Business – How to win Best in Class

The Revive & Thrive Town Centre Solutions Challenge could enable your business to soar to a new level of success if you provide solutions to town and city centres.  This is likely to be the most innovative and Fireimmersive regeneration event of the year and is being held at the Black Country Living Museum (September 24 2015) to guarantee this will be a memorable event for all concerned

This event will tackle head on some of the frustrations that you might have encountered promoting your business.  You’ve spent years and a small fortune developing the solution that you know will benefit town, cities and  communities but you’re frustrated for a number of reasons.  It could be that you can’t get to reach the person who you know will be interested or you are not getting a response from your marketing emails and calls or you’ve spent ages with a potential client but they simply don’t ‘get it’.


You are not alone and on the flip side of this your clients are so over-whelmed with great ideas and solutions that they feel the need to hide when you call or visit.

This Challenge could change everything for you.

Are you brave enough to present your business to a panel of town centre and regeneration luminaries along with representatives from BIDs, Councils, Business Groups, Shopping Centres and Town Teams/Partnerships?
