Potential visitors to the first-ever Mid-Suffolk Business Exhibition are being urged to register, with the event now only just over a month away.

March 21, quickly sold out after being opened up to non-members of the chamber last October.

A programme of seminars is also being held alongside the exhibition, with places free of charge but limited to those who have registered as a visitor.

Seminar topics will include “Making Your Business Work Smarter”, to be presented by Kevin Kent, and “Oh no, not GDPR again!” a view of the new data protection rules to be presented by Dave Baker of Performance Plus.

The first 100 people who register will also be assured of receiving a “goody bag” on the day, containing a range of information, samples and vouchers from exhibitors and other local businesses.

Danny Cuff, exhibition co-ordinator, said: “We are constantly being contacted from local businesses who have heard about the event from other networking groups in the area and this thirst for a Mid Suffolk Business Exhibition is one that should transfer into a very busy event.

“Make sure to come along to avoid missing out on meeting a large number of businesses operating in Mid Suffolk whilst they are all under one roof.”

Besides showcasing businesses in central Suffolk, the event also aims to build awareness of The Mix which works to support young people in times of crisis and when first starting out in working life.

Allan Scott, who chairs the Stowmarket & District Chamber of Commerce, added: “We’re delighted with the enthusiastic response to this brand new venture from local enterprises, and we’re looking forward to a busy and successful event.

“The Mix is an outstanding venue, and the show will feature the cream of local business so don’t miss out! The exhibition is open to all, and all are very welcome.”

Sponsors of the exhibition, which will run from 9am until 1pm, include Andrew Bingham Funeral Services, Kevin Kent Wealth Management and Chicane Voice & Data. To register, or for more information, visit
