"By Business, for Business"


Leicester and Leicestershire has one of the fastest growing regional economies within the UK outside of London. The LBF provides a fantastic platform to share and place the innovations that have contributed to our region's outstanding growth, on a global platform.


Every year, the Leicester Business Festival brings influencers, innovators and inspiration together into a unique and exciting fortnight of free business events that take place across the whole region.

Our businesses and organisations are the driving force behind the LBF. All packaged into an outstanding two-week business festival that offers something for everyone from local sole traders and SMEs looking for business growth opportunities, to multi-nationals seeking to recruit or contract.

The dates for the 2020 LBF have been released and next year, the sixth Leicester Business Festival will take place from 2nd to 13th November.
