Basildon Business Expo open for bookings
Essex Chambers of Commerce and Basildon Council have joined forces to host Basildon Business Expo 2019 in October following the success of previous events.
This year the occasion takes place at the Holiday Inn, in Basildon, on Thursday, 24 October, from 10am to 3pm, starting with a breakfast networking event from 8.30am to 10am.
Attendees will include members of Basildon businesses, who will hear from the chairman of Basildon Council's External Affairs, Partnerships and Liaison Committee, Councillor Aidan McGurran - who will be speaking about the council's plans for the future of the town and supporting local businesses.
The exhibition will feature a variety of businesses of various types and sizes.
Denise Rossiter, chief executive of Essex Chambers of Commerce, said "Basildon is one of the most enterprising towns in Essex having recently celebrated its 70th birthday as a New Town so it is good to be working with the Borough Council to stage another business expo and highlight what it can offer businesses large and small.
“We look forward to welcoming new and previous exhibitors for what we are sure will be a great day"
Councillor Adele Brown, Basildon Council's chairman of the Infrastructure and Inclusive Growth Committee, added: "We are delighted to continue our partnership with the Essex Chambers of Commerce that shows Basildon is a great place to do business and it's events like this that promote why the borough is a good place to invest.
"Local businesses are already registering to exhibit to showcase what they do, and the Expo is a great event for businesses to share their success stories, network and to hopefully secure more business. I would encourage any businesses who have not already signed up to not leave it too late."
