Wakefield Business Week, 1 - 5 October 2018
The fifth annual Wakefield Business Week celebrates the district’s reputation as one of the northern region’s thriving business and commercial hubs, with 15 separate events across five days.
Sponsored by OE Electrics and Aston Barclay, Wakefield Business Week showcases the district’s success in sectors such as creative and digital, food and drink, logistics and automation, and skills and education.
The week will launch at Unity Hall, Wakefield, where Council Leader Peter Box CBE and Council Chief Executive Merran McRae will discuss our new Economic Strategy and take part in a panel discussion.
