2011 is set to be a really exciting year for the WiRE team and its members. With bigger, better and more exciting events lined up and a few more in the pipeline, we want to get our members out on show. Boasting some of the most talented, influential and inspiring rural businesses in the Country within our membership, we will proudly be waving the new WiRE flags and representing the very best of British rural business.
We are kick-starting the year with the Passion for Rural Business Conference on 16th February here in the fantastic surroundings of the glistening new Regional Food Academy just a stones throw away from the WiRE headquarters. As you walk into the imposing atrium you will be greeted with beautifully arranged WiRE Member stalls dotted around, prior to entering the all new equipped lecture theatre.
The day will start with two brilliantly entertaining and motivating WiRE members, Claire Martinsen and Emma Heathcote- James followed by two expert seminars led by Regional Marketing Manager for Tesco Caroline Bartrop and Brand consultant Caroline Law. With a focus on Brand Management and guidance on suitable routes to market for varying business types and business sizes, there will be ample expertise at hand to make this a valuable day for all.
WiRE has listened intently to our member’s requests and we are now hoping to bring WiRE conferences closer to you! With the desire for regional conferences nationwide, we are currently in talks with sponsors to bring WiRE conferences to Somerset, Yorkshire and the East of England, so keep those diaries close to hand and watch this space…!
Starting off show season; in the fabulously countryfied “Farrow and Ball” style WiRE marquees, WiRE will be hitting the Devon County Show on 19th-21st May as the first of MANY shows to come through the Summer, later expect to see WiRE Marquees and fabulous WiRE member businesses at the Royal Welsh Show, the Three Counties, Great Yorkshire the Cotswold and view many more shows on our events page.
The year is only just beginning, WiRE want the whole year to be brilliant for you and your business by filling your calendar with opportunities to sell, promote and learn new skills.
