First ‘Clicks and Mortar’ Business Event Planned for October 24th 2012
New series of events focuses on helping businesses to compete using Internet resources
How do ‘real world’ companies compete with low cost, low overhead internet businesses like Amazon? A new series of events sponsored by Oxfordshire Business First and Bicester Vision will bring together the experiences and knowledge from Oxfordshire business people who are doing just that.
Called “Clicks and Mortar”, the events will focus on the issues and opportunities available to business people who want to use Internet resources more effectively to grow their businesses.
The new series will begin on October 24th with an opening event at Unipart House in Oxford beginning at 6.30 pm. Each session will feature two 20 minute presentations from Oxfordshire business people and will be followed by a discussion session.
Oxfordshire Business First Chairman Frank Nigriello will open the session with “Parking on the Digital Superhighway”, which will look at why companies find it difficult to establish a commercial presence on the web.
Hotelier Anthony Lloyd will then present his experiences using social media to drive significant increases in both clients and revenue at Fallowfields Hotel.
The events follow on from the ‘Practical Innovation’ series that was held during the first half of 2012 in venues across the county. At those meetings, web-based companies were consistently referred to as examples of innovative thinking and ‘game changing’ ideas.
Events are planned to be run monthly. The full schedule will be published on Oxfordshire Business First’s website.
All events are free, but attendees are asked to pre-register on the Oxfordshire Business First website (under Events) or by contacting Denise Moffatt at denise.moffatt@unipart.com.
