Norfolk Chamber of Commerce chief executive Caroline Williams issued the vote of confidence at a business to business event at Norwich City Football Club yesterday.

It came as she said this year’s Norfolk Chamber B2B Exhibition was the busiest yet, thanks to the advertising power of social media.

“We have been doing this for 15 years and it’s always positive, but I think we have gone up a notch,” she said.

“The feedback has been about how busy and vibrant the exhibition has been.

“It shows the business community is feeling more confident about the future and is looking for new suppliers, new innovative products and is just being more proactive and looking outside their business.”

This year, 90 stall holders showcased their businesses at the event, aimed to encourage face-to-face networking.

The event featured presentations from industry leaders and zones covering areas including promotion and marketing, advice and finance, hospitality and leisure, technology, HR and training and enterprise and innovation.

Among those exhibiting was Jill Watkinson, centre manager at The Space in Sprowston, who said: “It is always nice to make new connections and meet a whole load of people. It means we can engage and talk to people about what we can do.”
