Huddersfield Business Week is set to return this October following its launch in 2019. The event, which will take place between October 4 and 8, aims to bring the local business community together after the challenges of the past 18 months.
The event will showcase the diverse range of businesses in the town and provide a platform to share knowledge and best practice to help enhance the outcomes of the local community.
Organised by Lindley-based PR and marketing agency KC Communications, Huddersfield’s first business week was hailed as a massive success as hundreds of delegates across the Yorkshire region attended to participate in over 40 events hosted throughout the week.
KC Communications decided to set up the business week back in 2019 due to the lack of local networking opportunities and encourage businesses to move or stay in Huddersfield, attracting inward investment.
This year, the organisers are encouraging businesses and professionals to provide their input as to what they want to see from this year’s event, which can be found on the Huddersfield Business Week website, to ensure the event delivers what the local business community needs.
Katrina Cliffe, founder and managing director of KC Communications, said: “We decided to launch the event back in 2019 after feeling that Huddersfield businesses had so much to offer but often would venture either way along the M62 when it came to looking for suppliers who could meet their needs.
“The feedback from both those who held events and those who attended was exceptional and it was great to hear that business was done as a result. After such a challenging 18 months we hope this year’s Huddersfield Business Week will help kickstart the local economy to provide growth and jobs for the region.
“There is so much hidden talent across Huddersfield, and often there is the assumption that companies located in the big cities are the ones who are more up to the task – let’s prove them wrong again.”
Any Huddersfield-based business with an HD postcode can get involved by hosting an event and register on the Huddersfield Business Week website with KC Communications assisting with promotion.
Any group or individual looking to attend can also check the website’s events section to sign-up for an event that interests them.
