Dorset Chamber has revealed its partnership with leading law firm Lester Aldridge as more information about a major business festival is revealed.
The Dorset Business Festival, which is the first event of its kind in the chamber’s 74-year history, will be held from 10th to 12th October. The three-day event is expected to attract delegates from across the region and will feature a conference, expo and the eagerly anticipated return of the Dorset Business Awards. Lester Aldridge has committed as the lead partner for the summit.
Ian Girling, CEO of Dorset Chamber, said, ‘We are delighted to have Lester Aldridge as our lead partner for the Dorset Business Festival. As a long-standing supporter of the chamber and a leading local business, they are the ideal partner for this event, which will showcase the success of the region’s businesses and consider the major challenges that they face today. We are confident that it will be a fantastic showcase for Dorset’s business community.’
Lester Aldridge, a full-service law firm headquartered in Bournemouth with offices in Southampton and London, is a Premier Partner of Dorset Chamber and the first business to commit to the festival, which will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Bournemouth town centre.
Grant Esterhuizen, Partner at Lester Aldridge, said, ‘We are excited to be a part of the Dorset Business Festival. It will provide a tremendous opportunity to bring the business community together after the turbulence of recent times, and we hope that many other Dorset businesses, organisations and individuals will also participate.’
Additional details about the Dorset Business Festival have been revealed. On 10th October, a conference will be hosted by presenter and former BBC Breakfast business correspondent Declan Curry. It will feature a keynote speaker and expert panel discussions, with topics likely to include technology and the environmental, social and governance agenda.
