The dates for this year’s Leicester Business Festival fortnight have been set as Monday 29 October to Friday 9 November.
Leicester Castle Business School is again the Business Festival Headline Partner, having signed up in 2017 for a three-year term. East Midlands Chamber, the LLEP Business Gateway and East Midlands Airport are also continuing to support the Festival for a further two years.
In its fourth year, the Festival is now embedded into the business calendar, and is continuing to grow and support the Leicester and Leicestershire business community.
The 2017, there were over 10,000 attendees, over a quarter of whom came from outside of Leicestershire (including 80 people who travelled from as far afield as Russia, China, USA, France, Greece and even Ecuador!). Nearly a quarter of the 154 events were ‘sold out’ and promotion of the Business Festival reached over 31 million people.
With events covering a vast range of business subjects, there is something for everyone - from tradeshows, seminars, workshops to award ceremonies and recruitment fayres, in all corners of the city and county. Eighty-eight per cent of those who attended in 2017, said that the Festival positively affected their business.
On 12 February, the new application process will open on the LBF website for those who want to run events. Applications are expected to come in rapidly and as the number of events will be
limited to 125, businesses apply as soon as possible.
There are still opportunities available to support the 2018 Business Festival and the more organisations that get involved, the further the reach and impact can be enhanced. To discuss sponsorship opportunities or for more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0116 464 5995.
