Thurrock business conference

Established in 2011, Thurrock business conferences offer you the chance to contribute to shaping the economic activity in Thurrock.

The conferences form part of our work together with the Thurrock Business Board to:

  • improve networking opportunities for local businesses
  • give local businesses a chance to have their say on what matters to them
  • showcase the vast opportunities available within Thurrock now and in the coming years

Business Support Market

In addition the the BEST Growth Hub, we've invited the following to provide information on event market stalls:


  • 7:30am - registration and refreshments
  • 8am - opening speeches and presentations
  • 9am - question and answer session
  • 9:20am - open networking and business market session
  • 10:30am - event close

Most businesses agree that our conferences are a great opportunity to network with those they rarely get to see. We have arranged an hour-long open networking session after the question and answer session has finished, so delegates can maximise the networking potential of this event. Afterwards, the BEST Growth Hub roadshow will take place from 10:30am to 1pm.
