Keeping It Local

The 'friendly local bank manager' has their work cut out now...

25th February 2015

We offer our services out to the entire UK, but sometimes it’s nice to show your local community that you’re in the same neck of the woods. We all like to ‘shop’ locally to support our local community which is why we’re becoming Platinum Sponsors of the largest Suffolk Business Exhibition.

The official sponsors and media partners of this years Anglia Business Exhibition recently gathered at Hintlesham Hall Hotel to officially launch the event, and we’re very pleased to say we are one of them.

The launch event was sponsored by Hintlesham Hall and included a welcome address from James Davey, Chairman of ISSBA and Doug Field from New Anglia LEP.

James Davey, Chairman of ISSBA commented: “We are delighted that The Suffolk Chamber of Commerce has again agreed to be the main Strategic Partner and has been fully behind promoting the event to other potential sponsors. This is fantastic news for the future success and growth of the event.”

He added: “I would also like to thank all of our valued sponsors who are so crucial in being able to deliver such a well respected and attended event.”

In 2015 the exhibition moves from the main Exhibition Hall and the Trinity Rooms where it has previously been held, to the Suffolk Show Presidents Marquee, allowing for even more businesses to exhibit.

Building on the success of the exhibition and the need for more space and networking areas, the new area will be home to 200 stands, networking, refreshments, break out areas, specialist clinics and a special area for sponsors and strategic partners. There will also be a new satelite Property and Investment Show in the main Exhibition Centre to complement the event and allow for the cross polination of visitors from a new business sector.

John Dugmore, Suffolk Chamber of Commerce Exhibitions are one of the most powerful, versatile and cost-effective marketing tools available. They are an important way for companies to showcase what they do and to build their contacts and clients.

John Dugmore, Chief Executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, commented: “The Suffolk Business Exhibition has grown year on year and is recognised as ‘the business event to be seen at’ in Suffolk and to a wider audience across East Anglia. Exhibitions are one of the most powerful, versatile and cost-effective marketing tools available. They are an important way for companies to showcase what they do and to build their contacts and clients. You will find the Exhibition packed with innovation, new products, thought provoking workshops and clinics, as well as tips to give you a competitive edge.”

“We would encourage anyone who wants to do more business to come to the Exhibition. It is good for Suffolk, it is good for our economy and it is good for business.

The Anglia Business Exhibition will be taking place at Trinity Park Ipswich on Wednesday 6th May 2015. We’ll be at Stand No 161 in Zone C, so come and say hello.
