Get involved in the biggest business event in the Black Country

Applications to host events in the new Black Country Business Festival can now be submitted via the website which went live on Monday 17th July.

The annual festival - driven by the Black Country Chamber of Commerce, is taking place for the first time from 23rd April to 4th May 2018. It will spearhead the Black Country Business calendar with a packed programme of exciting events run by businesses from across the region.

Over 100 events are expected and 7,500 people are anticipated to attend during the fortnight.

Any business can apply to run an event – which can take any shape from a seminar or workshop through to a trade show or major conference. Every event is being organised to ultimately benefit the people and businesses in the Black Country and help local economic growth.

The Business Festival will provide a stage to show the rest of the country what a brilliant place the Black Country is to live, work, do business and most of all invest.

Now is the time to get involved - whether this is as an event partner or sponsor, hosting an event or offering free venues where other Black Country organisations can hold their events.
