The countdown has begun for next week’s Lancashire Supply Chain Conference, held on Wednesday 8th November at the home of Blackburn Rovers Football Club, Ewood Park.

Hailed as the ultimate event for boosting your supplier and customer bases, the conference, hosted by East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, is set to empower Lancashire businesses by offering invaluable opportunities and advice for expanding their supplier or customer base.
