Business Focus Exhibition

Peterborough Chamber of Commerce has announced that this year’s Business Focus exhibition will incorporate a Meet the Buyer event, giving local businesses the opportunity to meet face-to-face with key procurement personnel from leading public sector organisations including Peterborough City Council.

The exhibition, which is the largest of its kind in Peterborough, will also include a specialist seminar delivered by Business Link East, which will teach businesses how to give themselves the best possible chance of benefiting from local procurement opportunities.

Helen Bosett, who is organising the event on behalf of Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, said: “The exhibition may still be a little over a month away but businesses are needing little convincing that this is a prime opportunity to bring their products to the forefront of the marketplace. The support of Peterborough City Council in bringing public sector procurement into the arena is definitely a major factor in the level of interest we are experiencing this year. Businesses are queuing up to meet the people at the heart of procurement in organisations such as EEDA, the Fire Service, and Cambridgeshire’s county and district councils.”

Brian Soanes, Managing Director of co-organisers The Business Club, said: “In these more difficult trading conditions Business Focus is a fantastic opportunity for local go-ahead businesses to start moving forward again. The event is totally focussed on making business connections – new customers, new suppliers and re-affirming existing contacts. We are absolutely determined to make this the best Business Focus ever. We organise the event solely for the benefit of local business, encouraging them to do business together and stimulate the local economy. The inclusion this year of Meet the Buyer, with up to 10 public agencies wanting to buy locally adds a new dimension to the event. It will attract even more decision-makers to attend, directly increasing the sales opportunities for exhibitors.”

This is the ninth year that the event has been held in the city, with sponsors including Peterborough City Council, Opportunity Peterborough, Business Link East and Boongate Kia.

If you are looking to move your business forward there are still a few stands available, call Lesley at Business Focus on 01733 513002.
