Celebrating its 30th birthday this year, Galeri Caernarfon Cyf is a prime example of how supporting social businesses is the best way to strengthen the local economy and infrastructure.
Established in 1992, the social enterprise was formed to improve Caernarfon’s town centre by purchasing and renovating derelict and unwanted shops, offices, and homes. Bringing new life in the form of companies re-locating to Caernarfon, the company had renovated over 20 dormant buildings by 2005 while opening its largest development to date in the form of the £7.5 million Galeri.
Overlooking the Menai Straits on Victoria Dock with Caernarfon Castle just a stone’s throw away, Galeri truly offers delegates one of the best destinations to meet and learn. As a hub for the creative industries, the venue is also home of regular concerts, workshops, and theatre productions.
A committed employer and supporter of the local supply chain, Galeri has contributed over £2.5 million to the Gwynedd and Anglesey economy. By attending its events or bringing their own conference to Galeri, event professionals can also follow the venue in supporting the social enterprise and wider economy.
