A new business club has been launched, offering companies the chance to raise their profile whilst supporting community events across Dudley borough.
Dudley’s Mayoral Business Club was officially launched by the Mayor of Dudley at Himley Hall last night (Wednesday 6 February).
The business club is open to all local businesses, and offers them access to a series of exclusive networking events, VIP experiences and high profile sponsorship opportunities.
Members contribute £1,000 each which goes towards funding community events like Armed Forces Day and the Himley Bonfire, helping to make the borough an attractive place to work, live and visit.
Each year a prize draw is held, with some of the lucky businesses winning the rights to become principal sponsors of events, with sponsorship packages worth in excess of £8,000.
This year’s principal sponsors of some of the borough’s largest events are Lapal House for the Mayor’s Ball and Civic Awards, Jewsons for Black Country Musicom, Wates Living Space for the Himley Bonfire, Black Country Radio for Armed Forces Day, Cambridge Weight Plan – Transforming U for Under 5s Day and the Lee Shaw Partnership for the Dudley Trail.
The Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Alan Taylor said:
The Mayoral Business Club helps us to run community events across the borough for the benefit all of our residents and also helps to raise the profile of the borough as a great place to live, work and visit.
Last night’s launch event went really well and it was great to be able to talk to local businesses about the pride they take in their work and their communities. We still have some spaces left in this year’s business club and I would encourage other like-minded businesses to consider joining us in the work we do.
