Prime Minister, RT Hon. David Cameron, officially opened the International Festival for Business 2014 in Liverpool this week. As the biggest business festival this country has seen in more than 60 years, Chester Zoo is delighted to have the opportunity to host an event within it, in association with Marketing Cheshire and Cheshire West and Chester Council.
We’d love you to join us for drinks and canapés from 5pm on the 26 June. At 6pm we’ll give a presentation about our new Islands development, which will have a significantly positive impact on the region’s economy. The £30 million extension to Chester Zoo will open in May 2015.
As a conservation charity, our mission at Chester Zoo is to be a major force in conserving biodiversity worldwide. It is something we are so passionate about that we invest more than one million pounds each year in field conservation programmes on a global scale, from protecting rhinos in Kenya from poaching threats, to educating communities in India to reduce human-elephant conflict.
As the UK’s most visited wildlife attraction, welcoming over 1.4 million visitors per year, we have an incredibly valuable opportunity to bring these projects to life to people, many of whom are far removed from the day to day battles we fight to protect endangered species around the world.
From May 2015, each of those visitors will be able to make their own personal conservation journey around the islands of South East Asia, as we open Islands at Chester Zoo, one of the most amazing zoo developments the UK has ever seen.
Please RSVP to Caroline Sanger-Davies, Head of Marketing via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by end of the day Tuesday 24 June.
