This summer Liverpool is the host City for the International Festival for Business (IFB) 2014.

The IFB 2014 is the largest global concentration of business events during 2014. The 50-day festival runs across 7 weeks in June and July and will attract business delegates and trade intermediaries from around the world.

 IFB Culture will coincide with this year’s Festival the IFB have and will provide the most extensive cultural programme in the city since European Capital of Culture 2008. There is a feast of festivals, exhibitions, art events, theatre shows, and music in all genres, dance, film, new media, street art and flash mobs.

Tate Liverpool’s spectacular summer shows Mondrian and his Studios and Nasreen Mohamedi will be on display as part of the IFB Culture programme. Delegates who wish to attend these exhibitions after 15.00 will receive a reduced ticket rate of £6. To claim the offer just show your IFB pass at the front desk. These tickets cannot be booked in advance.

Make sure to stop by during the opening weekend of these exciting exhibitions to hear the music that inspired Piet Mondrian and Nasreen Mohamedi. The weekend of 7-8 June will play host to specially commissioned drop-in performances, running as part of IFB Culture. During the morning Milapfest’s Tarang Ensemble will play a series of ragas known to have been a source of inspiration to Mohemedi, while in the afternoon Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s Ensemble 10/10 will play the jazz that Mondrian indulged in at his favourite Parisian jazz hang-out, the café Le Boeuf sur le Toit.
