Related topics: Business and economic growth

Shropshire Council has today (Friday 26 April 2012) released 20 more tickets to next month’s Business Summit, after all places were booked. 

The Business Summit will take place on Monday 14 May 2012 from 5.30pm at Shrewsbury Town FC’s Greenhous Meadow, allowing local businesses a chance to help shape and grow Shropshire’s economy. 

Following the previous years’ format of questions and answers, this year’s summit promises to be more interactive around the theme of ’embracing new opportunities to grow the Shropshire economy’.  As well as having the chance to ask questions, there will also be facilitated roundtable discussions enabling delegates to raise ideas and opportunities to grow Shropshire’s economy. 

This dynamic approach will look to businesses to make the most of the ‘best’ of Shropshire, and how they can work with the council and other partners to provide the conditions that will help grow the economy.  The evening will also include a presentation outlining what’s changed in the local economy and a summary of emerging opportunities for businesses. 

Mike Owen, Shropshire Council’s Cabinet member for economic growth and prosperity, said:

“This event has proved extremely popular and I’m pleased that we can offer more places to local businesses, enabling them to make their contribution count.”
