Flintshire’s in Business

Published: 11/04/2017

Flintshire County Council’s flagship business event has a new look – Flintshire in Business was launched at a Business Innovation Breakfast held recently. The Mersey Dee Alliance meeting was the perfect venue to introduce the new programme of events for 2017 – changing from a week of events, to a programme of events scheduled throughout the year. Included in the line-up are events covering social media and online presence, finance, business growth and opportunities for promoting local opportunities to school and college students. The ever popular Flintshire Business Awards will still take place at Soughton Hall on 20 October. Flintshire County Council Chief Officer for Community and Enterprise, Clare Budden, said: “Flintshire Business Week has grown from strength to strength during the past 10 years and has welcomed over 23,000 delegates during that time. We felt that this was now an opportunity to develop the programme and introduce events throughout the year to encourage even more businesses to take part.” President of Flintshire in Business, Lord Barry Jones, said: “This is a magnificent initiative which will only further promote the brilliant economy of North East Wales. The marvellous thing is that there is a cross border connection of great importance and the County, with membership of the Mersey Dee Alliance, is showing considerable wisdom. We are the most effective manufacturing location in Britain and the only cross border economy in Britain – our manufacturing capability is staggering.”
