New workshops have been added to the Argyll Enterprise Week programme taking place in Oban between Monday, 31 October and Friday, 4 November 2016.

There will now be an additional session by The Digital Garage at 4.15pm on Wednesday, 2 November 2016 and another interactive session from Highland and Islands Enterprise’s (HIE) senior innovation manager and speakers from the V&A Museum in Dundee – entitled Innovation in Many Guises – at 4.30pm on Wednesday 2 November 2016.

Over 500 tickets have been booked already for the free workshops, seminars, networking opportunities and discussions taking place during the event - organised by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) and Argyll and Bute Council’s Business Gateway - to support businesses and communities throughout Argyll and the Islands and encourage enterprise.

Councillor Aileen Morton, Policy Lead for Sustainable Development, said:

“Argyll and the Islands has been recognised as one of Scotland’s most promising regions. Our geography alone gives us a number of key niche business sectors, from tourism to renewables. Regeneration is creating new opportunities across the area. Talent and ambition is in evidence in our people and in our communities.

"Argyll Enterprise Week is about building on this promise. It’s a chance for businesses to come together, share experiences, stimulate new ideas and create connections to draw on. I would encourage everyone with a business to get involved.”
