Latest Press Release about #CCBiz: Connect Business Day grows with local economy

Connect Business Day grows with local economy

A business-boosting event featuring inspiring speakers, entrepreneurs and expert exhibitors is expanding by 50 per cent for 2014.

Connect Business, now in its fourth year, has moved to a bigger venue in Cheltenham and sold out of exhibition space three months in advance.

The free-to-attend event will see keynote addresses by Martin Horwood MP, Steve Knibbs, Gloucestershire Reporter for BBC Points West and Luan Wise and Fiona Spencer from the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

There will also be a panel discussion about how to grow your business with three successful local entrepreneurs – Simone Hindmarch-Bye of Commercial Group, Clare Holland of Keith Holland and Associates and Louise Ladbrooke of Business West.

The event will be opened by Cheltenham’s mayor Simon Wheeler and will also see established business people from across the county passing on their knowledge and advice.

Connect Business is organised by community group Cheltenham Connect. It brings together more than 200 people, from leading business experts to new and growing Cheltenham businesses, aiming to encourage networking and local sourcing in Gloucestershire.

Organiser Belinda Wilson urged everyone with an interest in business to snap up a free ticket as they are disappearing fast.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other local companies and discuss how we can help each other to achieve our business objectives. Whether you are looking for advice on social media, a fresh new designer or an experienced recruiter who can help you find the best local talent, this Cheltenham event will have people who can help.”

The event takes place at the new location of The Pavilion, Hatherley Lane, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire GL51 6PN, on Thursday 25th September 2014 from 10am to 3pm. Visitors will be able to network throughout the day and over an informal lunch.
