Following the floods at the start of this year the Government provided funds to local authorities in affected areas in order that they might assist affected businesses in their recovery. Having addressed some of the issues faced by those directly affected by the floods (ie flooded businesses and businesses located on roads which were flooded or closed as a result of flooding) Worcester City Council are now rolling out initiatives to support businesses within the BID area which were indirectly affected by the floods.
In conjunction with Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce they are able to offer businesses which are trading b2b the opportunity to have a free stand at the Chamber Expo which takes place at The Three Counties Showground on September 18 2014. The stands, which would normally cost £350, will be paid for by Worcester City Council. (The Chamber of Commerce have generously offered the stands at a reduced cost to the council for this offer). NB: any other requirements such as electricity point, tablecloth etc will need to be paid for by the business.
Places are limited and so stands will be offered on a first come first served basis. For a booking form contact the City Council’s Economic Development Team on 01905 722554 or email email@example.com
The closing date for receipt by the Chamber of Commerce of completed applications is Friday 22 August.
This offer is not available to businesses which have previously received a flood related grant, and is only for those businesses trading business to business. There will be further initiatives aimed at supporting retail businesses.
Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce Business Expo on Thursday 18th September from 8am to 3pm at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern.
One of the Chamber’s most popular events, is a great opportunity for businesses to:
