Registrations now open for Worcestershire LEP’s largest annual conference yet

Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership (WLEP) is encouraging local businesses to register at the earliest opportunity for the #WLEP16 Annual Conference.



Over 475 delegates are expected to attend this year’s half-day conference which will open at 7:45am on Friday 4 November 2016 at the Chateau Impney, Droitwich.

The Conference will be professionally hosted by the business author, journalist and ‘Outrageously Optimistic’, Guy Browning, who will be joined by the Rt. Hon Sajid Javid MP, high-profile local businesses, futurist experts and respected guests.

The conference is open to delegates from local businesses of all sectors and sizes and other partners. #WLEP16 is the perfect opportunity to hear first-hand about recent progress, to explore what the future holds for the County’s economy and the priorities for the future to ensure Worcestershire’s long-term prosperity. The event also provides details of the support available for local businesses with organisations on hand to offer advice and guidance to enable everyone to be a part of future growth and the wide-reaching profile of the county.

This year, the conference will feature information zones on various topics of interest with opportunities to meet the experts throughout the morning and during the networking lunch. A few surprises are also in store to ensure a memorable experience.

A limited number of sponsorship and exhibition opportunities are also available with all details and options available on the website with confirmed sponsors ahead of the launch being Hewett Recruitment and Sanctuary Group.

Businesses are being encouraged to register and secure their place at the earliest opportunity with last year’s event being oversubscribed weeks ahead of the event. Registration can take place via the newly-launched Annual Conference website with a link available from

Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, said: “I am looking forward to meeting with such a large business audience at this year’s WLEP Annual Conference.

“We have some fantastic speakers confirmed, as well as industry experts on hand during the event itself, and the focus will be very much on what the future holds for Worcestershire’s economy and priorities for the coming years.”

“I would like to thank our confirmed conference sponsors, Hewett Recruitment and Sanctuary Group and I would encourage any businesses interested in this profiling opportunity to get in touch at the earliest convenience.”

“Last year, the annual conference was fully booked with 2 weeks to spare before registrations closed so I would also urge all businesses to register as soon as possible and we look forward to seeing you at the event.”
