Finding new clients is always a challenge for small businesses and Vale4Business offers the ideal forum for understanding where those new opportunities might arise. The key speakers at the launch in June gave a rare insight into the way that large companies and local authorities are thinking, which enables a small business, like mine, to think about our offer to these potential clients. Milagro Designs

“Vale4Business allows us to keep abreast of the developing infrastructure, the affect on the local economy, and to be able to meet with like minded people who are passionate about the future of the local area. Allowing each and every business to have their say can only ensure that the officials making final decisions are aware of the impact on businesses/people in the area.” Bluestream Recruitment
