New Forest Business Partnership Breakfast Workshop

The contribution of tourism to growing the New Forest economy

Members and non members of NFBP all welcome

Tourism perhaps makes the most significant contribution of any sector to the New Forest’s economy. The last time the volume & value of local tourism was surveyed in 2015, it was estimated tourism related activities generated over £528 million annually and provided nearly 20% of all local jobs. Delivered by Go New Forest CIC, this breakfast briefing presentation will identify how all New Forest businesses, particularly non-tourism companies, can grow their own business by getting involved in the local visitor economy.

Join this breakfast discussion which will also explore the role of our towns and villages and the range of relationships required for everybody to benefit from and make the most of the opportunity tourism presents. .

Book here!  (Bookings close Wed 17 April  11.30 am)

New Forest Business Partnership 

The New Forest Business Partnership (NFBP) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on supporting local businesses and growing the New Forest economy.

Bringing local business together

NFBP hosts lots of opportunities throughout the year for local businesses to come together, leading to useful connections and contacts, sharing of ideas, collaboration on projects and opportunities for new business. 

Hosting knowledge sharing events to help businesses grow

There is a calendar of events covering topics to help local businesses stay informed and competitive.  Experts in a wide range of topics are invited to share their knowledge and the training materials are then made available to members. 

All events are at cost for New Forest Business Partnership members. Non-members are also welcome to attend.

Breakfast meetings normally run from 7.30 to 9.30 am at various locations across the New Forest.

A dynamic Board who lobby on important issues for local business

The NFBP Board includes representatives from all major business sectors and areas of the New Forest as well as Brockenhurst College, New Forest District Council, New Forest National Park Authority, Hampshire County Council and Totton College. In 2019 the NFBP Board is leading an implementation group to ensure the successful delivery of the New Forest Economic Development Strategy.

Brilliance in Business Awards

Every year the achievements of businesses in the New Forest are celebrated with the Brilliance in Business Awards.  There are eight individual categories in areas such as investment in the workplace, enterprise and innovation, entrepreneurship, development of technologies and green policies and from these winners is selected the New Forest Business of the Year.
