A flagship Norfolk business centre is celebrating its first anniversary with an Innovation Exhibition to showcase the very best of innovative and entrepreneurial spirit in West Norfolk and the surrounding areas.
The King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC), in partnership with enterprise agency Nwes, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, and the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk, was officially opened in June 2016, and will host the King’s Lynn Innovation Exhibition on Tuesday 13 June.
In its first year, KLIC has welcomed 13 tenants into the top-specification workspace, as well as a wide variety of businesses and organisations as virtual tenants, and businesses who take advantage of the modern meeting and conference facilities.
Tenants Anglia IT Solutions and Rounce and Evans Property Management are already KLIC success stories; both moved into their new workspace on day one, and have taken on more units within their first year at KLIC following business growth.
March 2017, even saw KLIC welcome a Royal visitor when HRH Duke of York visited to understand the positive impact the centre is already having on entrepreneurs and the local business community.
Celebrating its first year, the King’s Lynn Innovation Exhibition will offer a platform for exhibitors, entrepreneurs and businesses to come together to boost their business by making connections and sharing success. Free workshops are available throughout the day, which will focus on opportunities for business growth through innovation.
KLIC Centre Coordinator Joni Phillips says.
“King’s Lynn Innovation Centre has enjoyed a successful first year. We are looking forward to welcoming the business community from West Norfolk and beyond to celebrate the KLIC’s first anniversary at the King’s Lynn Innovation Exhibition.”
Supported by organisations, including New Anglia LEP, Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership, SCORE, Hethel Innovation, Kaleida, Innovation New Anglia, and Enterprise Europe Network, the event is open to all and is free to attend. There are still places available for what promises to be a unique and uplifting celebration event.
