First Business Festival events announced

The closing date for applications to Leicester Business Festival is only weeks away on Friday 9 September. Businesses are getting prepared and booking their event slots ahead of the deadline.


The Leicester Business Festival takes place from 7-18 November 2022 and is not only the largest of its kind in the region but is also the most unique date in the business calendar. With up to 80 events set to fill the festival fortnight this dedicated time aims to support and enhance business opportunities locally and shine the spotlight on the area as a place to invest.


Here’s a flavour of what is already in the calendar for the festival programme:

Plans are also well underway for dedicated events showcasing and creating opportunities around the benefits of businesses collaborating with students from De Montfort University.


And an integral part of the festival will also be Leicester Giving Day which falls on Friday 18 November. Leicester Giving Day is a simple but impactful initiative launched by Embark CSR that will enable companies and educational establishments in Leicester and Leicestershire to showcase their philanthropic support for charities and local communities. It will also bring the work of charities and community organisations to the attention of the public.


Richard Osborn, Regional director at Excello Law, Chair and a director of the LBF Community Interest Company (CiC) said: “It’s great to see events coming through in advance of the deadline. This means businesses have secured their slots and can now make the most of the lead up time from a preparation and promotional perspective. With only weeks left to apply the key is that the event is appealing and impactful.


“Thank you to all businesses who get involved in the festival to create a unique and exciting fortnight full of free business events.”


Applications must be submitted via the website www.leicesterbusinessfestival.com by Friday 9 September. For more information contact hello@leicesterbusinessfestival.com or 0116 464 5995.


Businesses can choose to host in their own locations or choose from a pre-arranged venue.
