Magna event set to bring businesses together across South Yorkshire

Magna science centre is organising a South Yorkshire-wide event that brings together three chambers of commerce to help businesses build relationships across the region.

South Yorkshire in Business will take place on Thursday 29 September and will feature up to 100 exhibitors, with networking opportunities and guest speakers sharing their expertise on a range of topics.

The event is being supported by the three chambers of commerce covering Barnsley and Rotherham, Sheffield and Doncaster. A members-only networking breakfast will also take place in the morning.

John Silker, chief executive of Magna, said: “We’re delighted to have the support of the region’s chambers and are looking forward to welcoming businesses from across South Yorkshire to make important contacts, learn from our guest speakers, and build relationships with each other.”

South Yorkshire in Business will build on the success of the Inspiring Yorkshire Business and Get Up to Speed events, held at Magna earlier this year.

It will be held in the venue’s Big Hall and speaker details will be announced soon, with bookings now being taken for exhibition stands.

Magna, which is housed in the former Templeborough steelworks near junction 34 of the M1, hosts corporate events for brands including Mercedes, Royal Mail, Kia Motors and HSBC. It also organises its own programme of exhibitions, festivals and parties.

The South Yorkshire in Business event will take place a fortnight before the venue hosts the annual Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards, organised by Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce.
