FSB to feature at Greater Lincolnshire LEP Conference


The LEP conference remains as one of the most important dates in the Greater Lincolnshire business calendar.

The conference will be staged at the Lincolnshire Showground on Friday 12 July and will still include the same essential mix of keynote speakers, expert panel discussions and networking opportunities. As the LEP continues to shape Greater Lincolnshire's Local Industrial Strategy, the theme of this year's conference is 'Lincolnshire's Evolving Opportunities'. Stand by for some fantastic panels, speakers and discussions, as well as an exhibition showcasing innovative and digital technology for future-proofing your business. Attracting around 400 delegates every year, the conference is the Greater Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership's flagship public-facing business engagement event. 

FSB representatives will be on hand at our Exhibition Stand in the main hall. They will be there to welcome potential new FSB Members and to chat with existing Members to ensure that they are making the most of their membership. The conference is free to attend but booking in advance via Eventbrite is required. 

Ursula Lidbetter MBE, Chair of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP said. “We have some fantastic panellists and speakers this year. Our annual conference continues to evolve and grow and it has now become an essential date in the diary of Greater Lincolnshire’s business and public sector leaders.
