Topical, relevant workshops offering understandable, practical presentations by experts and case study speakers, often followed by a good lunch! These are the hallmarks of Warwickshire Rural Hub events.

There have been more events and visits in the last 12 months than ever before and they fall into three categories: information, regulation and innovation. The latest survey responses from Members have told us that 96% feel the information provided by the Hub is both reliable and useful.

The last characteristic of our programme of events is that delegates are very reluctant to go home! The opportunity to network is a crucial component of our events and delegates certainly take the chance to do so. At evening meetings, this can lead to bleary-eyed Hub staff at 11.00 pm, but they recognise that well connected businesses are successful businesses.
