Join us and an array of our regional partners for the first of our annual BusinessFest events. 

Over the course of the day, we will follow your business lifecycle journey – from that first spark of an idea, right through to successfully exiting. We’ll be sharing all of our top tips, highlighting potential challenges (and how to overcome them!), and mapping a pathway to growing your business.


During BusinessFest you’ll have the opportunity to:


  • Listen, learn, and share with members of your business community.
  • Hear from a number of our partners taking part in panel sessions throughout the day, every hour on the hour! Join for all or just some of the sessions (separate session booking will be available)
  • Discover the variety of business support and workshops available across the South East Midlands
  • Meet your local business support network who will be available all day in the exhibition hall showcasing their programmes
