After much anticipation The Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2012 website has now been launched.

The website provides all of the details about the event with a few secrets still to be revealed. From world-class speakers, to thousands of delegates, to best of breed exhibitors and some amazing sponsors, #YMC2012 will be the North of England’s finest business event… and it’s here in Yorkshire.

Bigger and better than ever before, The Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2012 is will have more than 3,000 delegates and 150 exhibitors, along with the most impressive line-up of speakers, Q & A panellists and industry leaders assembled in Yorkshire for many a year.

Combining humility, humour and world-class business brains, our Billion Pound Panel will once again appear at The Yorkshire Mafia Conference. With a new line-up including Jonathan Straight, founder of Straight PLC, and James Lambert , CEO of R+R Ice Cream, the Panel, run in the style of BBC’s Question Time, will allow delegates to put forward question to the brightest business minds in Yorkshire.

Our second panel – Hey Big Spenders!- – will feature procurement professionals who collectively have world class experience of direct and advisory spending of what amounts to a staggering £10bn – about 15% of the GDP in Yorkshire. Delegates will be able to put questions to the panellists, including Shirley Cooper , Executive Director for Europe at WE Connect International, who has £2bn of procurement expertise.

Our speaker line-up is the strongest seen in Yorkshire for years. From speakers of Social Media, to Unplugged interview sessions with some of Yorkshire’s best minds in business. We’re not bringing you consultants, self-appointed experts or gurus. We’re bringing you something much better…

We will be posting further details of our panellists and speakers in line with our PR releases

Our seminar line up was fully booked in under 48 hours last time, and with over 1000 delegates already pre-registered and stands over half full, time is running out if you want to be involved with YMC 2012
