Doncaster Business Conference 2020

Our annual conference is now in its seventh year and is one of the key fixtures in the region’s calendar of business events.  The conference serves as an opportunity to bring businesses, public sector stakeholders and politicians together for a big conversation about the challenges and opportunities facing Doncaster’s economy.  From a private sector perspective, it provides a unique opportunity to shape the borough’s plans and aspirations for the future.  From a public sector perspective, it provides a great opportunity to shout about the fantastic work being undertaken to grow our economy whilst also creating the space to listen to private sector ideas about what should happen next.

The emerging themes for this year’s discussions are “Doncaster 2030” and “Business 2030” with a focus on people, place and profit.

As well as Keynote speakers we will also have panel discussions. The first panel session will foster a debate about issues such as: inward investment, infrastructure investment, education strategy, arts and culture, place marketing, and much more as a way of testing and stretching our ambitions for the borough. In the second panel session we will discuss issues such as: automation, green technology, innovation, flexible working, globalisation, and more besides as build an understanding of the Doncaster business community’s readiness to thrive in 2030 and beyond. We anticipate that there will be a diverse attendance including major employers, SMES and representatives from our public sector partners providing a fantastic opportunity to broaden your network. 

Our chosen venue for this year is CAST Theatre located in the heart of Doncaster surrounded by The Civic and Cultural Quarter which is helping to transform the town into a popular and exciting place to invest, live, work and visit.

Following the Business Conference, all guests will be invited to join us for our Doncaster Promise buffet lunch.
