in 2014 - which the organisers say resulted 280 million of trade and investment deals.

George Osborne, the Chancellor and Tatton MP, will formally open the event at Liverpool Exhibition Centre.
