County firms back Lancashire Business Day

Four more red rose businesses have signed on to support Lancashire Business Day, which takes place on November 27.

The event - now in its third year - is organised by Lancashire Business View magazine and is a celebration of all things #Lancashireandproud. It is an opportunity for businesses of all descriptions from across the region to network, celebrate their roots, shout about their achievements and get inspired by guests speakers and expert panelists.

Lancashire Business View will also provide an update on its ‘Buy it in Lancashire, bring back a billion’ campaign, which aims to boost the local economy by £1bn by encouraging companies to source locally.

Lancashire Business Day is one of the first events to take place within the brand new, luxury Crow Wood Hotel in Burnley, and guests will also enjoy first class, locally sourced entertainment, food and drinks.

Supporting the venture are Beever and Struthers, Curtis Law Solicitors, PDS Engineering and VEKA UK, who have each signed up as patrons.

Iain Round, partner at Beever and Struthers, said: “We are delighted once again to be a patron of Lancashire Business Day. It’s great to see local businesses coming together, hearing about their issues and what Lancashire means to fellow patrons/sponsors whilst at the same time supporting our local community.”

Lancashire is not only home to the VEKA UK factory, but also to most of our brilliant employees.

“As a growing business, we understand the challenges local businesses face and this is a fantastic platform to promote not only our services but #community #commerce# #trade within the country.”

Kerry Beswick, business development manager, Curtis Law, added: “Having attended the event last year and experienced the quality of the event we felt that we needed be involved at a greater level and use the event as a platform to further promote our corporate and commercial services to the diverse range of businesses Lancashire has to offer.

“We are looking forward to our team of corporate experts being able to assist Lancashire and its businesses expand and develop making our great county ever more successful.”
