The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily - By JOHN KRALEVICH john.kralevich@pe­ter­bor­oughto­ *Peter­bor­oughet

A NEW ini­tia­tive launched by the or­gan­is­ers of this year’s East of Eng­land Show has gained the sup­port of ma­jor city or­gan­i­sa­tions and The Evening Tele­graph.

In a move to re-en­gage with the busi­ness com­mu­nity, they have set up the Show Busi­ness Hub, which will open on Fri­day, July 6 with a spe­cial busi­ness break­fast sup­ported by Op­por­tu­nity Peter­bor­ough, the Peter­bor­ough Cham­ber of Com­merce, or­gan­is­ers of Busi­ness Fo­cus 2012 and The Evening Tele­graph.

A pro­gramme of guest speak­ers and pre­sen­ta­tions is planned, and those at­tend­ing will be en­cour­aged to stay at the show and net­work through­out the day.

A busi­ness hub vip hos­pi­tal­ity mar­quee will be avail­able all three days of the show, of­fer­ing com­pli­men­tary re­fresh­ments to lo­cal busi­ness peo­ple, spon­sored by the newly re-branded Peter­bor­ough Arena.

“There will be op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­pa­nies to buy dis­play space in the Busi­ness Hub hos­pi­tal­ity area, or they can hire their own ad­join­ing mar­quee as part of what we be­lieve will even­tu­ally be­come a busi­ness vil­lage,” said An­drew Rid­ding­ton, show com­mit­tee chair­man.

“We would like to see the hub de­vel­op­ing to be­come an in­te­gral part of the city’s an­nual busi­ness diary.

“It is de­signed to cel­e­brate busi­ness suc­cess and show­case the op­por­tu­ni­ties avail­able in and around Peter­bor­ough, and we are de­lighted it has the back­ing of Op­por­tu­nity Peter­bor­ough, the Cham­ber of Com­merce, Busi­ness Fo­cus 2012 and the city’s news­pa­per.”

John Bridge, chief ex­ec­u­tive, Peter­bor­ough Cham­ber of Com­merce, wel­comed the ini­tia­tive say­ing: “Any op­por­tu­nity that en­cour­ages com­pa­nies to net­work and show­case their ser­vices to one an­other should be ap­plauded and sup­ported.”

Op­por­tu­nity Peter­bor­ough’s Neil Dar­win said: “The show is a ma­jor event in the area’s events cal­en­dar and it has a long his­tory of bring­ing busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions to­gether. We are de­lighted to sup­port it.”
