Gwynedd’s main business event will take place between May 11 and 15, and is set to be a highlight of the county’s 2015 business calendar.

Now celebrating its 10th Year, Gwynedd Business Week will showcase and promote local business successes and will offer a great opportunity for all kinds of local businesses across the region to come together to network and exchange ideas.


Councillor Mandy Williams-Davies, Gwynedd Council Economy Cabinet Member said: “Over the years, the Gwynedd Business Week has become a major event for companies across the county.


“We are looking forward to this special event, as well as other business related events during the week, which is a chance to celebrate the achievements of the Gwynedd business community and to look forwards to future opportunities.


“I would urge anyone who is interested in business matters and the local economy to join us for these prestigious events.”


The week will be based around a programme of various events to be held across Gwynedd in venues including Portmeirion, Bangor, Porthmadog, Dolgellau and Caernarfon. Established or new start-up businesses will be welcomed at each event.


The Business Breakfast Launch Event will be held at The Management Centre, Bangor University on Monday, May 11, where there will be an opportunity to network and enjoy a keynote speech from Iwan Trefor Jones who will be discussing the vision and priorities of the North Wales Economic Ambition Board over breakfast.


The highlight of the week will be the Gwynedd Business Week Gala Dinner which will be held on Thursday, May 14, at The Management Centre, Bangor. Bangor University is proud to sponsor the Gala Dinner again this year, and strives to emphasise their key role in the county’s economic development through their Research and Enterprise Office.

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.
