We want to extend a huge thank you to all the waterfront and city centre residents, and local businesses and councillors—over 100 people in all—who attended our 2020 Waterfront residents meeting last night, at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool.

Every year we hold this event, at Engage Liverpool’s own cost, to give residents a clear picture of the events and changes that will be happening around them in the coming year. And this year was no different – with updates from over a dozen organisations including:

As always, thanks to the attendees who filled in our feedback forms, we’re able to bring you a few of the comments from residents there on the night:

  • “Fast and furious but very informative. Brilliant progress. Thank you.”
  • “Great – really enjoyed this.”
  • “Have attended a few such events before, but was very impressed by the amount of info from the speakers, even though their time was short!”
  • “Very positive event, thanks. Would like to hear more about the Rice Mill development next year.”
  • “It was a very informative and welcoming evening. Thank you!”
  • “What a city. Makes me proud.”

Of those who filled in a feedback form, 95% said they learned something new last night, 70% met somebody they didn’t know, and 90% would come to an event like this again – which are all really encouraging figures.

And here’s a summary of our tweets from the evening, showing what happened:
