Forest of Dean Enterprise Fair 2014

Forest of Dean Entrepreneurs Enterprise Fair 2013The Second Annual Forest of Dean Enterprise Fair takes place on 19th November 2014.

It is a celebration of enterprise and business in the Forest of Dean being held at the Forest Hills Golf Club, near Coleford.

There is no cost to attend.

Last year some people came and spent all day at the Fair. Others popped in for just 10 minutes as they were passing. So whatever time you have, you’ll be sure of a warm welcome and the opportunity to network, learn or just have fun.

Forest of Dean Enterprise Fair 2014 Aims

This Fair is run by local people to celebrate anyone in or thinking about setting up their own business in the Forest and an opportunity for all Forest businesses to come together. Its four specific aims are:

  • To promote the spirit of enterprise locally.
  • To create new connections within the business community.
  • To provide opportunities to learn and develop new business skills.
  • To showcase new businesses & the work of the Forest of Dean Entrepreneurs project.

Which is why there will be 20 stands in the exhibition and showcase space from established companies to very recent and 3 year-old start-ups; a networking café area to meet, chat and share ideas and business or just to pause; and as last year the seminar room with a packed programme of free learning and contacts.
