I am delighted to say that we’ve received over 500 registrations for our 2017 Annual Conference taking place today. We are expecting a record audience to attend this year’s half-day conference from 8.30am to 1:30pm at the Chateau Impney, Droitwich.

Today’s event will help businesses and partners of all sectors and sizes to hear our latest priorities for the future, ensuring Worcestershire’s long-term prosperity for all of its community.

I am delighted to say that the Conference will be hosted by BBC Midlands Today’s main presenter, Mary Rhodes, who will be joined by keynote speaker Dave Coplin and other high-profile business representatives.

I also look forward to joining a large number of businesses for the ‘Healthy Business Breakfast’, sponsored by Bishop Fleming. Local businesses from health-related industries will be present to discuss some of the county’s latest innovations in health.

I would like to thank our conference sponsors for today’s event, Bishop Fleming, EBC Group,Hewett Recruitment, RCA Regeneration, The Training Academy, Thursfields Solicitors and Wild Edric Media..
