The Grand Depart business festival in Sheffield will have a packed schedule which includes the ‘Conference for Growth’ on July 3 organised by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce.

The event, in the English Institute of Sport from July 2-4, will also feature an Engineering Design event to be delivered by hi-tech Sheffield company Performance Engineering Solution.

Regional innovation will then come under the spotlight with a trade exhibition organised by Marketing Sheffield.

Mark Robson, regional director of UKTI, is urging the local business community to embrace and support the Sheffield leg of the business festival.

He said: “The Grand Depart provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase the innovation, entrepreneurial spirit and leadership that has put local companies at the forefront of the global race. We’re determined to deliver a flagship business spectacle befitting the arrival of the world’s largest annual sporting event.

“Many local companies already have plans in place to bring clients or potential customers over for the race, and there will be unique opportunities to network.”
