We know that an important part of boosting the amount of investment our county’s businesses receives is to raise the profile of Worcestershire as a business location.

Those of you who attended our LEP conference last year will have seen that we launched a new brand to do exactly that.

We are now inviting local businesses to attend our Worcestershire 1000 events to gain more information on how to use and benefit from the new Worcestershire brand and toolkit. The events will also be a great opportunity to hear the upcoming plans for the new profile throughout 2019.

The Worcestershire 1000 events will be taking place on the following dates in February:

Friday, February 1, from 8am to 10.30am at Worcester Warriors, Sixways Stadium;

Wednesday, February 13, from 10.30am to 1pm at The Artrix, Bromsgrove.

Skills show will be one of year's highlights

Worcestershire’s new profile has been made to appeal to people of all ages and showcase the county as an exceptional place to live, work, visit and invest. To help do this, we’ve recently launched a website with more information on the aim and vision of the new profile, and I would encourage you all to see the brand for yourself online by visiting oneworcestershire.com

There’s been a huge amount of interest from the business community in the development and promotion of the brand. We helped to develop the ‘Worcestershire’ profile with the advice of 20 leading high profile businesses and institutions including Worcester Bosch, Gtech, Morgan Motors, Worcester Warriors, University of Worcester, Worcestershire Ambassadors, West Midland Safari Park and Heller Machine Tools.

We’re now looking forward to speaking with many more businesses at our Worcestershire 1000 events to see how we can work together to showcase the county more widely.
