Rotherham hosts National Anglo-Polish business conference

Polish entrepreneurs have rapidly established themselves across the UK. According to research by The Centre for Entrepreneurs, of all nationalities who have set up businesses in the UK, Poles rank number six. More than 22,000 companies have been set up in the UK by Polish nationals, while another 65,000 Poles are self-employed.

This represents a massive addition to the UK business population and, by integrating them fully into the trading community, opens extensive new marketing opportunities for adventurous entrepreneurs to exploit.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), in association with the Trade and Investment Promotion Section at Embassy of the Republic of Poland in London, is hosting the 2015 National Anglo-Polish Conference on 20 May, to take place at the New York Stadium, New York Way, Rotherham, S60 1AH, from 11.00am to 4.00pm.

Gordon Millward, regional chairman of the FSB, said: “The FSB finds itself once more in the vanguard of developing international business relations when we present this important National Conference, and we are delighted that it is taking place in Rotherham.

“With the theme of ‘Linking British and Polish SMEs,’ this event aims to assist the integration of the dynamic, enterprising Polish business community within the resurgent UK economy and open up the potential for innovative inter-trading opportunities.

“We would encourage as many local businesses as possible to come and meet with their Polish counterparts, many of whom are new to the business world and new to the UK. This is a prime opportunity to demonstrate to the emerging UK Polish business community that Rotherham is a great place to do business.”
