Event Highlights

This year’s theme was all about Supporting Local – buying from local businesses, supporting each other, and keeping more of our spending in the local economy. 

Regeneration Update

Swansea Regeneration Update

Exciting new visitor attractions, slick new office spaces and initiatives to attract new traders were just some of the things discussed in the Swansea Regeneration Update at the Swansea Conference.

Independent Retail

Independent Retail

City centre retailers with a stronger online presence, an increased appetite for visiting physical shops, and the promise of increased footfall in the city centre created a positive picture during a panel discussion at the Swansea Conference.

Local Food

Local Food & Drink

What are the challenges faced by local food producers, and how can we get more local food onto local plates?

Local Arts

Creativity in Swansea

An initiative to create a new creative network for Swansea was announced at this year’s Swansea Conference in a panel discussion that also explored the city’s cultural assets and how to make the most of them.


If you’re a city centre retailer, a regional business, a community project or a not-for-profit organisation, the Swansea Conference is the perfect place to raise your profile and make connections. Registration for the 2024 Conference is now open!
