The 2019 Worcestershire Festival of Business will be held on Friday 13th September at the iconic Chateau Impney Hotel in Droitwich. Now in its sixth year, the annual celebration of Worcestershire enterprise and entrepreneurship returns to The Regent Centre, Chateau Impney after exhibitors and visitors hailed the 2018 event a huge hit.
The Worcestershire Festival of Business is organised by Worcestershire Enterprise Ltd, the ‘social enterprise’ behind the #WorcestershireHour phenomenon on Twitter. Stuart Allen, the MD of Worcestershire Enterprise Ltd explains; “#WorcestershireHour is a virtual networking event that uses the Global social media platform of Twitter to benefit our local businesses, charities and communities. The Festival of Business allows all those that take part in the virtual community to come together and meet face to face.”
With the location ideally placed for M5 access the event attracts business visitors from both North and South of the region. Last year visitors travelled from as far afield as Leeds and London.
Stuart added “With free access and free parking, the Worcestershire Festival of Business is the one exhibition you really must not miss. We have some great exhibitors already confirmed from right across the business spectrum.”
Prior to the main exhibition there is a breakfast networking event and last years’ event was a ‘sell out’ with 150 attending, so we have moved to a larger room for this year.
The event supports a locally based charity each year and for 2019 that will be Leukaemia Care UK based in Worcester.
Exhibitors and potential sponsors are urged to contact Stuart as soon as possible. Exhibitor opportunities start at just £95 to encourage businesses to attend that have never done a business exhibition before.
The event is actively seeking sponsors to help cover costs including a headline sponsor. Stuart can be contacted on 01905 384314 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
