Next week’s sell-out Bath Business Conference to offer firms the chance to shape city’s future

September 16, 2022

The future of Bath as a vibrant business centre will go under the spotlight next Tuesday at a special conference in the city.

The sell-out event, which is being staged by the Bath Business Improvement District (BID), will give firms the opportunity to have their say about the city’s future as an innovative hub for business.

The Bath Business Conference aims to bring businesses together to generate ideas, momentum and to start conversations. 

The BID is urging as many businesses as possible to contribute their business brilliance and creative ideas for the future of the city.

The morning event, held at global engineering consultancy Buro Happold’s Bath headquarters, will include a series of interactive panel discussions and stakeholder engagement opportunities as well as a breakout area for networking.

The four panel discussions, which will take place at 9:30am and 11:15am – with two running simultaneously at each session – will explore the State of the City or Skills & Employment, Developing the Destination or Net Zero.

A waiting list for tickets to the conference has now been set up. Tickets are free for all businesses and include refreshments and a casual networking lunch.

Ahead of the conference, there will also be a ticketed breakfast on the same day starting at 7:30am with keynote speaker Steve Scott, UK executive leader of global professional services company GHD Advisory and an expert in urban development and infrastructure in Europe and the Middle East.

Following the close of the conference at 2pm delegates will be able to take a tour of Bath’s new South Quays business district.

The BID is being supported in staging the conference by Bath & North East Somerset Council, The Bath Initiative, Visit West, Bath Unlimited, St John’s Foundation and Buro Happold.
