The BHMB18 Exhibition will take place next Friday, 4th May, at The King’s Church in Victoria Road.
We have a 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. 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.
You can see the full list of companies exhibiting here
BHBPA Member Garry Perkins of Sussex First Aid Courses will be doing demonstrations of basic first aid including management of cardiac arrest in the workplace and use of defibrillators. There will be two sessions, each of about 30 minutes, at 1pm and 2pm, and numbers will be limited to 20 per session. If you would like to sign up for this you can sign for the 1pm session here …and for the 2pm session here
If you wish to sign up for the presentations by three women speakers, Anya Ledwith, Angela Gill and Rosemary French, please do so here
Refreshments will be provided by The King’s Centre cafe, and there will be other food items available during the day as well from various stands, 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 if at all possible as we try to avoid the parking difficulties we had in 2016.
We are looking forward to an interesting and successful day. Do come down and join us in celebrating Burgess Hill Business.
"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."
"“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.”"
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
