Who are ISSBA?

ISSBA provides a forum for the mutual support of small businesses in Ipswich and surrounding parts of Suffolk, in the east of England. It is an informal organisation of business owners and others involved with small businesses, funded by sponsorship, members' subscriptions and organised by an elected committee.

The Anglia Business Exhibition’s demand for stands has been phenomenal and we are pleased to announce that all indoor stands are now sold out! We just have a few additional outside spaces still available.

The great news is that the App can be downloaded free onto your mobile devices and is packed full of great information on ISSBA and the Anglia Business Exhibition, their flagship annual business exhibition.

The App has been carefully designed by local company, PC Futures, in response to the growing use of smart phones and mobile devices used by businesses across the region.
