Business leaders from across Scotland will discuss issues affecting the economy at an event in Grangemouth on Friday.

The 2016 Business Falkirk Annual Conference will once again have a range of major industry figures giving their thoughts on everything from Brexit to tourism.

Organised by Falkirk Council, sponsored by Ineos and supported by media partners The Falkirk Herald, more than 200 delegates are expected to attend the event in the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel.

They will have the chance to listen and discuss the comments from a range of speakers, who include John McNally, CEO of Ineos Grangemouth; Malcolm Roughead, VisitScotland chief executive; Steve Dunlop, chief executive of Scottish Canals; David Bell, Professor of economics at Stirling University; and Councillor Craig Martin, leader of Falkirk Council.

Councillor Dennis Goldie, Falkirk Council’s spokesperson for economic development, said: “Every year we have a huge interest from the business sector in this event and we expect this year to be no different.

“It offers a real insight into what some great industry leaders are thinking and will no doubt help local businesses take themselves forward with more confidence in the coming year.”

Tickets for the event are £30 plus VAT per person with a three for two ticket offer available.
