The UK Black Business Show has been created to inspire and connect black business owners and professionals working in various industries. Through business exhibitions, deep-dive workshops, interactive panels and seminars, delivered by industry pioneers, this event will enable personal, professional and corporate development.
To celebrate UK Black History Month, The UK Black Business Show will be taking place in October. The show will highlight the achievements and contributions black businesses have made to the economy. Attendees will gain cutting-edge insight and advice in entrepreneurship, leadership, soft skills and cultural development from some of the UK’s leading black business owners.
This event will provide a unique and exciting space for people and organisations to network, discuss and take action on advancing the development of ethnic minorities in the UK. The UK Black Business Show will not shy away from addressing difficult topics, rather we broaden people’s perspective to new ideas by creating opportunities for our attendees to learn and develop. We promote businesses and business leaders who aspire to inspire more black women and men to make a positive difference to the economy and the world at large.
By creating a progressive and positive arena in which black businesses can come together, The UK Black Business Show will assist both attendees and exhibitors to make meaningful connections and will create a platform that promotes the development and representation of black talent. Join us in supporting the future for UK Black Business. Standard tickets are £23.50. Gold tickets are £41.50 from eventbrite.
