Leicester Business Festival: last few days to submit events

Applications to host an event in the Leicester Businesses Festival (LBF) need to be submitted by 31st August.

Nearly 100 event applications have been submitted over summer period with more expected to arrive over the remaining few days.

The Festival, partnered by Leicester Castle Business School, is a fortnight of business events taking place across the city and county between 23rd October and 3rd November. This year promises to be the biggest and best in the Business Festival’s three-year history, with something for everyone from micro businesses to large corporates.

Any business or organisation can apply to host an event, which can take any shape from a seminar or workshop through to a trade show or major conference.

Events are being listed on the LBF website as and when they are confirmed. Most events are completely free to attend although tickets need to be reserved on line in advance.

The varied programme will appeal to a diverse audience with events ranging from understanding paid advertising and legal basics for SMEs, to a showcase of Leicester’s innovative and quality designer makers at LCB Depot and #morethanbasketball – a national basketball conference and exhibition - the first to be held in the UK, which is anticipated to attract a high-profile audience from across the country.
