News Countdown to start of C&W Business Festival

Monday 20th November will see the start of the first, annual Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival.

In its inaugural year, the Business Festival has already swooped to the top as the largest business event in the region, with a programme consisting of 114 events and thousands expected to attend from within and outside of the Coventry and Warwickshire area.

The Festival comprises an amalgamation of business events put on by organisations from across the region.

It contains everything from impressive trade shows, conferences and workshops to seminars, debates, showcases, networking meetings and webinars.

There will be plenty going on over the fortnight. The packed Business Festival programme consists of over 100 different events that cover a wide range of different topics and subjects from professional and financial services, automotive and advanced manufacturing, education and logistics, to gaming, health and wellbeing and digital and cultural events.

Events are being staged in every district in the region from North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth and Rugby to Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon and Coventry.

With so much on offer, there will be something in the Business Festival that will appeal to everyone – whether a small and micro–business owner or large corporate organisation.

Nearly every event is free and absolutely anyone can attend.

Tickets to events must be booked in advance and are available on a first come, first served basis through the Business Festival website www.cwbusinessfestival.com

There is still time to get tickets but many events have already sold out, so it is advisable to book as soon as possible.

This brand-new Business Festival initiative has been developed by the Coventry &Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and the Coventry & Warwickshire Growth Hub.

It is designed to bring the local business community together and at the same time, shout about the fantastic opportunities this region has to offer to investors under one branded banner – the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival.

Having grown to a remarkable size in its first year and with such an impressive range of events, the Business Festival will certainly showcase Coventry and Warwickshire’s strengths, opportunities and potential as a beacon for investment, to the rest of the UK.

The 2017 Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival is supported by headline partner, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC).

The MTC engineers have been working alongside our team. We’ve all been impressed by their modest attitudes and exceptional knowledge. As a result, we’ll be manufacturing components that couldn’t previously be made.
