St Albans Business Festival provides a timely opportunity for businesses to discuss the future

 

With the UK political parties in turmoil, a volatile stock market and huge levels of uncertainty in the country the forthcoming St Albans Business Festival will be an opportunity for local businesses to get together and discuss their futures in the world post Brexit.

 

St Albans had one of the highest turnouts in the referendum in the country with the vast majority voting to Remain. Local businesses will get the opportunity to quiz the Secretary of State for Business & innovation,  Sajid Javid MP on what happens now at the festival finale lunch on Friday 8th July at Sopwell House Hotel.  The Business Minister, Mr Javid has stated in the press that there is no need to panic following the vote to leave but he can expect to be asked some tough questions when he addresses businesses from across the district.

 

The Business Festival runs from 4th to 8th July and is being organised by Lisa Bates from the Chamber who says, “The future for the country as a whole is uncertain so now more than ever is the time for local businesses to come together to discuss the challenges and where opportunities may lie and we want to continue to help our business community whatever the prevailing business conditions.”

 

Lisa went on to say “The Business Festival will include numerous networking opportunities and opens with the Herts Business Expo at the Alban Arena. A new addition this year is a collaboration with St Albans Fashion Week. We are expecting hundreds of representatives from all areas of business to attend events during the week just as they did last year.”
