A series of events are set to take place over the coming weeks as part of the Derbyshire Festival of Business, designed to boost the country’s post-Covid recovery.

As part of the festival, the D2N2 Growth Hub is delivering two free conferences to businesses, which will cover marketing trends and information on the support it offers.

The first is the Digital Marketing Conference and Exhibition on Wednesday 9 March between 7.45am and 3.15pm at the Palace Hotel, in Buxton, which is already fully booked.

The second will take place on Wednesday 6 April, between 8.30am and 1.15pm, at Derby Museums’ the Museum of Making, in Derby.

The event will showcase the support that the D2N2 Growth Hub has provided to local businesses, as well as the impact this has had overall.

The exhibitions element of the Derbyshire Festival of Business are being delivered in partnership with East Midlands Chamber and the University of Derby.

Dr Peter Dewhurst, commercial director at the University of Derby, said: “This festival is an opportunity to showcase what our county has to offer, to identify current and future talent and to create opportunities for collaboration between businesses, the university, policy-makers and advisory organisations, which will help us build a strong, resilient and inclusive economy as we recover from the impact and challenges of the pandemic.”

Councillor Steve Hassall, Derby City Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, decarbonisation, strategic planning and transportation, said: “The Derbyshire Festival of Business is a great opportunity for SME businesses in the local area to find new ways to promote their business.

“The D2N2 Growth Hub is a vital asset that local business continues to rely on for expansion and it’s great to see they are striving to help even more organisations. We’re excited to see what their plans are for the future.”
