Business leaders in Dorset will have the opportunity to make a case for investment into the South West and have their say on the region’s future at a regional roadshow.

The Dorset Roadshow, which is the second of four Regional Roadshows, is tailored to address the specific challenges and opportunities within the county.

Hosted by the Great South West Pan-Regional Partnership, it is taking place in collaboration with Dorset Chamber at Bournemouth University on 16th July.

Ahmed Goga, Director of the Great South West, commented: “We are excited to announce our second Regional Roadshow in Dorset.

“Each Roadshow presents a unique opportunity for business leaders to share their challenges, which we intend to bring forward in our discussions with Government Ministers and MPs.

“As part of our ongoing work to elevate the region, we can strengthen our collective voice and ensure our region plays a leading role in the UK’s economic future.”

Ian Girling, Chief Executive of Dorset Chamber and Dorset LEP Board Member, said: “We are delighted to be working on the Great South West on this event.

“The Great South West seeks to unite and promote the region and we completely support this as a fantastic place for businesses to prosper and thrive within a beautiful environment.

“We are keen to promote this to the excellent businesses we have here in Dorset.”

The Regional Roadshow will bring together senior business leaders, investors, and local authorities. The event aims to spotlight the region’s business community and advance its interests on the national stage.

Great South West is developing a range of key events and activity through 2024, including the Regional Roadshows, economic and sector insight reports, Westminster events and a major national conference, in Exeter, in September.
