The Salute to Brant Business event will cover topics and feature speakers that will discuss the challenges business owners faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, highlight means of support for local businesses and discuss industry trends.

“In a year unlike anything previously experienced with losses suffered locally and around the globe, we also experienced examples of unprecedented ingenuity, perseverance, resolve and learning,” said Russell Press, Director of Economic Development and Tourism for the County of Brant. “Within the business community of the County of Brant, we certainly have our examples for each of these and now is the time to share our stories. We also want to assure local businesses, our team remains ready and capable of providing support and expertise to the business community of Brant.”

The three sessions will cover the following topics:

  • September 7, 2021 – Brant businesses that have successfully pivoted during the pandemic;
  • September 14, 2021 – Ongoing support and networks for Brant businesses;
  • September 21, 2021 – How markets and businesses may look moving forward.

Following the conclusion of the September 21 session, attendees will be taken through a virtual “Tasty Tour” with local Brant business owners Spicy Jan of Tasty Road Trips and Lori Brown of Hidden Root Farms.
