Black Country businesses and organisations with conference or meeting facilities are being asked to get involved in the new, two-week Black Country Business Festival starting on 23 April 2018.
The Business Festival, in association with the Black Country Chamber of Commerce and supported by the University of Wolverhampton and Talbots Law, is a brand new ‘festival’ of business events running throughout the Black Country between 23 April and 4 May 2018.
Events will be put on by local companies for the benefit of other businesses and individuals. As they will largely be free to attend, venues across the Black Country are currently being sought for use by event hosts during the Festival.
Corin Crane, chief executive of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce said, “We are keen to hear from any Black Country business or venue with meeting space or conference facilities that would be willing to offer their venue to other organisations for free, or at a heavily discounted rate in the fortnight.
“This could be a fantastic promotional opportunity for businesses or conference venues to showcase what they have to offer – and could quite possibly lead to lots of repeat business in the future.
“Bookings would be made on an individual basis directly by the event organiser and would of course, be subject to availability at the discretion of the venue. Any business or venue that is able to get involved simply needs to email firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Anyone can apply to run an event in the Business Festival, by completing a short form on the website. The application process closes on 22 February 2018.
As well as bringing about learning, sharing and collaboration opportunities, the Business Festival aims to draw attention to the Black Country, showcasing the region to investors and businesses which might be relocating.
