The Official Tourism Website for Shropshire

Visit Shropshire has announced its partnership with Shropshire Festivals at the upcoming Shropshire Business Festival on April 11th at Wrekin College.

The Shropshire & Telford Tourism Expo will take place ahead of the main festival from 12pm – 2pm. Tourism and hospitality businesses will come together for networking and several topical presentations, including one on what the budget means for the tourism industry. There will also be a county-wide leaflet swap. The expo has been made free to attend to support the hospitality sector.

Mark Hooper, project lead at Visit Shropshire, said, “We’re looking forward to repeating the success of last year’s Tourism Expo this April. With Shropshire’s visitor economy experiencing continuous growth and the county being named in the ‘Top 10 Places to Visit in the World’ by ABTA this year, we want to keep the momentum going by bringing businesses together for a day of networking, insight and developing ideas.”

Following the expo, the Shropshire Business Festival will take place from 2pm – 7pm, where Visit Shropshire will be represented in the exhibitor hall. The team behind the successful business event are looking forward to welcoming Shropshire’s business community once again.

“The success of Shropshire Business Festival is in our ability to create an event where business leaders get chatting, share ideas, and form new, meaningful connections,” said Beth Heath from Shropshire Festivals. “It’s a far cry from stale conferences and networking sessions. You have the chance to put your product into people’s hands and embrace a better way of networking.”

Lanyon Bowdler has announced they will be holding a lawyers’ lounge at the event where businesses can get free legal advice from the local team and Azets will be offering free sessions with their specialist accountants and business advisory team. Managed Service Provider, Start Tech, will be hosting a Cyber Security Zone, with seminars on the latest advice to keep businesses safe from cyber threats and insights into using AI.

Beth adds, “We are lining up speakers, exhibitors and a VIP event to make this year’s festival bigger than ever.”

"🏰✨ Dive into the heart of Shrewsbury's Castle Quarter – the epicenter of history and grandeur! 🏰 Home to four of the town's largest historic treasures – Shrewsbury Castle, Library, Prison, and Train Station. 

Did you know Shrewsbury Castle's foundations were laid in 1083 by the 1st Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery? 
Montgomery, a cousin of William the Conqueror, earned this castle and more as a thank-you for his aid during the Norman conquest.

From royal stronghold to a 16th-century transformation, Shrewsbury Castle has quite the story. Now, it stands majestically, housing the Shropshire Regimental Museum. 👑🏰 Ready to step into the pages of history?
