Inspiring Yorkshire Business Event

Inspiring Yorkshire, Stand 79

Magna Science Adventure Centre, Rotherham

Thursday 18th February, 9am-3pm


The Open4Business team are pleased to be supporting the RiDO Business Retail & Investment Team at this year’s Inspiring Yorkshire business event.

The Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham is launching its very own business networking exhibition – The Inspiring Yorkshire Business Event.

Set in the former Templeborough steelworks, Magna is a family attraction with more than 100 hands-on exhibits. Millions of pounds have been invested in conference facilities at the centre which plays host to nationally important music events, corporate launches and award ceremonies.

In 2014, Magna hosted the Yorkshire International Business Convention (YIBC), a leading business event in continental Europe. It was hailed as a success by the organisers and was set to come back this year.

Now, the award-winning venue has announced that the Inspiring Yorkshire Business Event will be held in the Big Hall on February 18.

It is set to include stalls for more than 100 businesses, as well as expert workshops, seminars and speakers. High profile speakers are expected to join the line-up.

John Silker, chief executive at Magna, said: “We have a very proud history of running major trade shows and exhibitions that attract thousands of visitors here at Magna. These are organised by the companies themselves and we thought it was about time that we organised our own business event in an effort to help businesses across the region.

“There are some amazing businesses, but many are unaware of each other or what they can offer. So coming to Magna, with its huge capacity, will give them the chance to network with more than 100 different companies in one day – bringing many mutual benefits. It will be a fantastic opportunity for both them and us.”
