The Burgess Hill Means Business Exhibition is now one week away and preparations are complete. The timetable for the day’s event, including official opening at 11am, visits from local schools, presentations from great speakers and first aid demonstrations as well should tell you all you need to know. It promises to be an interesting and successful day, and I hope that you are planning to make the most of it, whether you are exhibiting or coming to engage as a business person with 70 other businesses.
The take up of stands has been phenomenal; we are full with one or two on the waiting list too. You can see the full list of companies exhibiting here.
Refreshments will be provided by The King’s Centre cafe, and there will be other food items available during the day as well, no doubt.
Exhibitors have been asked not to bring cars on the day, so there should be parking places available for visitors. Exhibitors will know that they must set up on the previous day as we try to avoid the parking difficulties we had some years ago.
In the coming weeks we shall ask you to sign up for various events on the day. It promises to be a very good day for local business.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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. "
"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."
