PLMR Advent backs major economic conference

A leading Midlands communications agency has signed up as a partner to the region’s biggest economic conference – and it will see the return of its media hub to the event.

PLMR Advent, which is based in Coventry – and is part of the wider PLMR Group, with offices in Birmingham, London and Ipswich, is the media partner for the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Business & Economic Conference at the Coventry Building Society Arena on Friday, November 10.

The event will feature a range of speakers and panels and will follow a theme of ‘Doing Business with Purpose’.

Lee Corden, PLMR board director, said the company was thrilled to be playing a key role in the event.

He said: “We’ve attended and worked at the conference every year for the past two decades as part of our ongoing relationship with the Chamber and we are really pleased to sign up as media partner for the event in 2023.

“It will mean our media hub will be present again where we’ll carry out interviews with speakers and delegates, which will lead to the production of a post event video, as well as providing social media updates throughout the day.

“We will also arrange interviews with members of the media who are in attendance and provide high-quality, professional photography from the event.

“The Chamber is a valued client of PLMR Advent and this year’s theme of ‘Doing Business with Purpose’ is something that fits with the wider PLMR Group’s ethos of being a force for good and working with companies and organisations who make a positive difference to society and to the economy.

“It should be another fantastic event.”

The Chamber has announced multi-award-winning broadcaster Clive Myrie as its keynote speaker.

The event will also hear from Monica Fogarty, chief executive of Warwickshire County Council, and Julie Nugent, chief executive of Coventry City Council, in an interview session with Chamber chief executive Corin Crane.

There will also be Business & Economic and Future Workforce panel sessions during the conference, which is expected to be attended by more than 250 business leaders and decision-makers.

Corin said: “We’re really pleased to have PLMR Advent on board as our media partners again.

“Our Annual Business & Economic Conference is our biggest event of the year and it’s great to have Lee and the team at PLMR supporting us to bring added profile to the day.”

The conference is being delivered in partnership with PET-Xi Training, Prime Accountants Group, Eskuta and Make Venues – Woodland Grange.
