News: Magna to bring businesses back to borough


Unique Rotherham venue, Magna, has announced that it will host the South Yorkshire in Business event in September - a follow up to a successful similar event held in February.

Set in the former Templeborough steelworks, Magna is a family attraction with more than 100 hands-on exhibits. A £46m Millennium project, Magna opened its doors as a visitor attraction for the very first time in 2001. Millions of pounds have been invested in conference facilities at the centre which plays host to nationally important music events, boxing, corporate launches and award ceremonies.

South Yorkshire in Business will take place on Thursday September 29 and will feature up to 100 exhibitors, with networking opportunities and guest speakers sharing their expertise on a range of topics.


The event, which we be held from 10am to 3pm, is being supported by the chambers of commerce covering Barnsley and Rotherham, Sheffield and Doncaster. A members-only networking breakfast will also take place at 8am.

John Silker, chief executive of Magna, said: "We're delighted to have the support of the region's chambers and are looking forward to welcoming businesses from across South Yorkshire to make important contacts, learn from our guest speakers, and build relationships with each other."

South Yorkshire in Business will build on the success of the Inspiring Yorkshire Business and Get Up to Speed events, held at Magna earlier this year. It will be held in the venue's Big Hall and speaker details will be announced soon.

Bookings are now being taken for exhibition stands and interested businesses can contact the Magna Events Team on 01709 723118. Chamber members will receive a 25% discount.

The event will take place a fortnight before the venue hosts the annual Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards.
