FSB Members and staff hot footed down to the impressive Amex Stadium in Brighton to receive Presentations from both the C2C LEP and Gatwick Airport.
This was the event to attend with decision makers from Surrey County Council, The Sussex Innovation Centre and Gatwick Airport.
Every delegate was presented with a copy of the Gatwick 360 Strategy Plan upon arrival for reference purposes during this ground breaking event. Following an introduction from Tim Wates (C2C LEP Chairman) the C2C LEP Economic Plan was launched by Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive.
Lively debate from the audience followed. Guy Stephenson, Chief Commercial Officer of Gatwick Airport presented next and made what for FSB was a profound statement “small businesses in the surrounding areas of Gatwick are key to our Airports success and we want to in future support them in every way to maintain our own growth”.
FSB will hold Gatwick to this statement!
