MSZ Business Forum
MSZ Business Forum, in association with Midlothian Business Gateway, launched in December 2020. We host events several times a year on a variety of themes, designed to encourage engagement and collaboration between organisations 'in the zone'. Each event brings together a wide range of businesses to identify shared support needs, collaborative opportunities and share knowledge across the region, signposting to research, expertise and business services with invited guest speakers on themes of benefit to the community in the zone.
Our next MSZ Business Forum will be hosted in February 2023.
Details, theme and venue to be announced.
