Humber Freeport has launched a search to find the region’s rising property star, with a ticket for the huge UKREiiF investment showcase up for grabs.

Taking place in Leeds from May 21st to 23rd, UKREiiF is the UK’s leading investment and infrastructure forum.

Bringing together the biggest names in property, investment, planning and development, the three-day conference will attract more than 10,000 attendees, with 700 speakers across 30 stages, and over 150 exhibitors.

Humber Freeport will be represented at UKREiiF, showcasing the region’s powerful proposition as a magnet for global investment and development.

And, as part of its commitment to skills and talent, Humber Freeport has reserved a place for the region’s rising “Prop Star.”

The successful candidate will be an early career professional – aged under 25 – making a big impact and forging a successful path in the fields of property, planning, development or investment, in either the private or public sector.

Humber Freeport Chair Simon Bird said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for a young property professional to attend the UK’s biggest event in the world of property and investment.

“It’s a rare chance to hear from some of the biggest names in the industry, speak to leading exhibitors, develop valuable contacts and gain invaluable insight and profile at this enormously prestigious event.

“Humber Freeport is playing a major role in attracting large scale investments to the region and our attendance at UK UKREiiF presents a major opportunity to promote the region and the additional benefits of freeport status.

“We’re pleased to have launched this competition to showcase the next generation of property and investment stars and open up a tremendous opportunity for the winning candidate.”

UKREiiF is held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, and surrounding New Dock.

To be in with a chance of joining the Humber Freeport team at UKREiiF, entrants must:

  • Write a short bio about themselves, including their career history and current role (maximum 50 words).
  • Summarise why they’d love to attend UKREiiF and how it will support their personal and professional development (maximum 100 words).

Please send all entries to, using the subject line ‘Prop Star.’

Self-nominations and nominations by colleagues are both welcome. The deadline for entries is Friday 12th April.

Freeport status in the Humber aims to generate more than 7,000 jobs in sectors including green energy, chemicals and advanced manufacturing.

Significant investments have already been secured in Humber Freeport tax sites, including Pensana’s rare earth processing facility at Saltend Chemicals Park near Hull and Metsä Tissue’s planned tissue paper mill in Goole.

These investments will stimulate skilled job creation both directly and through the wider supply chain.

Humber Freeport is also creating a skills sub-group to help ensure the region has the right people, with the right expertise, to drive economic growth.
