Hundreds due to join the celebration of business success at GrowthFest

Local businesses are gearing up to take the spotlight at GrowthFest, a showcase of success, growth and outstanding talent that has attracted 650 bookings from the private and public sector across the region.

Taking place on 20th September at the Royal Cornwall Showground, this celebratory event will bring together the movers and shakers from the local business community to celebrate the success of the Growth Hub project which has supported over 1,800 businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly since its launch in 2016.

The event will be delivered in partnership with the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership and, as well as interactive exhibits from local businesses, there will be lightening talks and seminars on key business issues and a keynote speech from Jo Fairley – co-founder of Green & Black’s organic chocolate.

Local business will be showcasing their products and services including lino printing, tipi hire, rowing boats, frozen custard, heating systems, 3D scanning, water sports, board games, gin, smart tech and furniture making to name but a few!

The LEP will also launch the exciting Cornwall Work and Health Beacon Project, the first of its kind in the UK.  This is championed by Sarah Newton, Minister for Work Health and Disability, and aims to widen the pool of talent and experience available to employers, creating opportunities for local people and helping to tackle skills shortages.
