Stratford Business Conference 2013
A full room at SBC 2013

A huge thank you to every one who attended and participated in Stratford Business Conference 2013 at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon on Friday the 12th April. The opportunity to talk with and listen to local businesses dealing with challenging economic conditions and a changing demographic profile in the Stratford-on-Avon District, has been useful. We hope that if you attended the Conference you found it useful and came away better informed about some of the challenges that lie ahead.

The District Council is committed to working with businesses, through it's Business & Enterprise Strategy. Stratford-on-Avon District Council in conjunction with Stratford Vision delivered the conference to allow businesses in the Stratford District and the Public Sector to come together in a way that has identified more of the issues that affect barriers to growth. Local businesses and the Public Sector contributed towards the discussions and debate thoughout the morning.
