Castle Point Business Forum

Castle Point Business Forum Logo

A key event in the local business calendar is the Castle Point Business Forum which is organised by the Regeneration Team.  The event is a local platform where our business community and the Council can discuss the issues that matter to them and find new and exciting ways to make the Borough even more successful.  Typically held annually, our popular forum also provides an ideal networking opportunity as well as an opportunity to hear about timely and relevant topics of local business interest.

The annual Business Forum was hosted virtually for the first time and encouraged local business to consider the future of their business post Covid-19.  As part of this, businesses heard about the comprehensive range of business support available during these challenging times.

Presentations were received from an interesting and informative line up of presenters. The presentations have been published on the Council YouTube channel: Castle Point Business Forum Virtual Event
