Essex County Council announces its first High Street Business Summit to take place in November

As part of the work that Essex County Council (ECC) is doing to help level up the economy following the pandemic, businesses across the county and beyond are being encouraged to attend the ECC High Street Business Summit, which is taking place at Hylands House, Chelmsford, on 24 November from 10am-4pm. This is a key opportunity for businesses to share experience, and gain valuable knowledge from an expert panel of speakers.

The summit is the first of its kind for ECC and is set to be a pivotal event for businesses, covering a wide range of topics aimed at helping our High Streets and town centres recover and build back better, in the wake of the pandemic.

In addition to a conference with a range of different speakers, there will also be breakout sessions, panel discussions and the chance to network. There will also be an option to view the event remotely for those who are unable to attend in person.

Attendees will include a variety of industry experts, including retailers, members of the hospitality and leisure sector, private investors, politicians and more, with the summit providing a key opportunity to express concerns and gain insider knowledge from an expert panel of guest speakers, including members of Essex County Council’s cabinet and senior officers.

Cllr Lesley Wagland, Cabinet Member for Economic Renewal, Infrastructure and Planning at Essex County Council, commented: “The High Street Business Summit will be instrumental in guiding Essex businesses and promoting growth and ambition. High streets have been hit the hardest during the pandemic, and we want the summit to be an opportunity for our business communities and partners to come together and gain valuable advice on future growth and deliver on our priorities of renewal, ambition and equality.”
