Burton's revamp celebrated as part of Chamber campaign

Burton town centre’s revamp will be one of several topics discussed as part of a five-week, virtual Chamber business campaign taking place in June.


Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce (GBCC) has announced that it will be a hosting a campaign celebrating the business communities that are a part of the Chamber group.

The Festival of Business campaign is being held in lieu of in–person exhibitions being unable to be hosted by the Chamber due to coronavirus restrictions.

As part of the festival, members of the Chambers will be encouraged to attend a number of webinars and virtual networking events being hosted as part of the campaign. 

Events will focus on showcasing the benefits of doing business with members of the Chambers and key issues facing member businesses. 

The first week of the campaign, starting from 1 June, will focus on Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield and Tamworth Chambers.

Solihull Chamber will be the focus of the second week of the campaign, Burton and Chase Chambers in the third week and Greater Birmingham Commonwealth Chamber and Greater Birmingham Transatlantic Chamber will be the focus of the fourth week of the campaign.

During that week, the Chamber will host its annual Global Trade Conference, taking place on 23 June.

Future Faces Chamber and the Asian Business Chamber of Commerce will host a number of fringe events during the campaign.

Chris Plant, divisional director for Burton Chamber, said:

“Before the pandemic, Uttoxeter Racecourse in June would be filled with businesses of all shapes and sizes, and thousands of delegates at our hugely popular Let’s Do Business Expo.

“We unfortunately have been able to stage these events due to the health crisis, but are really keen to celebrate all the wonderful businesses that make up our business communities in Burton.

“The Festival of Business will really shine a light on all the developments in the area, and be an excellent chance for our members to engage and connect.”
