A conference is being held at the Pool Innovation Centre on October 13th to focus on the business benefits and value of using the Cornish identity and culture.

It will also look at some of the values associated with this term and the background to them.
Speaking at the event will be: Cllr Julian German, portfolio holder for economy and culture on Cornwall Council; Simon Tregoning, owner of Classic Cottages; Ross Williams, director of Cornwall Arts Centre Trust; Jenifer Lowe, programme manager for MAGA – the Cornish Language Partnership and Julie Seyler, cultural programme manager at Cornwall Council.
The conference will be introduced and MCd by Kim Conchie – chief executive of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce
Organiser, Matthew Clarke, said: “Cornwall is recognised around the UK, Europe and even the world on its own merits. People recognise it as a special place apart which has a distinctive culture and history. We are now being handed more and more tools to capitalise on this recognition that countless other places are envious of.
“We would be foolish not to grab this opportunity to make our identity and culture earn us much-needed income.”
