New council business centre to host an open day as part of Humber Business Week activities

By East Riding of Yorkshire Council | Posted: 31 May 2018

Local businesses are being invited to come along to an Open Day at East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s newest business centre, ergo, on Wednesday, 6 June, between 10am-3pm, as part of Humber Business Week.

The circa £4 million development is situated at the heart of the Energy Estuary, in a prime location on the Bridgehead business park, in Hessle.

Operated by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, in partnership with the University of Hull, ergo provides flexible modern office space and conference facilities with on-site parking. It is set to quickly establish itself as the region’s premier office space.

Centre residents, Green Port Business Support Team and Team Humber Marine Alliance, along with teams from the University of Hull will focus on creating a collaborative working environment, building a business community to make the most of opportunities within the renewable and environmental technology sectors and help to establish the region as a leading centre for renewable energy.

As well as an opportunity to tour the new building, those attending will be able to discuss ways of reducing their own carbon footprint and become more energy efficient with exhibitors as well as network with representatives from businesses who have been successful in working within the sector and access information from the on-site teams to support business growth.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “The ergo centre open day is the perfect opportunity to come along and see what this amazing new facility has to offer your business.

“Our staff will be on hand to answer questions and show you around and we will also have a number of exhibitors providing a range of goods and services designed to make businesses greener.”

Amanda Hoggart, business centre manager, said: “Humber Business Week showcases the wealth of talent, entrepreneurship, vision and future potential of the region – so it is only fitting that ergo should officially open against such a backdrop. Interest in the centre is growing and we look forward to officially opening our doors and providing a series of guided tours during the open day.”

Moe’s Kitchen café, also based within ergo, offers a great cup of coffee and fresh and tasty homemade food. The café is open to the public Monday to Friday, 7.30am-3pm.
