Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival is the regions largest business event
Businesses have just two weeks left to submit events to become part of Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival, the largest business event in the region.
The event will run from 19-30 November, and submissions will be open until 28 September. Events can be about anything, but particularly welcome are those in the key business festival sectors (automotive; business and comms; construction; creative and digital; education; games development, health, tourism and culture).
Events can take any shape – from a workshop or seminar to large scale exhibitions, conferences or even an online webinar. They must be held in Coventry or Warwickshire. To apply, visit: www.cwbusinessfestival.com/apply
Craig Humphrey (pictured right), managing director of the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership Growth Hub, said: “Event applications are being taken on a first come, first served basis. The final two weeks of the application process is always busy. As the programme is already over half full, I recommend that applications are submitted as soon as possible and not left to the last minute.
“It is totally free to run an event as part of the Festival and there could be substantial benefits to being part of the largest business event in the region including raising awareness, making new contacts and developing supply chains.”
Once approved as part of the programme, events are advertised on the Business Festival website. Current examples include access to finance; tackling skills shortages in the region; asset protection; tax relief in research and development; copywriting; using Linked In and much more.
