Business Travel & Connectivity Event
This event has passed.
During the year we will be holding a series of live events on a variety of topics at venues around the region, come and join us for the launch of our GLOBAL REACH ASSEMBLY, the International Trade Network for North & Western Lancashire.
Given the amount of time that business travellers often spend away from home, it’s important to structure your business travel in a way that suits your needs. Broadly, the needs of business travellers are connectivity, privacy and space, convenience, efficiency, comfort, and reliability.
In this event we welcome guest speakers from: Manchester Airport, Virgin Atlantic Airways and the Department of International Trade.
