Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa

Local businesses in Sefton are invited to enjoy the Summer Economic Forum & Marketplace. 

The event is organised by InvestSefton and takes place on Thursday 6th June 2024 at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa.

The forum will provide a platform for topical and interesting presentations: 

  •       Christian Spence – Economist, will provide an insightful economic update.
  •       The Big 3! The Horizons Project (UKSPF) has been launched in collaboration with the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, to offer bespoke support for SMEs to increase productivity, access knowledge transfer workshops and adopt emerging technologies.

Fiona McGregor, owner of One Media Solutions Ltd, a digital marketing agency based in Southport, will chair the forum.

As ever, the forum will be a relaxed and informal event, with opportunities to network with other Sefton businesses and support providers from across the Liverpool City Region.

Afterwards, delegates can browse the Business Marketplace – meet the teams from the universities as well as meet other funded providers who can provide support to your businesses – there will be over twenty providers in the marketplace.

Who should attend?

Any business, any size, any sector located in Sefton.
