Peak District & Derbyshire Towns & Business Forum On-line

Date: Thu 04 Jun

Venue(s): Webinar

How do we build a sustainable recovery for the visitor economy in the Peak District & Derbyshire?

The short answer is by working together. For the longer answer, join us for the Towns & Business Forum Online.

We have local, national, and international speakers who will share their expertise and join in the discussions. Bira CEO, Andrew Goodacre will be joining the conversation, speaking on Health & Safety and the retail landscape.

We have guidance and tools to support your business and trading environment to survive this time of change and build a vibrant ‘new normal’ together. We don’t have all the answers, so bring us your ideas, suggestions and news too.
