Fife Business Week 2020 - Call for Events

Creating Business Opportunities in the new Normal
Following the success of last year’s Fife Business Week, Fife Council Economic Development is pleased to announce our 11th Fife Business Week, which will run from 2nd to 6th November 2020.
Obviously, this year has been like no other for local business, our communities and the economy.  The onset of COVID-19, along with Brexit has brought many unforeseen issues for businesses to overcome and it has proved very challenging and even devastating in many circumstances. However, thankfully many have adapted and changed their business models which has allowed them to sustain and flourish. 
We are pleased to invite partners and stakeholders to host or engage in an event during Fife Business Week 2020. 
This year, the week will be delivered differently to comply with social distancing requirements and to make sure we follow government guidelines for public health and safety. However, a programme of inspiring business seminars, workshops, masterclasses and networking opportunities will be delivered in digital formats to bring together private and public sector organisations in a bid to promote opportunities especially in our key sectors like Food & Drink, Energy, Advanced Manufacturing, Tourism and Construction. It’s an excellent opportunity to share Best Practice and give sound advice to new and growing businesses to help boost resilience and maintain sustainability while encouraging capacity building to allow investment to increase trade, especially in this new environment.
The week will be coordinated by a variety of key partners and professional intermediaries across Fife to deliver sector specific free online business events, including open days by our manufacturing companies and; to make use of any related events that may already be planned but holding them over this nominated week. 
Fife Business Week 2020 will benefit from a significant amount of promotion including radio, local press, social media channels and an interactive website accessible for mobile devices.  
This is a great opportunity to demonstrate the diversity and range of business support services in Fife, that reflect the ethos of our 11th Fife Business Week and support our SMEs in Fife. More than ever this year, it is vital we give confidence to businesses that they can work through the challenges to become stronger and more resilient for future sustainability and growth.
If you would like an event to be considered for Fife Business Week 2020, please download and complete the “event submission form” and return to by Friday 14th August, 2020.  Unfortunately, we will require to adhere to this timeline, so please, even if you do not have a fully spec’d event, please submit a note of interest.
