In response to the unique challenges the business community has experienced over the last two years, the Chamber has additionally announced the inclusion of its Chamber Awards reception which, in the spirit of Black Country 2.0, will celebrate those businesses and leaders who have faced tremendous adversity in recent months but have shown amazing resilience and ingenuity and achieved astonishing turn around results during the pandemic.

The Chamber’s biggest campaign in its 180-year-old history, Black Country 2.0, is an initiative launched earlier this year to focus the Chamber’s lobbying and business support work and helping its members to reboot and rebuild whilst enabling businesses to rebound as they navigate the end of the Brexit transition period and the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Conference, held at Wolverhampton Racecourse on the 11th of November, will feature a range of speakers from the business and policy world and a small physical audience, it will be followed by the Awards Reception for shortlisted applications.

Both events will be streamed virtually for those unable to attend the physical events.
