THE main summit day of Liverpool's Global Entrepreneurship Congress generated more than pounds 560,000 for the city's economy, new figures revealed.

Around 3,000 international delegates, from 125 countries, attended the summit to hear speakers including Sir Richard Branson, Lord Heseltine, internet pioneer Martha Lane Fox and former Tesco chief Sir Terry Leahy.

The GEC was part of a wider week-long Festival of Entrepreneurship, which featured 80 events across the city.

Max Steinberg, chief executive of Liverpool Vision, which hosted the GEC, said: "Our GEC and Festival have clearly established Liverpool on the entrepreneurial map and demonstrated once again Liverpool can successfully host world-class events because of our mix of venues, hotels and attractions."
