The East Suffolk Business Festival will take centre stage with a virtual showcase of planned investments in the district, business support and examples of how local businesses have adapted to recent challenges.

Starting on Monday, November 9, the council’s Economic Development team will share information on various projects which aim to secure economic growth, explore the support that is available to help businesses thrive and share examples of how East Suffolk businesses have survived six months of unprecedented trading conditions.

Craig Rivett, deputy leader and cabinet member for economic development, said: “This has been a year like no other and our businesses have shown incredible strength and flexibility when faced with lockdown and the following coronavirus restrictions.

“We are unable to hold our Business Festival in person and instead, we will be celebrating the diversity of the local economy and raising the profile of the East Suffolk business community.”

The five-day festival will take place online at eastsuffolkmeansbusiness.co.uk and on social media.
