 2023 Business Walk
October 24th, 8:30am-12pm

Taking the Pulse of the Region’s Business Climate 

In its fourth year, the Greater Newport Business Walk brings together business owners with elected officials, government representatives and economic development organizations to gather feedback on the business environment.

 

This year we will be visiting businesses in Newport County - Jamestown, Little Compton, Middletown, Newport, Portsmouth and Tiverton.

Small teams of volunteers will be visiting businesses between 8:30am-12pm on October 24th to conduct a brief interview that will take about 15-20 minutes. Information gathered from the interviews will be included with the results of our annual business survey.

 

Showcase your business and share your feedback on what it's like to do business here. Space is limited - sign up today!
