European Concurrent Engineering Conference 2000

With a population of almost 300,000, Leicester is the largest city in the East Midlands and the tenth largest in the country.

Its importance was first recognised by the Romans and later by the Danes, who used it as a strategicstronghold to control the Midlands. Since then it has developed into a major commercial and manufacturing centre, known better for the diversity of its trade than for its dependence on a single industry.

It is also a historic meeting place. For centuries people of different races and cultures have gathered in Leicester, create a rich and unique heritage. This diversity continues today. The City's thriving ethnic minority community accounts for over a quarter of Leicester's population and continues to enrich city life.
