BLACK COUNTRY CHAMBER DATES FOR YOUR DIARY
The Chamber has unveiled its events calendar for the next 12 months. Announcing the 2020 programme, Penny Griffiths (Events Co-ordinator) said: “Last year the Chamber held over 70 events and welcomed nearly 5,000 attendees. We have looked closely at the events which are popular and, following feedback from members; we’re pleased to unveil our packed diary.”
Over the next year, members and the business community can look forward to the return of favourites including three instances of the popular Baggies Breakfast and two Speed Networking events. Third Week Wednesdays, the regular free monthly event will continue at Wolverhampton’s Casino 36 following its launch in 2019.
"We have also created events where attendees can hear from an expert speaker talking about a hot topic as well as two speed-networking events; the first of which is at Village – The Hotel Club at Dudley in February and the second at Sandwell’s National Metalforming Centre in November. We’re particularly thrilled to be announcing a Spring and Autumn edition of the Black Country Business Fayre which proved such a popular concept last year. The Fayres are an affordable, fun and entertaining way for exhibitors to meet new customers and talk to a range of businesses offering discounts and promotions on the day.
“The Chamber’s policy and lobbying work will also be supported by a range of events in 2020,” continues Penny; “including newly sector refreshed forums, Bank of England events and other opportunities for our members to hear updates from experts on themes and trends which matter to their business. We are also planning to keep local firms up to date with briefings on legislative and regulatory changes and new members will be able to discover how to get their best from being part of the Chamber family at Maximising Your Membership events.”
