Fife Business Week 2017 – Inspiring and Supporting Fife’s Businesses

FIFE Business Week 2017 is set to run this year from 6th to 10th November. In a week packed full of events aimed at inspiring and supporting Fife’s business community, it will also provide opportunities for Fife’s businesses to come together to network and exchange ideas.

Now in its eighth year, Fife’s main business event offers a broad range of seminars and workshops, covering important issues for the local economy and is once again set to be a major highlight of the Kingdom’s business calendar.

Launching this year’s Fife Business Week at Raytheon UK’s Glenrothes manufacturing facility, Managing Director, Stephen Doran and Chair of the Fife Economy Partnership knows well the importance and value of these events to the local business community.

He said: “Fife Business Week is a great showcase to promote local business and their success.  It offers the opportunity for every company in Fife to come along, hear from industry experts whilst making new contacts and exchanging ideas.

“Fife is very much open for business and there is so much support available to help a business invest, grow and thrive. The region is already home to some of the UK’s highest performing small businesses, and we are proud that we can offer businesses high calibre, highly skilled staff, excellent infrastructure links and centres of excellence in many sectors.

“Fife Business Week is aimed at supporting economic growth, is designed to inspire businesses to grow, and to encourage them to join us on our journey to make Fife the best place to do business.”

During Fife Business Week, a Fife Council Meet the Buyer event will also be scheduled to connect businesses with buyers and decision makers to discuss how to access business with public sector agencies and prime private sector contractors, to highlight upcoming opportunities.

The theme for this year’s programme of events is Inspiring and Supporting Fife’s Businesses, aligned to Fife Economic Partnership’s objectives. The week of action will focus on key issues that are impacting on Fife entrepreneurs, business start-ups and employers with fresh insights into workforce development, finance and strategy and digital connectivity.
