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.
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“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! ” "
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
