One of Harrogate’s leading commercial property developers has been announced as the headline partner for next month’s Yorkshire Business Market.

Hornbeam Park Developments Limited has thrown its weight behind the annual celebration of business and entrepreneurship, being held at Pavilions of Harrogate, on Monday, April 30.

Expected to attract more than 1,000 delegates, the focus of this year’s event – which has already seen more than 60 exhibitors including hotels, accountancy firms and digital marketing agencies booking stands –  is “Alternative Business Funding”.

In addition to scores of firms and organisations showcasing their unique services, the event, now in its fourteenth year, will feature keynote speakers, seminars and plenty of networking opportunities.

Yorkshire Business Market Chairman Mark Lancaster said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Hornbeam Park Developments Limited has come on board as our headline partner.

“The Harrogate District is home to some fantastic businesses and business leaders, and Chris Bentley, who heads Hornbeam Park Developments, is no exception.

“His business park, the former home of ICI Fibres, boasts an abundance of fast-growing, home-grown talent – professional practices, innovative manufacturers, high technology companies, social enterprises, the headquarters of a national hotel chain and a range of leisure and restaurant facilities, all within an exciting and vibrant community.

“These in turn provide employment opportunities for hundreds of local people and in turn significantly boost the local economy.”

Mr Bentley, Managing Director of Hornbeam Park Developments, said: “The Yorkshire Business Market is the Harrogate district’s premier business event, and we are delighted to be this year’s main partner.

“As passionate believers in assisting our tenants to grow their businesses, we also whole heartedly support this year’s theme.

“Despite the current turbulent climate, Harrogate is a superb location for business, and for the last 14 years the Yorkshire Business Market has flown the flag for businesses across the Harrogate District.”

Mr Lancaster added: “Last year’s business market was a sell out, attracting more than 100 exhibitors and more than 1,000 visitors from across the region. It is a one-day business-to-business networking opportunity, with great displays and topical seminars.”
