Volunteers needed for Business Festival

Published on: Monday, 31-March-2014

Organisers of the International Festival for business (IFB) are looking for 1,000 volunteers to welcome visitors to the city region this summer.

In June and July, business leaders from all over the world will arrive in Merseyside for the inaugural International Festival for Business. Billed as the UK’s most significant international trade and investment showcase for decades, the 50-day show will attract people from more than 100 countries.

Knowsley Council is already busy making sure it maximises the opportunities available, helping local business make the vital connections which could help them win new global business and help provide a huge boost to our economy.

And now residents have the opportunity to get involved by volunteering to greet the thousands of extra visitors the event is expected to attract.

The organisers are appealing to those who want to make a real difference to the visitor experience and who are proud to show off their city region.

If you are interested and would like to find out more or sign up, visit the International Festival for Business website or go along to the Open Day on Thursday 3 April from 4pm at No1 Mann Island, Liverpool, L3 1BP
