The Business Exchange South West Charity Conference 2020

February 6, 2020 @ 7:30 am - 3:00 pm


Attend the Business Exchange South West Charity Conference 2020 at Bath Racecourse on Thursday 6th February 2020.

The event will bring together local charities, the third sector and the business community, to connect, share learnings and go for growth.

Event timings:

  • 7:30 – 8:15am Networking breakfast
  • 8:15- 9am Conference opener (keynote speaker – to be announced)
  • 9am-3pm Exhibition (stands for both businesses and charities to promote themselves)
  • Seminar sessions throughout the day in set seminar rooms (subjects to be decided)
  • Casual drinks in bar at the end of the day to extend networking opportunities

The day will start with a networking breakfast at 7:30am and the conference will officially open with an inspirational keynote speaker to set the tone for the day.

From 9am-3pm there will be an opportunity for businesses and charities to exhibit. Charities can showcase their work and companies can demonstrate to the third sector their specialisms.

Throughout the day attendees will be able to attend a number of FREE seminar slots designed to educate, inform, inspire and ignite ideas.

The seminar sessions will cover a number of topics voted for by this year’s attendees in post-event feedback. Subjects for discussion include:

  • Alternative Funding
  • Donor Engagement
  • Finance
  • Fundraising
  • Social Media
  • Marketing
  • Technology

The Business Exchange is proud to announce that 2019’s event partners have signed up to support the charity conference again in 2020. Fidelius Group, Stone King LLP and Milsted Langdon LLP, will all be involved, with their specific contributions to be announced once the full day’s programme is compiled. What we can reveal is that Fidelius will be hosting a Giving Bank, where people can donate everything from time, to skills and financial support.

Over 90 delegates attended the first Business Exchange South West Charity Conference and the plan is to double that figure in 2020.

The idea is to make the event as affordable as possible, with the ability to pick and mix the parts of the day you attend. This is not an income generating event, we just need to cover our costs.

What our 2019 delegates said…..

“As a charity we don’t often get the opportunity to interact with businesses. It was a revelation to see how important and beneficial it is to foster symbiotic relationships between the two. I found the speakers all very relevant and insightful too.”

“The speakers were very informative – I came away with much food for thought on how we might improve practice in our organisation.”

“Great mixture of businesses and charities. Good networking, friendly people. An event filling a gap in the South West.
