Leicester Business Festival (LBF) is running from 8 to 18 November and has an incredible 90 events. Nearly all events are free to attend, but it is vital that tickets are booked in advance.
The LBF is in its seventh year and is a staple in the local business community’s calendar.
This year, there are around 90 events taking place over the fortnight, covering a wide range of topics from utilising Instagram for your business, sports entrepreneurship, sustainability and going net zero.
The events are run by local businesses to help local businesses. The aim of LBF is to share knowledge and best practice, as well as promoting growth and collaboration.
Headline partner, De Montfort University, are hosting a whopping 18 events, including:
Leicester Graduate City, Going Net Zero and Future Proofing Leicester’s Fashion Industry.
East Midlands Chamber are also running multiple events, one of which highlights the importance of digital workplace strategy and how to implement this with other business planning tools.
Rob Ricketts, Regional Business Development Manager at De Montfort University said:
“It is brilliant that the business community has continued their support of LBF, despite the difficulties faced over the last 18 months. I encourage everyone to book their tickets as soon as possible to secure their place at these incredible events – many of the events have limited numbers so be sure to sign up quickly!”
LBF is headline partnered by De Montfort University. Other partners include East Midlands Chamber and Leicester City Council.
