Forest Enterprise Fair 2018

Showcase Forest of Dean EntrepreneursThis will be the fifth Forest Enterprise Fair run by the Forest of Dean Entrepreneurs and is the the only regular business-to-business event in the Forest of Dean, including small and start-up businesses. The Forest Enterprise Fair 2018 will be on Wednesday, 18th April from 10.00am – 4.00pm.

This year we have been fortunate in gaining the use of the Conference space and additional facilities at Vantage Point Business Village, Mitcheldean. This is also the site of the new Tier 2 Growth Hub coming to the Forest of Dean later this year. As well as opportunities for promoting your business and gathering a range of technical advice, we will be running three seminars at this FREE event.

The three seminars are free to attend and cover the following subjects:

10.00 am   10 Steps to Social Media Success – Luan Wise

12.30 pm   Start and Grow Enterprise – Louisa Clark

2.30 pm   Marketing Made Simple – ALS Marketing

With more than 20 stands local businesses and project sponsors will be offering a range of services and advice. There will be space to sit and enjoy refreshments from the Viewpoint Restaurant and network with other businesses.
