The East Suffolk Business Festival aims to raise the profile of the East Suffolk business community and seek to connect all of the business support and training agents together through a 10 day events programme.
It is based on the well-established West Suffolk festival model and aims to create opportunities for businesses to connect with each other and generate leads, to grow their business, widen their knowledge, and support training and development opportunities.
Many of the events will already be established that partners regularly put on and others will be specifically arranged for the festival. Any event will gain free publicity through a dedicated marketing campaign using social media as well as on a new website www.eastsuffolkbusinessfestival.org.
The Festival will begin on Monday 29th October with Screen Suffolk hosting a event around how filming can benefit local business and communities. Then on the final day, Friday 9th November, WDC are the headline sponsors of the Lowestoft and Waveney Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
In between those dates we have a packed programme ranging from training and advice sessions to networking and marketing events all being arranged by a number of different of organisations.
The two ‘Council Showcase’ days are designed to highlight the array of services that the Council has that can support businesses as well as promote a number of key projects and initiatives that local businesses might be interested in.
