York Business Week is back for its tenth year with a week-long programme of free virtual events.
For 2020, the week has an overarching theme of ‘Build Back Better’ with events that bring together business and industry leaders to look at economic recovery across York’s key sector.
The focus will be to meet current challenges with growth, creativity and innovation. York Business Week will take place from Monday, 9 November to Friday, 13 November. The week will take place entirely virtually.
York Business Week is organised by Make It York and hosted in conjunction with City of York Council, the University of York, the York BID, York St John University, and many more. A full list of hosts and principal partners can be found on the York Business Week website.
This year, all events during York Business Week are completely free to make the week as accessible as possible to all businesses.
Events will include online seminars, workshops, networking opportunities and the city’s first virtual York Business Conference – all from the comfort of your own home, office or working space.
Greg Dyke, chair of Make It York, said: “Many businesses have faced overwhelming challenges in recent months, across all aspects of their operations.
“It is important now, in this time of economic recovery, that we look forward as a city, showcase our collective strengths and be ambitious about how we drive growth for the future.
“York Business Week is an important annual event in the city’s business calendar which reminds us of our city’s strengths and supports our businesses to build back better.’
