Event description

Description

Blaenau Gwent high streets face many challenges in the current climate, in this Town Centre Focus meeting we'll be looking at the retailer's experience so far and what the main challenges are. We'll then be taking a look at successful projects and case studies from around the UK and see how we can apply those to Blaenau Gwent and really make a difference.

This event will be an essential networking and strategic knowledge sharing event for Blaenau Gwent for anyone wanting to make a contribution to the future success of the area and for those wanting to network and collaborate with others.

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 these challenges.

Please see the working agenda below (subject to addition/change) for an outline of the speakers. More details will be added shortly.
