The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce held its latest Chamber Means Business event at Ettington Chase in Stratford-upon-Avon.
The event heard from Coventry Live and Coventry Telegraph editor Keith Perry on the evolution of the media and how his organisation reaches a larger audience now than at any other time over the past 40 years.
Ivvet Modinou, director of the British Science Festival, told the gathered businesses that the festival was coming to the region for the first time in its 188-year history from September 10 to 13. This will be followed by a Family Day, hosted at the University of Warwick, on Saturday 14th September.
That was after Mandy Walker, of Warwickshire County Council, and Chris Lawes, of Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council, had given an overview of the exciting Transforming Nuneaton plans.
Partners involved in the project want to reimagine the town centre as a multi-use hub for transport, health, leisure, education, culture and retail.
Chris Nagle, events and marketing manager at the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We’ve had great feedback on our latest Chamber Means Business event.
“We had four great speakers who all spoke on fascinating subjects that our audience found extremely informative.
“Keith gave us an incredible insight into the way the media world continues to change and how they have had to stay one step ahead of that, while Ivvet was delighted to tell local businesses about the British Science Festival coming to the region.
“The Transforming Nuneaton project could have a major positive impact on our region and it is a relevant topic to companies right across Coventry and Warwickshire.”
