About the Business Festival
The Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival has been developed by the Coventry & Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership and the Coventry & Warwickshire Growth Hub, and it is managed by Associate Events Limited.
The inaugural Festival took place in 2017 and achieved unprecedented success. Over 100 events saw nearly 5,000 attendees, 23% of whom were from outside the region, come together to network, share, collaborate and learn from each other why Coventry & Warwickshire is the Knowledge Capital of the UK.
Now in its third year, this annual Festival includes a wide-ranging programme of business events hosted by local organisations from across the region.
The aim is to bring Coventry & Warwickshire businesses together on an annual basis under one unified banner to encourage collaboration, networking, innovation, learning and sharing opportunities. Similarly, the Business Festival provides a great platform to show the rest of the world Coventry & Warwickshire’s strengths and investment potential and places the region at the heart of UK business.
Run by business, for business, the Festival is a unique opportunity for local organisations to get involved in something completely different. This could be by becoming a Festival sponsor or sector lead, by hosting an event, offering venue space or attending one, two or several events in the programme.
Events provide many ways to grow or enhance your business. This could include sourcing new supply chains; spotting cross-selling opportunities, through to trade shows, learning how to export for the first time or targeting new markets. The possibilities are endless.
Businesses of any size can apply to run an event - which can take any shape from a small networking workshop or seminar to a large trade show or national conference.
By hosting an event you will increase exposure to your business locally, regionally and nationally, develop your business networks and meet and connect with like-minded, industry experts.
There is something for every business need at the Coventry & Warwickshire Business Festival!
