Exhibition is ideal platform for firms
PROMOTE your business and beat the economic downturn – that is the message from Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce.
Their 23rd annual Business to Business Exhibition will take place as usual at the Ashford International Hotel on Wednesday, June 24.
Originally created as an informal gathering at the request of chamber members in order to promote their services and products to each other, it has become one of the premier business events in Kent and attracts exhibitors from throughout the county and beyond.
Exhibitors encompass a whole range of activities and not just those that are immediately associated with commerce.
As well as the familiar services to commerce and industry like business services, recruitment, training and office supplies, there are plenty that cover a much wider field.
Examples at past exhibitions have been wildlife consultants, saving Canterbury Cathedral, a magician, hot air balloons, lifeboats, and driving from go karts to Land Rovers.
With more than 1,000 visitors expected, the business opportunities are immense, and networking possibilities provided make it one of the major business events of the South East’s calendar. In past years deals have been negotiated which have significantly benefited many companies’ trading potential.
Chamber chief executive Jo James said: “For many years we have been developing this exhibition to build it into an event that suits everyone.
“For nearly a quarter of a century we have listened to feedback from exhibitors and visitors, and we have acted on their suggestions. We, and the exhibitors, believe we have all got it just right.
“We tend still to call it a Business to Business Exhibition, but it is more than that. Certainly it meets the business maxim that everyone is a potential customer for somebody, and equally every business is a potential supplier for everybody.
“Whether you are a business person looking for customers, or a customer looking for suppliers, I urge all to come along and visit the exhibition.
“With the current economic and financial difficulties, it is important to promote a company as much as possible. Promotion and marketing are seen as essential contributions to beating the downturn.”
Entry is free to visitors, and the doors are open to the public from 10am to 5pm.
