LBF is the first two-week business festival ever to be run in the UK and, in its third year it is by far, the largest of its kind.
The Leicester Business Festival is the region’s largest business event. With more than 12,500 attendees each year and 130 events, the two week programme truly represents the prosperity, innovation and growth that shows that Leicester and Leicestershire is the heart of UK Business.
The Leicester Business Festival aims to drive economic growth across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland for the benefit of all who live, do business and work there.
LBF is operated by the Leicester Business Festival Community Interest Company (CIC) and run in association with Associate Events.
The Festival is the antithesis of a ‘top down’ organisation.The entire festival is developed by business, for business and while there is an organisation providing the infrastructure to organise and promote the festival itself, event organisers, partners and supporters take the lead in organising events and collectively set the agenda and programme each year.
LBF truly is the demonstration of Leicester and Leicestershire’s business community as it is today.
