News: BHMB Exhibition 2018

Posted on 3rd January 2018

This is an invitation to you to take an exhibition stand on Friday May 4th 2018, when we shall stage another Burgess Hill Means Business event at The King’s Centre in Victoria Road, Burgess Hill.

This will certainly be the largest networking event of the year in Mid Sussex; we intend to fill the venue with 70+ stands as we have in the recent past. There will be no other event here this year which brings together so many local business people on the same day.

As you will know, there was no BHMB exhibition in 2017, as we put on the BHBiz Awards Night in May instead. So we are very keen to get back to the exhibition, which has proved to be so popular and successful since 2009.

We anticipate that the event will run from 11am until 3pm, and the cost of a stand will be the same as last year – indeed it will be the same as in 2010! – that is £50 for members and £150 for non-members. Regular stands comprise a 6ft table and a chair, but it may be possible to access some 8ft tables later for a slightly higher price. At the moment we are asking you simply to sign up for a stand.

So please put the date in your diary – Friday May 4th – and book a place at the biggest and best networking event in the area this year by emailing me with a simple ‘yes’ as soon as possible.

Many thanks for your support, as always. Full details to follow in due course.

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
