#CovHourLive networking event to help benefit Coventry

Emily Fish 20th Jun, 2017

A NEW networking event will give businesses the opportunity ‘to get together and build relationships to help benefit the city.’

#CovHourLive will provide expert advice and a chance to gain an insight into the future of Coventry.

The night is free for all and will take place on Thursday, June 29, between 6pm and 9pm, at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in the city centre.

The event will feature a number of keynote speakers, including Paul Fairburn from Coventry University, who will be sharing the details of the new National Technology and Design Centre and BBC Coventry and Warwickshire presenter Brody Swain as the host.

The organisers have said the event has already received ‘a huge amount of interest’, with 70 delegates signing up and support from Coventry Business Improvement District (BID).

Coventry BID will be the event’s official sponsor, alongside Piece of Cake Marketing, Uni City Lodge, Socially Shared and the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.

Joanne Brooks from #CovHourLive said she is very excited for the event and what it means for the business community.

She added: “CovHour has been taking place on Twitter for a number of years now and has gained a big following with one focus – showcasing what businesses and Coventry has to offer.

“Having a live event now gives us a chance to push that agenda forward and get businesses networking with each other face to face and let everyone know what is going on in the city.”

#CovHourLive will take place on the eve of Social Media Day – so the team will be sharing tips and information about the benefits of using social media for a business or organisation.

Trish Willetts, Coventry BID manager, added: “CovHour has proved to be an excellent online resource for businesses and I am thrilled that Coventry BID is one of the sponsors.

“We are pleased that so many delegates have signed up so far, but businesses still have a chance to get involved for free and help drive Coventry’s future.”
