Ellesmere Port’s Development Board is encouraging local companies to take part in business networking event.
Designed to support the local business community, the event will help to investigate potential opportunities for growth and innovation and offer the opportunity to meet new contacts.
It will also allow guests to share best practice and discuss ways to move businesses forward in the current economic climate.
Event organiser, law firm Hillyer McKeown, has launched the new campaign to bring together businesses from across the area, introducing local businesses to one another to help develop business growth.
Chairman of the Ellesmere Port Development Board, Robert Mee, said: “Ellesmere Port is starting to reap the benefits from recent developments in education, retail and employment, which has increased positivity about the town’s future.
“This event will provide local businesses with a great opportunity to network with other local companies, create new contacts and build on existing ones.
“It will also provide a way for businesses to keep up-to-date with progress in their area and find about new developments.”
Richard Burnett, Client Development Manager for Hillyer McKeown, said: “We chose Ellesmere Port as the location for our first event in order to show our support to the Ellesmere Port Development Board in regenerating the Ellesmere Port area.
“The area is transforming and our vision is to bring together the local business community in order to encourage key collaborations and strategic partnerships that will help local businesses to grow.
“There is huge scope to encourage and develop new business relationships that could result in local businesses creating more opportunities for the local jobs market.”
The networking event will take place from 1.30pm on Friday, 27 April at The Saffron Restaurant on Whitby Road, Ellesmere Port.
