Of the three local business Expos we have taken part in over the years, this one is probably our favourite. It’s now in its eighth year, and we are proud to have supported it since the outset in 2006.
It’s not a big fancy Showcase – it doesn’t try to be overambitious, but it really works. While, for example, the Salisbury Expo was hugely flashy, it was clear too expensive and the whole thing collapsed. In contrast, the Stonehenge Business 2 Business Showcase seems to improve year-on-year.
It’s very friendly and needless to say, we’ve already booked our stand there.
When does it take place? It’s on Thursday, 18th September 2014 and takes place at Antrobus House in Amesbury.
This year the Business to Business showcase will be opened by Councillor Jane Scott, Leader of Wiltshire Council.
There may still be a couple of very reasonably priced stands left if you hurry – but if not, it still worth coming along to meet a whole host of local Amesbury, Salisbury, and Wiltshire-based businesses – because admission to visit the event is FREE!
Not only is entry free – but refreshments are kindly provided by the Chamber of Trade’s supporters free of charge – based on previous years, there are some pretty yummy things – this year, apparently you can enjoy sweet treats thanks from Dazzle and Bake, canapés courtesy of The Antrobus Arms Hotel, and afternoon tea courtesy from the Holiday Inn.
Free food and drink – free networking and a friendly welcome – what more could you want. See you there.
Tim Bishop, Bonallack and Bishop
