Join the Chamber and parliamentary candidates across the two counties at two political debates ahead of the next general election.

Following the recent announcement of a snap election on the 8th June, Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce is offering local business leaders the opportunity to quiz political parties ahead of the vote at two election hustings on the 25th May in Worcester and the 26th May in Hereford.

The hustings will ensure that the business community can hear from and influence the candidates prior to the election. On the day we will see parliamentary candidates and party representatives set out their priorities and debate current business and economic issues. Subjects expected to be covered include labour market, skills, red tape, upfront costs and Brexit, among other topics.

At the event, the panellists will get just two minutes to introduce themselves and put their case for election to the business community. Followed by an open questions session, after which each candidate will be given a further two minutes to make concluding comments.
The debates are set to take place in Worcester on the 25th May and in Hereford on the 26th May, 8.00am – 9.30am. As well as getting involved in an engaging debate, guests will also get the opportunity to network over refreshments ahead of the discussion and enjoy a delicious buffet breakfast.

Commenting on the hustings events, Sophia Haywood, Policy Manager, said: “This is a great opportunity for the business community to hear from parliamentary candidates and party representatives to see what they will do for businesses of all sizes and how they will support the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Business Manifesto for 2017, should they be elected.”

Places are going fast for this FREE event; contact Sophia Haywood on to secure your space or book online on the links below.
