East Midlands Chamber has been announced as a key partner for Leicester Business Festival 2024.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, the festival takes place from 4th-15th November and will be made up of around 80 events. Businesses across Leicestershire are expected to create seminars, expert panel discussions and workshops.

Over the ten years since Leicester Business Festival’s launch there have been 938 events, attended by 43, 000 people.  A mixture of digital and in-person sessions have included round table discussions, product demonstrations, stand-up comedy, quizzes and showroom tours.

Alongside East Midlands Chamber, key partners for 2024 include the University of Leicester, Everards of Leicestershire, The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, Leicester Hospitals Charity, and TheMusicLicence, by PPL PRS Ltd.

East Midlands Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said: “I very much look forward to supporting Leicester Business Festival once again.  Our partnership is long-standing and year after year the festival has given us the opportunity to champion the economic vitality of Leicestershire.  The festival is an effective platform to share knowledge, ideas and for businesses to learn from each other and network.

“East Midlands Chamber is a leading advocate of the business community across Leicestershire so it’s always beneficial being able to engage with many businesses of different sizes and industries at the festival. The timing couldn’t be better this year, as the Chamber’s Leicestershire Business Awards take place on 8th November when the limelight will be on the outstanding achievements of the county’s businesses.”
