THE FEDERATION OF SMALL BUSINESSES
The Devon Region of the FSB was delighted to hear the news that they had secured the 2017 National Conference. It means the focus will be on Devon during the March 2017 (the conference starts on the 23rd and finishes on the 25th). We will be welcoming FSB members from all over the country to our beautiful County. The 2017 National Conference will be held at the Riviera Centre in Torquay, a stunning centre which has been recently refurbished. The Centre Manager Nicky says she is delighted to be working with the FSB and is looking forward to the event.
Obviously the plans for 2017 conference are in their infancy, but we do know that there will be the opportunity for the Region to influence the conference. So we hope that we will have input into the talks and the style of this conference.
The Devon Region hopes that the conference will offer the opportunity to showcase our members work and what this Region offers. With this in mind we hope to also have an influence on the type of stands in the exhibition area. One idea has been for a beauty area so that our members who work in that industry may be able to gain from the event. In addition, we are renowned for our food, drink and hospitality. We are looking forward to offering to members and maybe even members of the public the opportunity of tasting our many specialities in a dedicated area of the 2017 National Conference.
If you are interested in being part of the National Conference (either with a Food or Drink stand or in the beauty area) please contact the FSB regional Office 01803 321251.
