HULL: David Kilburn, chief executive of MKM Building Supplies and sponsor of this year's Yorkshire International Business Convention, is looking forward to seeing heavyweight political speakers John Prescott and Michael Portillo.

The two political heavyweights will be squaring up onstage at the Yorkshire International Business Convention in Bridlington.

The YIBC has earned a place as one of the most prestigious and important events in the business calendar, bringing together the region's key business figures and most prominent professionals under one roof.<

Mr Kilburn said: "I'm sure, with those personalities, it will live up to our expectations!"

This year, speakers include retail guru Mary Portas, Sir Richard Branson's former right hand man, Will Whitehorn, and world record-breaking athlete, Steve Cram. Mr Kilburn said MKM was delighted to continue its annual sponsorship of the YIBC.

"Local companies must keep supporting the Convention as it continues to bring world class speakers to the local stage," he said.
