Healthy incentive to pre-register for Business Focus exhibition

PETERBOROUGH businesses planning to attend next month’s Business Focus exhibition are being encouraged to pre-register online where they will be entered into a draw to win an Apple iPad worth £429.

The offer is open not just to visitors of the exhibition but also to local businesspeople who wish to attend one or more of the free seminars or Meet the Buyer appointments being held during the day.

Helen Bosett, who is organising the event on behalf of Peterborough Chamber of Commerce, said: “It’s always really useful for us to know how many people are planning to attend the exhibition as it assists us with our organisation on the day, and of course it means that we can let visitors know beforehand which seminars are already fully booked so that no-one leaves the event disappointed.

“The Apple iPad is a popular piece of kit for businesses of all sizes, so hopefully it will prove to be a successful incentive to get people pre-registering ahead of the exhibition on Wednesday 13 October.”

This will be the tenth consecutive year that the Business Focus exhibition has taken place in Peterborough and this year the event has been extended to include six free business development seminars and one-to-one procurement advice and support.

Visitors will be able to pick up advice on how to create a successful social media campaign, how to apply proven growth strategies to manage businesses through the downturn and even ways to maximise the performance of a company website.

Brian Soanes, Managing Director of co-organisers The Business Club, added: “To celebrate our tenth anniversary we wanted Business Focus to be bigger and more beneficial for visitors and exhibitors than ever before. With the introduction of such wide-ranging free seminars, and of course the return of Meet the Buyer appointments with key public sector bodies and other large organisations, we’re confident of record-breaking visitor numbers next month.”
