ANNUAL CHAMBER AWARDS & CONFERENCE ANNOUNCED AS REGION REBOOTS, REBUILDS AND REBOUNDS
This year, the Black Country Chamber of Commerce has been running its biggest and most ambitious campaign in its history, Black Country 2.0 as a response to the economic challenges businesses are tackling because of Brexit, COVID-19 and a radically altered trading landscape.
On November 11th, the Chamber will be holding its first-ever conference examining the economic prospects for regional firms and celebrating the success of local companies and individuals as part of the Black Country 2.0 campaign.
With levelling-up, supply chain issues, remote working, post-pandemic skills shortages, sustainability, and other factors high on the agenda, the Conference will be the flagship event of Black Country 2.0 and feature a range of speakers exploring themes and topics which matter to businesses today.
A full line-up will be announced in due course.
The Conference will take place in accordance with the latest COVID-19 secure guidelines and will welcome a limited physical audience at Wolverhampton Racecourse and will be broadcast live online.
