In March 2020, we were delighted to bring to you a brand new business conference to Aberystwyth and mid Wales!

This conference was an excellent opportunity for you to network with other businesses, chat to our exhibitors and also join in on the many workshops being held during the day. We held a range of exciting workshops, discussing the digital world, mental health in the workplace, finding finance and more.

This is a free event, and you can pop in at any time, you don’t need to put aside the whole day. We have a timetable of workshops below, and also an excellent selection of exhibitors available to chat to through the day.

This was a Menter Aberystwyth event, in association with Advancing Aberystwyth.

With thanks to our sponsors: Aberystwyth Town Council, Aberystwyth University, Advancing Aberystwyth, The EGO, FSB, Business Wales, Menter a Busnes.
