The Black Country Business Festival, which runs from May 13th to 24th, is an annual, two-week festival featuring hundreds of free events to help people grow their businesses and raise the region’s profile.

Sandwell highlights include:

Alan Taylor, Chair of Sandwell Business Ambassadors, commented: “Sandwell Business Ambassadors will be both hosting and attending a wide range of seminars, workshops and meetings; The Black Country Business Festival presents a great opportunity for SMEs to meet other members of the local business community, share best practice and collaborate, to help the whole region grow. Over the next two years, the ambassadors will be championing local businesses by campaigning for more local procurement opportunities to go to local businesses, and encouraging private businesses to develop their local supply chain.”
