Businesses across Harwich and Dovercourt are invited to a conference providing an update on the Mayflower 400 project.
The year 2020 marks 400 years since The Mayflower sailed from England to America, sparking what became the United States of America.
To celebrate the occasion and capitalise on the potential benefits, the Mayflower 400 compact includes 14 destinations with a link to the Mayflower working together in a bid to attract American tourists during the anniversary year.
Harwich played an intrinsic role in this iconic story, with the ship and its captain Christopher Jones hailing from the town.
Speakers at the conference will include the chief executive of Mayflower 400 and this is an excellent opportunity for local firms to get involved with the Mayflower 400 project.
The conference takes place on Monday 12 March, at the Harwich International Port Cruise Terminal, from 4.30-7.30pm.
Those interesting in attending are asked to RSVP by March 2 to email@example.com so numbers can be planned for.
