Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Leading Business Events Directories Merge to Create Wales’ Leading Events Site


Business News Wales and Grapevine Event Management have joined forces to create a leading business events resource –

The first-stage of the partnership has seen the Business Events in Wales website merge into Business News Wales and will almost double the number of events on the site. Whilst it is free for all organisations to advertise their events on the site, there will also be an option take up a paid for promotional service, together with a live streaming service covering events on the day.

Mark Powney, Manging Director, Business News Wales, said:

“Offering a 360 support service to event organisers will create a big increase in the number of industry events and networking meetings that start-up over the next 12 months. With pre -promotion coverage, live broadcasts and after event coverage, we will give organisers a bigger reach than ever before. The networking market is changing quickly as businesses adopt a range of different formats. New innovative business exhibitions, seminars and networking events will play a major role in supporting Wales post Brexit.

Reading nearly 1,000 business stories a week we can see a big interconnection between priority industries and the SME sector. Networking and collaboration will be essential post Brexit and we hope to play a big part in connecting businesses throughout Wales”

Liz Brookes, Director of Grapevine Event Management said;

“There are so many business events happening every day in Wales, the partnership with Business News Wales will help people to see all the business events taking place, and give them the ability to list their events to a wider audience.

Business events are vital to the Welsh economy, with more and more businesses realising the importance of holding events; be it to promote their company or give back to the community. Having a platform where all these events can be shown together will showcase the wide range of business events Wales has to offer.

At Grapevine Event Management, we specialise in organising corporate events and understand the importance of reaching the right audience. Business News Wales is a highly targeted news source at the heart of the Welsh business community and leveraging its reach will make a big difference.
