I WOULD like to invite local companies and sole traders to Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s Autumn Business Expo on Thursday, October 10, in association with Hewett Recruitment.

Returning again to the popular Three Counties Showground in Malvern, the Expo is a fantastic opportunity to network and gain key businesses contacts, and raise the profile of your business in the two counties.

At our Spring Business Expo in March, over 850 guests attended on the day, meeting over 120 exhibitors and attending our free morning seminar focusing on ‘Brexit’.

One of the liveliest areas throughout the day is the Food & Drink Producers Zone, sponsored by mfg Solicitors. The zone welcomes a delicious range of local producers from across region, highlighting why Herefordshire and Worcestershire is proud to feature on the national food map.

I am pleased to share that there is still time to take advantage of a free stand in this zone for food producers only. The free stands are available on a first come, first served basis. To find out more information, please contact our Events team on events@hwchamber.co.uk.

The day will also include the morning’s Networking Breakfast, sponsored by Worcestershire Business Central, where I am pleased to reveal the return of Lord Digby Jones as keynote speaker to discuss our current economic climate.

Delegates will then be able to meet and greet all exhibitors on the day, and get involved with the activities on every stand to make those all important connections with like-minded professionals.

Over 60 per cent of stands in the main exhibition hall are now sold, and I’d like to invite those who would like more information about exhibiting to speak to a member of the team on 01905 673600.

Many businesses have experienced growth by joining forces with the Chamber to become an Expo sponsor. If you are interested in supporting the two counties’ biggest business exhibition, please contact Olivia Williams, events and training manager, at OliviaW@hwchamber.co.uk.
