    UBM plc Chief Executive Officer David Levin commented: "The best way for us

to support the communities in which we do business is by doing what we do best

- running events. Business4Better UK is part of our Community Engagement Series

around the world, through which we harness the commercial and professional

expertise of our employees and business partners in a not-for-profit

environment to make a real difference. These events highlight the growing

importance of these kinds of partnerships, which benefit all parties involved -

this is the future of sustainable and responsible business."

    Business4Better UK is free to attend for not-for-profits, social

enterprises and businesses. The event is designed for anyone already thinking

about the benefit of partnerships, or who are looking for advice and support

before they take their first steps.

    Over 150 not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises will be

invited to showcase their work and demonstrate 'live' why business should

engage with them, with the aim of partnering with businesses. Additionally,

visitors will be able to explore how to progress a partnership further and meet

those that are looking to start new conversations.

    The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), the largest

umbrella body for the voluntary and community sector in England, have been

confirmed as official partner for Business4Better UK.

    "Charities have long been working with businesses for mutual benefit but

partnership working isn't always easy. We are delighted to be partnering with

UBM on Business4Better UK where charities can learn from one another on how to

get the most out of cross-sector partnerships, and businesses can understand

the many benefits of working with charities as well as their specific needs,"

added, Sir Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive, NCVO.

    If you are an organisation working within the not-for-profit or social

enterprise sector and would like to be part of Business4Better UK this year,
