Businesses from across Norfolk are set to head for an major business exhibition event in Norwich this month aimed at bringing potential trading partners together and boosting trade.
Norfolk Chamber’s B2B Exhibition at Norwich City Football club features presentation from a range of Norfolk Business leaders - including new best practice sessions featuring 10 minute inspirational talks from ‘big thinkers’, and there are sessions on investment tips for businesses, and online marketing.
The exhibition on October 17 comes as the chamber figures highlight improved performance and confidence in the last quarter among Norfolk’s service sector and manufacturers, despite a drop in exports from manufacturing firms.
In fact the British Chamber of Commerce’s quarterly economic survey, made up of responses from more than 7,400 businesses shows improvements in most key areas for both manufacturing and services compared with the second quarter.
Caroline Williams Chief Executive Norfolk Chamber of Commerce said: “We have been delivering quality B2B exhibitions for 15 years and this one is going to be the best ever.
“We’re all aiming to do better business, and we’re all doing more digitally. But being with the best, and meeting face to face, is something that never fails to deliver. We’re making sure that you’ll have the opportunity to meet the very best of the region’s businesses, and discover the outstanding products and services they have to offer. Access exclusive on-stand promotions and excellent networking opportunities.
Better and easier to navigate zones means you’ll quickly find your way to the areas that interest you most. We’re also holding three 45 mins workshops packed full of expert advice delivered by the best to help you become better in key areas essential for our business.
New for 2013, ‘Best Practise ‘sessions will take place every half hour when 9 Norfolk’s Big Thinkers will share their secrets of success. Learn from the best
