BUSINESSES INSPIRED DURING FIFE BUSINESS WEEK 2018

THIS year’s Fife Business Week welcomed over 800 attendees along to a broad range of events held throughout the week 5th to 9th November.

The week was dominated by a major collaboration between Fife Council Economic Development, Centre for Engineering Education and Development (CeeD) and the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Services (SMAS), delivering the national CENSIS 5th Technology summit in Glasgow.  This offered businesses an opportunity to revolutionise their manufacturing processes to assist Advanced Manufacturing.

Feedback from the CENSIS technology seminar, was extremely positive, with one delegate commenting: “Cracking day at CENSIS18, the tech summit to trump all others!” Another attendee, said: “Great event. Spoke with so many interesting people and engaged with some great companies.”

Councillor Altany Craik, Fife Council’s Convenor for Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning & Transportation Committee commented: “It was fantastic to see so many Fife businesses participate in the wide range of workshops, seminars and events held throughout the week, covering important issues for the local economy. With an ever changing and often challenging economic environment, we hope that Fife’s entrepreneurs and business leaders are inspired by fresh insights into workforce development, advanced manufacturing, finance and strategy and digital connectivity and they continue to sustain and develop for the future.”

Hosted by Fife Council’s Economic Development Team and supported by Business Gateway Fife, Fife Business Week is delivered under the Fife Economy Partnership and is designed to support businesses to succeed and flourish whilst making Fife the best place to do business.
