The Warrington Business Conference 2021 will be held in the multi million pound Time Square development.

This amazing development, home to Warrington Market and Cookhouse, Cineworld, Gravity and the University of Chester was completed in 2020. But it's only now that we can unveil it, giving you the opportunity to tour around this superb development followed by networking opportunities, presentations and panel interviews.

Enjoy lunch at the Botanist where you will have another chance to network with other local business people.
