Kirklees firms have been invited to a West Yorkshire-wide business networking event.
The event has been organised by Bradford Chamber of Commerce in response to a nationwide Be Well Connected membership campaign initiated by the British Chambers of Commerce. It takes place from noon to 2pm on September 19 at the Provident Stadium, Bradford.
Known as #WellConnected Yorkshire, the use of the hash tag in the title refers to social media site Twitter, which the British Chamber campaign is using as its main method of communicating its Be Well Connected message.
Darren Precious, sales and marketing manager at Bradford Chamber, said: “Organisations from Leeds, Wakefield, Halifax and Huddersfield have all been invited to attend #WellConnected Yorkshire.
“The Mid Yorkshire chamber has been busy encouraging businesses from its patch to come along and say hello to their neighbours from over the border and I am keen to do the same.”
But he added: “You don’t have to be a chamber member to attend. Every company of every size is invited in order to increase their business and play a part in growing the region's economy.
“As a chamber, we hope that all those who attend discover new opportunities for working together and increasing sustainable growth.
“We are particularly keen on the social media aspect of #WellConnected Yorkshire. In addition to the event, we provide lots of opportunities via the chamber’s online networks to forge new relationships and we would encourage businesses to take advantage.”
