Yorkshire’s Business Elite Assemble for MY Conference Kirklees


Leading figures from across West Yorkshire, including our own Managing Director Gareth Davies entertained and informed the packed seminars at The John Smith’s Stadium for this year’s annual Kirklees Business Conference.

The occasion was the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce’s second year at hosting the event independently and was a resounding success, with over 500 people being involved on the day.

Focused on local business, the conference boasted partnership with Brand Yorkshire, Topic UK and us here at the Stadium.

The exhibitors worked together to execute a hugely successful day, enjoyed by all who attended, covering topics from; the digital landscape with Kirklees Core, the state of the district – a panel including our MD Gareth Davies and corporate social responsibility with Latitude7. The exhibitors also led the day online, with Ramsdens testing the delegates’ steady arms with ‘Beat The Buzz’ and Social Progresses amazing ‘tweet board’.

The event offered the guests access to a wide range of exciting seminars and clinics based around business opportunities and strategies, as well as 48 different exhibitor stands. 

On behalf of the Chamber, the Stadium would like to give a massive thank you to all of the partners, exhibitors and delegates who helped to make the conference an amazing success and the best one held to date!
