A business conference is returning to Harrogate for its 11th year tomorrow (Thursday 7th October).

Brand Yorkshire’s annual conference will be held at Pavilions of Harrogate following a two-year absence due to covid.

Organised by Managing Directors Mona and Richard Norman, the event allows business delegates to meet, network and take away advice from a variety of guest speakers.

Mona told Your Harrogate:

“The whole region is celebrating as we’ve all suffered from covid. We were cancelled three times due to covid so this means a lot.

“It’s our 11th year here with the Pavilions and we’ve had some amazing support from local businesses, press and Harrogate has taken us under their wings.”

Stallholders set up ahead of Brand Yorkshire’s conference at Pavilions of Harrogate.

The conference will have over 80 stallholders and currently has more than 1,000 business delegates signed up to attend.

Attendees will be able to meet face-to-face after 18 months of Zoom calls – an aspect of modern meetings that Mona isn’t entirely fond of.

She added:

“Personally I wasn’t a big fan of Zoom and still believe in the human aspect of meeting face-to-face.

“It feels more natural, you get more done and the relationship you build is more organic.”

The conference will run at Pavilions of Harrogate from 8:30am until 4:30pm on Thursday 7th October 2021.
