BUSINESS events are a real boost for the economy; from high-profile regional, national and international events to creating opportunities for businesses to network with each other, to develop new supply chains, and for new start-ups to learn from professional business mentoring experts to help them get their idea off the ground.
Torbay Development Agency stages business-to-business events throughout the year, ranging from the regular and popular first and second Friday events held at the innovation centres, quarterly employers' events to raise skills, to big annual events like the next month's Torbay Hi Tech Forum Annual event — MTI '13.
The TDA's new website has a live updated events listings facility, which lists business to business events taking place in and around Torbay that can help businesses gain valuable information, new skills or just offer a networking opportunity for meeting prospective new clients and discussing better ways of working.
Visit www.torbaydevelopmentagency.co.uk for details.
The TDA events listing facility is available for other not-for-profit organisations to promote events on, as long as the event is beneficial to helping businesses in Torbay learn new skills or take up new opportunities.
Torbay Council and the TDA aim to strengthen our business community by forging links with the various groups and sectors of businesses operating in Torbay.
Alongside the Chambers of Commerce and the Federation of Small Businesses, there is the Hi Tech Forum, the Manufacturers Forum and the Torbay Business Forum, which aims to be an umbrella organisation bringing together representatives from different business backgrounds and organisations to share a voice in Torbay.
