Only two weeks left to submit events for region's largest business showcase

Applications to run an event in Leicester Business Festival (LBF) need to be submitted by 9 September. Just two weeks away. LBF is in its eighth year and will take place from 7-18 November 2022. Over the last seven years there’s been over 41,000 attendees from all over the country.

Large or small businesses from all sectors get involved with the two-week festival which incorporates free business events varying in size, structure and type. The deadline is looming for businesses to submit their applications so they can host an event at the festival.

In person events are proving popular in the line-up already showing that businesses value this dedicated moment in the calendar for face to face networking, workshops and seminars. There’s a variety of venues partnering with the festival which offer either free or discounted space for businesses to host their event. Festival events can also be hosted online.

The application form is quick to complete and available on the Leicester Business Festival website:

Rupinder Drew, Business Enterprise Manager at Leicester College and a director of Leicester Business Festival Community Interest Company (CiC) said:

“The festival is a one-off opportunity regionally. By hosting an event you can showcase and share insights, experiences and intel to a diverse audience. Your event could be a demonstration, tour or even a round table debate. As long as it meets a set criteria and adds value or benefit to the people who attend.

“This is the golden opportunity of the year for businesses. LBF continues to create exciting new business opportunities, brand exposure, growth and confidence. The benefits are endless for businesses in Leicester and Leicestershire.”

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