Businesses in Calderdale are invited to find out more about the opportunities available for them to expand, at a new event in Halifax.
The ‘Tomorrow’s Business – Beyond Borders’ event is the first in what’s planned to be an annual series of business events.
The event will take place across Halifax at The Piece Hall, Central Library and Archives, Square Chapel and the Leeds Beckett University Business Centre at Piece Mill. It’s being delivered by Calderdale Council in partnership with the Federation of Small Businesses, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP), and Santander.
The event, on Wednesday 12 September, is aimed at local businesses which are looking to take the next step in their growth and open up their business to new markets. Businesses will be able to explore innovations in export, learn how to access new markets, hear about funding opportunities and much more.
There’ll also be advice and guidance available from new and experienced exporters and government bodies, plus question and answer sessions and a range of in-depth workshops.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Strategy, Cllr Barry Collins, said:
“Businesses in Calderdale which are looking to expand or find out more about exporting their product are likely to find this event invaluable. Businesses who wouldn’t normally have considered exporting are also encouraged to attend to see just how accessible the world of export can be.
“Not only will this free event offer expert advice about how to prepare your business for entering the international stage, but it will also be an excellent opportunity to network with a whole range of businesses in Calderdale and from across the region.”
The event runs from 10am-4pm and is free to attend. Any business looking to expand or grow is welcome.
