Business festival all set to put Coventry & Warwickshire on the map

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

In its inaugural year, the two-week Festival has immediately taken its place as the largest business event in the region. A programme of 114 events will be attended by thousands

of visitors from within the Coventry and Warwickshire region and beyond.

The Festival comprises an array of business events hosted by organisations from across the region. It contains everything from trade shows, conferences and workshops to seminars, debates, showcases, networking meetings and webinars.

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

The packed Festival programme consists of over 100 events covering topics and subjects including professional and financial services, automotive and advanced manufacturing, education and logistics, gaming, health and wellbeing and digital and cultural.

With so much on offer, there will be something to appeal to everyone – whether a small or micro-business owner or large corporate organisation.

Nearly every event is free, though tickets 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.

The 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 shout about the fantastic opportunities this region has to offer to investors under one branded banner – the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival.

With such an impressive range of events, the 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). Other partners include the Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, Coventry University, Jaguar Land Rover and the University of Warwick.

Sponsors include CityFibre, Coventry University Enterprises, the Federation of Small Businesses and The Futureworks.
