 Published on: 20th October 2020   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Local businesses in the St Albans District have been urged to attend an online summit which will highlight and discuss vital issues for business owners alike.

The event hosted by St Albans City and District is going ahead with the summit after the success of the event last year.

There will be a selection of speakers, including Jim McManus, Hertfordshire’s director of public health, who will help to provide information on the local impact of COVID-19.

Councillor Mandy McNeil, portfolio holder for business, tourism, and culture, will also speak to outline what support the council is offering during the pandemic.

There will also be speakers from St Albans District Chamber of Commerce, the Federation of Small Businesses, Hertfordshire County Council and Hertfordshire Growth Hub.

Representatives from the Maltings and Christopher Place shopping centres will give an update on local retail issues.

The summit is on Wednesday, November 11 from 5pm to 6.30pm and will take place online via Microsoft Teams.

Cllr McNeil said: “I initiated last year’s summit and it was such a success that we are now committed to making it an annual event.

“This year will be particularly important because top of the agenda, of course, will be the huge challenges facing our businesses from the COVID-19 outbreak.

“I urge anyone running a local business to consider attending the summit to take advantage of the information briefings and networking opportunities that will arise.”
