The highlight of the Gwynedd business calendar is approaching with a host of events being organised to celebrate the achievements of companies from across the county.

The Gwynedd Business Week 2019, which will be held between 20 and 24 May, will provide an opportunity to showcase and promote local business successes as well as providing a great chance for companies to come together to network and exchange ideas for the future.

Councillor Gareth Thomas, Gwynedd Council Cabinet Member for Economic Development said:

“The Gwynedd Business Week has developed into a major event for companies across the county. As part of the week, events will be held across the county that will be a chance to celebrate the achievements of the Gwynedd business community as well as opportunities for collaboration and promoting entrepreneurship.

“Throughout the week, events and workshops that will showcase the innovative work being carried out by Gwynedd companies will be held. We would urge anyone who is interested in business matters, entrepreneurship and the state of the local economy to join us for these events.”

The Business Breakfast Launch Event will be held at the new Welsh Highland Railway Station, Caernarfon on Monday, 20 May where there will be an opportunity to network with representatives from the private and public sector.

The highlight of the week will be the Gwynedd Business Week Gala Dinner which will be held on Thursday, 23 May at The Management Centre, Bangor. The event will include a business awards ceremony and, as always, the event will be a chance for business leaders from all over Gwynedd to meet like-minded people, to share ideas and experiences.

During the Dinner, awards will be presented to the Gwynedd Business Person of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Tourism Business of the Year, Business Innovation Award and the Gwynedd branch of the Federation of Small Businesses will present an award to the Young Entrepreneur that has successfully established a business in the current year and has positively contributed to the economy of Gwynedd.
