County businesses showcased at House of Commons ahead of Staffordshire Day celebrations

Staffordshire businesses and local leaders will showcase the county’s enterprise success on a national stage at a House of Commons event next week.

Taking place on Tuesday (April 26) ahead of Staffordshire Day which falls on Sunday May 1, the marketplace event will feature over 20 businesses from Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent. It will provide businesses with an opportunity to raise their profile by showcasing their success and why Staffordshire is a great place to do business, work, learn and visit to ministers, Lords and MPs from all parties.

Businesses will be supported by Staffordshire County Council leader Alan White and Deputy leader, Philip White, the Rt Hon Karen Bradley MP, Theo Clarke MP and business leaders.

The event has been organised by We are Staffordshire – a partnership of business, education and public sector organisations promoting and marketing the county and city. It aims to showcase Staffordshire both nationally and internationally – attracting residents, visitors, businesses and investment.

Businesses attending range from the county’s flagship manufacturers and attractions to small enterprises making their mark.

Staffordshire County Council leader Alan White said: “The House of Commons Staffordshire Day event gives us the opportunity to showcase the county’s business success stories to national leaders.

“The House of Commons event is important as it gives us the reach and ability to influence those who ultimately make decisions on future funding and investment.

Karen Bradley MP said: “As a Staffordshire MP I’m pleased to be helping to lead this event which will further establish our county as a place for enterprise and growth to colleagues from across the country.

“It’s great that we can mark Staffordshire Day in this way and help to put us firmly on the map.”
