Local Business

29-31 March 2022

The spectacular online e-vent is back…

Local businesses are raring to go – and you can help them…

Boosting Local Business is an online e-vent showcasing local Stowmarket and Suffolk businesses – those you know, those you don’t yet know, and a few you may be surprised to find are right on your doorstep.

Like everyone else, they’ve had a tough time over the past two years – but by checking out this website, and joining the live events between 29-31 March you can do your part to give them a real boost. And maybe learn a thing or two to your advantage along the way.

Don’t miss out – it’s time to help boost our local businesses!


Join our live sessions!

Each session lasts for two hours and includes two 30-minute talks and chat-show style interviews with the organisations, and the businesses, who are building Stowmarket’s future. After each session there will be open networking with featured businesses and fellow visitors, and breakout rooms available for smaller group conversations. It’s your chance to meet and talk to the people who interest you!
