South Northamptonshire Council is preparing to host its annual conference to champion the area’s ‘open for business’ approach and to thank local businesses for their contribution to the local economy.
This year’s focus is on innovation and investment. Delegates will hear from local business leaders, as well as benefit from prime networking opportunities, business growth 121s and be treated to interactive e-sport activities.

Council leader Cllr Ian McCord said: “Our location and skilled labour force make South Northamptonshire an ideal place to work, live, invest and grow.
“Every year we like to pay thanks to the businesses which are currently contributing to our local economy, making South Northamptonshire the most economically vibrant district in the county.
