Outlook Portishead 2013 speakers

An event showcasing Portishead will be held this spring.

The Portishead Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with local event management company In Any Event UK, is to host Outlook Portishead on May 8 2014.

The event, aimed at Southwest based business people, is running for its second year after a successful launch in 2013.

The conference will review the redevelopment of Portishead, the growth the town is achieving and where it is heading.

The event has secured Councillor Nigel Ashton (Leader of North Somerset Council) as the headline speaker and Sue Mountstevens (Police & Crime Commissioner) will also be presenting.

The event will be hosted by David Passmore (former BBC Correspondent) and will also include talks from Waitrose Partnership & Quality Solicitors Burroughs Day.

The event will also feature a Q&A session where questions will be taken from the audience on burning issues they would like to raise with the panel of speakers. This always proves a popular session and is only open to those who have registered for the conference

Portishead is one of the fastest growing in the UK, largely due to the redevelopment of Port Marine and the house-building programme, which will see the existing 22,000-strong population rise by a further 8,000 or so over the next few years.

Alex Woodward, President of the Portishead Chamber, comments: “We’re keen to show the Southwest business community that Portishead is a greatplace to work.

“The event will showcase a diverse range of companies and provide a platform to develop new business opportunities.

“In addition, it will demonstrate how the town is continuing to grow into one of the most prosperous and exciting places to live and work in the region.”

Outlook Portishead will take place on Thursday 8th May at Somerset Hall, Portishead.

Tickets for this exciting event cost £25.00 (earlybird fee until 29/03/14) increasing to £30.00 for members of the Portishead Chamber of Commerce and £35.00 for non-members.

The ticket price includes refreshments, lunch and an information pack. There are also sponsorship and exhibition stands available.
