A major event to help businesses build better working relationships across the region is being held in Rotherham.

Magna Science and Adventure Centre, housed in the former Templeborough steelworks, will host South Yorkshire in Business and will feature up to 100 exhibitors, with networking opportunities and guest speakers sharing their expertise on a range of topics.

Details have just been released about the event, which is due to be held on Thursday, September 29, from 10am to 3pm.

It is being supported by the three chambers of commerce covering Barnsley and Rotherham, Sheffield and Doncaster and a members-only networking breakfast will also take place at 8am.

John Silker, chief executive of Magna, urged representatives of businesses from across the region to attend the event.

He said: “We’re delighted to have the support of the region’s chambers and are looking forward to welcoming businesses from across South Yorkshire to make important contacts, learn from our guest speakers, and build relationships with each other.”

Organisers hope the event will build on the success of the Inspiring Yorkshire Business and Get Up to Speed events.

Held at Magna in February, the Inspiring Yorkshire event was attended by more than 100 businesses, while the Get Up to Speed events offered a chance to see some of the UK’s most exciting engineering inventions.

The South Yorkshire in Business event will be held in the venue’s Big Hall and speaker details will be announced soon.

Bookings are now being taken for exhibition stands and interested businesses can contact the Magna events team on 01709 723118 or visit www.visitmagna.co.uk

Chamber members will receive a 25 per cent discount.

The South Yorkshire in Business event will take place a fortnight before the venue hosts the annual Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards.

Magna hosts regular corporate events for brands including Mercedes, Royal Mail, Kia Motors and HSBC.
