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.
"“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! ” "
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
