Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s Business Expo was delighted to welcome so many local businesses to the Three Counties Showground last week for the Spring Business Expo, sponsored by Hewett Recruitment.
The bi-annual event welcomed 800 delegates on the day, who were able to network with the 120 exhibitors and attend the free seminars with leading business influencers. The Chamber received fantastic feedback from visitors who were impressed with Callum Gill, Head of Insight & Innovation at drp, and his speech on the future of communication in a world of smart phones.
The Chamber was also pleased to welcome Mark Wright, winner of BBC One’s The Apprentice who impressed seminar attendees with his journey from applying for the hit TV show through to owning his successful business “The Climb”.
This year’s Spring Expo saw the return of the popular Food & Drink Producer’s Zone, where businesses were able to break away and network whilst sampling the delicious local produce on offer throughout the day.
In tribute to the Chamber’s recent The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies award, guests were invited to celebrate the accolade on the Chamber’s Membership stand with a specially designed and made cake by Brookes Catering.
Speaking of his first time at the Business Expo, Tim Gaunt, Chief Executive Officer at The Site Doctor, said: “We already feel that the Expo has helped raise The Site Doctor’s profile within Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and we’re hopeful that we’ll be building Chamber Member websites soon – time will tell.
“We feel that the Expo was well run, and the key note speakers were interesting and relevant in the current economic climate. We would definitely recommend attending if you’d like to raise awareness of your business!”
Coverage of the speeches from the day and all photographs are available to view on the Chamber’s Facebook page at Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber looks forward to welcoming everyone to the Autumn Expo in October, more information can be found on their website here.
