Cornwall Festival of Business: be a part of it

With 13 weeks to go until the advent of the inaugural Cornwall Festival of Business, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce is urging the business community to get involved

Just as Cornwall is close to hitting its silly season where the population swells and the roads melt, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce is looking to the colder months and its Cornwall Festival of Business. Set to be the business event of the autumn, this will be a week of mini events and workshops across the Duchy.

Cornwall Chamber of Commerce opens the week with mimosas and a light breakfast at its launch event held at Trevince; holds two marketing workshops in the Chamber offices, celebrates everything Cornwall Business at the tenth Cornwall Business Fair and is organising a grand finale for the Friday, held at St Austell Brewery. The events calendar is booking up with other one-day-festivals, workshops, open days and masterclasses everywhere from St Agnes to Falmouth and from sole traders to large employers. A calendar of confirmed events can be found on the Cornwall Festival of Business website.

Events are not exclusive to members; any business is encouraged to apply to hold an event of any shape or size, to demonstrate the diversity in sectors, sizes and geography, with some events ten or fewer delegates. The main criterion is that it must benefit Cornwall.

Businesses are encouraged to submit an event idea by no later than 7 August to benefit from the marketing power of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. Partnering with Business Cornwall to produce an event guide, Cornwall Chamber of Commerce is driving an exciting calendar of events and offering event listings and sponsorship packages.
