South Yorkshire in Business will take place on Thursday 29th September and will feature up to 100 exhibitors, with networking opportunities and guest speakers sharing their expertise on a range of topics. The event, which we be held from 10am to 3pm, 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 at 8am. 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. Bookings are now being taken for exhibition stands and interested businesses can contact the Magna Events Team on 01709 723118. Chamber members will receive a 25 per cent discount. 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.
