Wakefield Business Conference is focusing on Growth as its key theme for this year’s conference with a move to one of the Districts best kept secret locations, South Kirkby's Production Park.
Internationally recognised as a hub for live events, Production Park features full size rehearsal venues and training academy for the performing arts, but significantly it is the centre of Langthwaite Business Park which houses more than 150 diverse businesses.
Always a popular venue for industry visits Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce has chosen the Studio Two location to reflect its own ambition to be the major conductor for business leaders aiming to boost their enterprises by hearing from keynote speakers all sharing their knowledge and expertise.
Speakers already booked include the Director General of British Chambers of Commerce, Dr Adam Marshall and Mark Prince, business growth expert with 30 years of global corporate leadership and author of business book ‘Leading the Crusade’.
Helping to launch Wakefield Business Week on Tuesday June 13, Wakefield Business Conference has chosen the venue to offer the best of both worlds to sponsors, exhibitors and visitors. Mid Yorkshire Chamber has organised a series of seminars and events all targeting different elements of growth throughout the day closing at 3.00pm.
Mid Yorkshire Chamber wants to make the process of booking, visiting and organizing the day as easy as possible for all exhibitors, attendees and speakers and is creating a dedicated website www.wakefieldbusinessconference.co.uk. Until that goes live exhibitors can book by contacting Sam Melton firstname.lastname@example.org or tel 01484 483679.

Gareth Hunt, director for Mid Yorkshire Chamber in Wakefield said: “Wakefield Business Conference is committed to supporting ambitious growing businesses. For 2017 we wanted a different approach and have opted for an iconic venue where they can hear from keynote speakers who will share their knowledge and experience. At the same time they can meet peers who will share best practice. Having the day to focus on growth and meet potential partners will enable them to return to their businesses refreshed to implement”.
