Celebrations begin for 10th Flintshire Business Week

Published: 19/05/2016

Flintshire County Council’s flagship business event, Flintshire Business Week, is celebrating its 10th anniversary and the festivities will begin on Monday 6 June when this year’s event is launched at Soughton Hall in Northop. Flintshire Business Week has moved to September and will take place 27 to 30 September, with the Flintshire Business Awards 2016 following on Friday, 21 October. The business week, in association with AGS Security Systems and Westbridge Furniture Designs, is one of the most important events of its kind in the region, regularly attracting over 2,000 businesses. It supports the business community in the county and, increasingly, the wider region, to promote their companies, to develop trading opportunities and to raise the profile of the area as a place to invest. Councillor Derek Butler, Cabinet Member for Economic Development said: “Flintshire Business Week has grown from strength to strength over the past 10 years and has welcomed over 23,000 delegates during that time. The team has delivered more than 320 events and it is extremely important for us that we put our businesses of all sizes on the map. I would like to thank our headline sponsors AGS Security Systems - sponsors of the Business Awards and Westbridge Furniture Designs – sponsors of the Business Exhibition. Without their support, these events would not have grown into the prestigious occasions they are today. “I must also say that we are very fortunate to have Flintshire’s business ambassador, Rt. Hon. Lord Barry Jones, as our president. “I’d like to encourage everyone to come along to this year’s events in September. To book a place at the launch event, which takes place at 5.30pm on Monday 6 June at Soughton Hall, please go to our Eventbrite webpage: For sponsorship opportunities, to book a stand, and for further details about all the events taking place during Business Week, contact Flintshire’s Business Development Team on 01352 703219.
