Essex Chambers of Commerce are delighted to present their first
Festival of Business!

The Festival of Business will be held at the picturesque Hylands House on
Wednesday 27 April 2022, from 10.00am until 3.00pm

We’re back! After a two-year absence from major events, we’re kicking things off in style. Join us at Hylands House on Wednesday 27th April 2022 for our first ever Festival of Business. The festival will showcase the incredible variety and resilience of the Essex business landscape.

The pandemic showed us the value of collaboration and connectedness. It propelled initiatives to build a complete and inclusive workspace for all. Now, we’re inviting our community to come together to help shape a future without barriers. We’ll be celebrating the diversity of Essex talent and highlighting support for inclusive workspaces across the county.

The Festival of Business isn’t just about strengthening ties across the Essex business community. It’s about recognising the vital role businesses play in our thriving regional community as well. It will see involvement from a wide range of services from across the county, including South Essex College, Essex Pride, Essex Police, Essex Fire & Rescue, Police Cadets, and many more! 

Radio Essex will be broadcasting some of the event and interviewing speakers and attendees throughout the day.
