Suffolk Business Exhibition
Published Friday 15th February 2013
Sponsors and media partners recently gathered at Ipswich Town Hall to officially launch this year’s Suffolk Business Exhibition.
The event was sponsored by Ipswich Borough Council and included a welcome address from Councillor Bryony Rudkin, Portfolio-holder for Culture & Leisure. She stressed the important role that events played in boosting the local economy: "Last year our varied programme brought 350,000 visitors into the town and that can only be good news for town centre businesses. One report estimates our cultural programme brought more than £16 million into the local economy."
Arguably one of the county's best-supported business events, the ISSBA Suffolk Business Exhibition 2013 will take place at Trinity Park, Ipswich on Wednesday 1st May.
Roger Barcham, Chairman of ISSBA commented: "We are delighted that The Suffolk Chamber of Commerce has again agreed to be our main Strategic Partner and has worked tirelessly to promote the event to other potential sponsors. We are pleased to announce that Suffolk County Council has agreed to sponsor the event for three years as a main second-tier sponsor. I would also like to thank all of our sponsors who are so crucial in being able to deliver such a well respected and attended event."
"The Suffolk Business Exhibition is a fundamental event on the annual calendar for firms across the county," said John Dugmore the Chief Executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce. "Business is working harder than ever in challenging economic conditions and the exhibition is a great opportunity for firms to come together to find new ways of doing business in the year ahead."
Councillor Judy Terry, Suffolk County Council's Cabinet member for economic development, said: "Suffolk County Council is committed to supporting our businesses to grow and prosper. Events such as the Suffolk Business Exhibition are an important way for our companies to showcase what they do and build up their contacts and clients."
There are a small number of stands still available. Full details, prices and reservations can be made at www.issba.co.uk.
