Stevenage Borough Council Annual Business Event

Annual Business Event

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Annual Business Event and as part of our ongoing commitment to engage with our business community, Stevenage Borough Council will be holding its Annual Business Event on Tuesday 23rd July between 12pm and 2.30pm at the Novotel Hotel, Stevenage.

Since last year’s event, we have signed a major new agreement to work in partnership with Mace on the long term transformation of Stevenage Town Centre. This agreement will boost the economic vibrancy and vitality of our town centre and provide much needed residential, retail, restaurant and leisure uses for current and future residents, businesses and visitors. We have also entered into a separate agreement with REEF for the development of a further mixed use scheme in the town centre which is already on site.

We are keen to share further news on these developments, as well as respond to the priorities that local businesses raised with us at last year’s event and set out how Stevenage will contribute to the Herts Local Industrial Strategy, as well as consider how local businesses can get involved.

We will be sharing details of further support and resources available to businesses to assist with matters such as recruitment, upskilling and future workforce development, including Apprenticeship Reforms. The event will also outline support available for businesses that wish to enter global markets along with information concerning access to finance to help future proof business.

On top of all this businesses will be able to network with peers, senior SBC officers and elected Members and get your questions answered.

To attend the event, please RSVP to Mena Caldbeck, Business Relationship Manager mena.caldbeck@stevenage.gov.uk
