A business conference at the recently-refurbished Custom House co-hosted by regeneration company Riverside Inverclyde (ri) and Inverclyde Chamber of Commerce has been hailed as a fantastic success, with over 50 attendees and 18 businesses taking the opportunity to take the floor on Wednesday 28 March 2018.

The free to attend event gave businesses the opportunity to present a short 3 minute overview to their business community to assist with migration into the area as well as supporting the growth of the existing business base. The event was well received by the attendees, with the opportunity to network over breakfast prior to the event proving popular as well as the chance to meet with the individual speakers afterwards for further discussion.
