The Gatwick Diamond – the next 15 years
There’s still time to save on your booking for the Key Business Event of the Year. The Early Bird discount deadline has been extended to Friday May 26!
At this, the fifth annual Gatwick Diamond Economic Growth Forum, as we approach the 15th anniversary of the coining of the name “Gatwick Diamond”, and with the Government considering a new place based, and locally led, industrial strategy, it is time for a serious review. We will use the opportunity to look forward at how our economy might develop in the future, with the benefit of an immense amount of information delivered by two reports which benchmark our performance against the rest of the UK.
The snapshots these reports provide will deliver deep understanding about the past, present and future of the Gatwick Diamond economy, and how we might influence that future for the better.We will see for the first time some important new research about the state of our regional economy, the opportunities for growth and improvement, and how we might best exploit them.
These inputs will spark much debate about how we can move forward, together, which will be fuelled further by contributions from senior business figures, and local government.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
