CREME'S 19th Annual Ethnic Minority Business Conference

CREME conference

The Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) held its 19th Annual Ethnic Minority Business Conference at the stunning Fazeley Studios venue in Birmingham on Tuesday 20 October.

Building on its success of the past 18 years, this is the UK’s benchmark event on diversity and entrepreneurship. The event showcased new developments in research and practice in the fields of diversity and enterprise.

With many entrepreneurs and business owners attending the conference - together with policy makers, academics and key local and national figures - this was an opportunity to hear about how the research makes a real difference to practitioners and entrepreneurs from all communities.

Headed by Professor Monder Ram OBE, CREME has built up an enviable reputation regionally, nationally and internationally for its pioneering research and business engagement activities promoting diversity and enterprise. Based in the University of Birmingham’s Business School, CREME delivers leading-edge expertise on business support for ethnic minority entrepreneurs.

Prof. Ram commented, "We’re delighted to have hosted our 19th CREME conference. Each year the conference builds on the success of the previous year. This year’s was a resounding success, held in the inspiring Fazeley Studios, we welcomed a record number of esteemed guests and trended #2 in Birmingham on Twitter. We look forward to welcoming everyone to the Annual CREME Conference once again next year."
