The Derbyshire Festival of Business showcases business capabilities in the local area

The Derbyshire Festival of Business consists of various activities and networking opportunities to boost post-covid recovery.

Multiple workshops, masterclasses, networking activities and exhibitions aim to showcase the extensive business capabilities in Derby and the surrounding areas.

As part of the Derbyshire Festival of Business, the D2N2 Growth Hub will be delivering two free conferences to businesses. They will be covering marketing trends and information around the support the growth hub offers.

The first of these free events will take place on Wednesday 9 March between 7.45am and 3.15pm at the Palace Hotel in Buxton. The conference will cover digital marketing, and various experts in the digital consultancy industry will discuss key trends developing for 2022. Similarly, there will be an engaging keynote speaker providing food for thought around the digital marketing sector. This conference is now fully booked.

The exhibitions element of the Derbyshire Festival of Business will be delivered in partnership with East Midlands Chamber and the University of Derby. The exhibition opportunity allows you to showcase your business to other local businesses based in Derbyshire or Nottinghamshire, as well as the wider business community. As part of the exhibition package, businesses will also receive entrance to the Digital Conference and a buffet lunch.

More information about these exhibition stands, including pricing, can be found on the East Midlands Chamber website.

The second free event will take place on Wednesday 6 April between 8.30am and 1.15pm at the Museum of Making in Derby. This event will showcase the support that the D2N2 Growth Hub has provided to local businesses, who are Growth Hub clients, as well as the impact this has had overall. Similarly, an inspiring keynote speaker will share their story and experiences, as well as a discussion about the future of the D2N2 Growth Hub and how to access the support that they provide to businesses.

Dr Peter Dewhurst, Commercial Director at the University of Derby said: “This festival is an opportunity to showcase what our county has to offer, to identify current and future talent, and to create opportunities for collaboration between businesses, the University, policy makers and advisory organisations, which will help us build a strong, resilient and inclusive economy as we recover from the impact and challenges of the pandemic. The conferences that are being delivered in Derby, Buxton and Chesterfield on the 9, 16 and 23 of March are three of the festival’s signature events, which will serve as showcases for the outstanding business talent across the county.”

Councillor Steve Hassall, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Decarbonisation, Strategic Planning and Transportation, said: “The Derbyshire Festival of Business is a great opportunity for SME businesses in the local area to find new ways to promote their business. The D2N2 Growth Hub is a vital asset that local business continues to rely on for expansion and it’s great to see they are striving to help even more organisations. We’re excited to see what their plans are for the future.”
