Destination Cardiff: creating opportunities for EDA businesses

October 3, 2023
England, Scotland, and now Wales: the EDA lands in Cardiff for another Regional Business Forum, Wednesday 27 September 2023.

Legislation changes, staff retention, the urgent need for quality data and sustainable solutions can become overwhelming if you are disconnected from the business environment.

With every EDA Forum you can catch up with the market trends, develop new ideas and hear inspiring stories from other players where the live examples drive real changes for your business.

As with all our Regional Business Forums, the presentations are focussed on the EDA wholesaler, offering fresh ideas and opportunities.

If you missed the Forum or would like a recap on the presentations, you’ll find all the links below.
