Excitement building up for EuroConnect business event


The success of Peterborough's two-day EuroConnect business exchange event is growing fast with four weeks left before it opens at the Moat House Hotel on 24 February.

In addition to the 14 nations which will be sending official delegations, Malta and Bulgaria want to send representatives for exploratory talks about new business opportunities which are available.

"Although Malta and Bulgaria are not included among our priority targets, their enthusiasm to attend demonstrates the potential for success embodied in the EuroConnect formula," said Gloria Milne, chief executive of organiser Greater Peterborough Investment Agency.

"We are now also seeing a build-up in the number of visitors from throughout the UK and mainland Europe who are confirming their intention of attending. Some of them have already booked more than 10 meetings each with companies which they believe offer potential for new business ventures."

EuroConnect is being organised under the auspices of the European Union's Interprise programme which is designed to stimulate small and medium sized companies to exploit new markets and trading opportunities.

Under the well-tried and successful formula 70 UK-based companies have had their details published in a catalogue which has been circulated to participating countries and on a special website (www.peterborough.net/euroconnect).

Delegations of business people who are interested in the opportunities being featured will visit EuroConnect for exploratory talks with the host companies. Details of visitors are also being published on the EuroConnect website so that further meetings can be arranged with exhibitors and between visitors during the event.

Delegations will attend from Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the home nations of Northern Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales.

More than 50 people from host companies attended a training seminar at the Moat House Hotel last week (Wednesday 26 January) arranged by GPIA to help them obtain best value from attending EuroConnect.

"All the signs indicate we can expect a very successful event with lots of new business being generated," said Mrs Milne.
