Event description

Description

Revive and Thrive have teamed up with Wimborne BID to create an event that will be an essential networking and strategic knowledge sharing event for the region.

This is for anyone wanting to make a contribution to the future success of their place and for those wanting to network and collaborate with others with engaging presentations, interactive workshops and fun networking sessions.

We have a fantastic lineup of speakers who are going to present examples of supporting creative and resilient high streets and share best practice on how to face its challenges.

  • We will hear about reducing business crime from an academic point of view and then seen how that feeds into a green agenda.
  • We'll be having a fun speed-networking session where you'll really get to know the other key players in the area.
  • We'll then learn about reducing business crime from a practical solution perspective as well as some other very interesting solutions including local digital shopping, analytics and wayfinding.​
  • We will also be running a fascinating walking tour over lunch that will compliment the ideas discussed during the day.
