KCOM means business with exciting week of events


An impressive line up at Humber Business Week 2019

The Humber region is ready to show it’s well and truly open for business with a week of high-profile events.

This year, Humber Business Week, which runs from Monday, 3 June, to Friday, 7 June, boasts an impressive array of high-profile keynote speakers, expos, conferences, workshops, tours, celebration receptions and, of course, the odd networking lunch to provide local companies of all sizes the chance to inspire and learn from one another.

And with speakers including billionaire Lord Alan Sugar, England footballing great Kevin Keegan and Siemens chief executive Juergen Maier to look forward to during the week, there should be something for everyone to enjoy.

Other highlights on the calendar include a boot room team talk on leadership in the KCOM Stadium’s dressing room, a guided tour of Hull’s new Priory Park film studios and a pop up restaurant led by the Michelin star restaurant Winteringham Fields.

The stadium is host to an exciting programme of events on Monday, 3 June

As usual, KCOM will be at the heart of the proceedings with three exciting free events and an open invitation to guests to drop in.

Alan Worthing, KCOM’s director of business, said: “Humber Business Week continues to go from strength to strength and this year’s programme looks like it is full of great events that will showcase the very best of the region’s business community.

“KCOM has been part of the fabric of this region since 1904 and we continue to be at the epicentre of its prosperity, burgeoning digital economy and evolving business landscape. That’s why we’re delighted to be supporting Humber Business Week with events at both the KCOM Stadium and the Bonus Arena and also to be a main sponsor of the flagship Business Day at Bridlington Spa.

“We’ll be delighted to catch-up with as many friends, both old and new, as possible during the week so please don’t hesitate to come along and say hello.”

KCOM recently completed its £85m rollout of full fibre Lightstream across Hull and East Yorkshire, bringing ultrafast broadband to more than 200,000 properties. A recent independent report revealed that Lightstream directly adds £125m to the local economy every year, boosting local businesses and allowing them to compete on a truly global scale.

Research also showed that 65 per cent of businesses in the area say Lightstream has made them more efficient while 40 per cent of customers surveyed said they felt their future growth would be hampered if they didn’t have Lightstream.
