Calderdale Business Breakfast – Recovery & renewal after the pandemic

May 11 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Join Calderdale College and Halifax Panthers from 8am on Wednesday 11 May for a business breakfast discussing opportunities for local businesses.

About this event

Unprecedented levels of investment are pouring into Halifax – both public and private sector cash is driving change.

Road infrastructure upgrades are coming, town centre investment is happening, and a range of major developments are being built now – including the redevelopment of both the rail and bus stations.

As the communities and its leaders look to develop the next chapter for the town, how can local businesses ensure they take advantage of the opportunities?

And, more widely across the Calderdale area, how are complementary developments in Elland and Brighouse further supportive of economic recovery and renewal?

As the final restrictions from the Covid-19 pandemic are finally removed, and people and businesses start to cautiously get back to business as usual, how can Halifax take advantage of the global opportunities available?
