Annual Economic Conference 2018


Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce

Welcome Following on from a hugely successful Annual Conference in November 2017, my team and I are looking forward to, once again, delivering an event packed with prestigious and engaging key-note speakers and stimulating panel sessions. The Chamber's conference is the highlight of the business events calendar in our region. We bring together business & civic leaders, MP's, local councillors and a wealth of Chamber members to discuss the issues that matter most to business, as well as looking to the future and the opportunities we have for sustainable business growth. We call it Business Togetherness.

Snow is best known as the longest running presenter of Channel 4 News, which he has presented since 1989.
