David Hughes, chief executive of the council, said: "Government wants local authorities such as ourselves to be a conduit between it and businesses.
"This event gave us a chance to highlight key measures our local businesses should be taking now to be ready for Brexit, such as business continuity planning, planning ahead for possible disruption that might impact on staff, supplies and distribution networks."
Mr Hughes added: "We are also keen to feed any concerns and suggestions back to government."
