BFC 10th Anniversary Dinner

April 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm

BFC 10th Anniversary Dinner

An exciting night for Calderdale Businesses

Our Special Guests


Sir Gary Verity Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire

BBC Look North, Business Correspondent – Spencer Stokes


Business for Calderdale are celebrating ten years of providing opportunities for local businesses to work together, build links and form great relationships so on 18th April, we will be hosting a fun filled evening starting with a drinks reception from 7pm to 7.30pm.  
We will take a look back over the past ten years and highlight some of the amazing work which has happened locally and BBC’s Spencer Stokes will be speaking to a few previous winners of the Halifax Courier Business of the Year Awards, so they can share some of their highlights and nuggets of knowledge they have gained on their entrepreneurial journey.
Our special guest Gary Verity will no doubt, enlighten and entertain us in equal measures in his own imitable style. Since his appointment as Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire in October 2008, his team have successfully raised the profile of Yorkshire at a national and international level. Attracting over 200 million visits a year, tourism in Yorkshire is now worth around £7 billion. Gary and his team work closely with tourism businesses, councils and other partners to grow the county’s visitor economy and make Yorkshire a leading destination.
Sir Gary is probably best known for his key role in attracting the Tour de France Grand Depart cycling extravaganza to Yorkshire in 2014 and is the Director of the Tour de Yorkshire; which hits our roads again this year on the 5th and 6th May.   
We really hope you can join us for what we know will certainly be a night to remember.
