Graham Barton said ‘I’ve been involved with Anglia Business Exhibition for many years as an exhibitor, sponsor and now as ISSBA Chair. The launch event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our sponsors and supporters, without which we wouldn’t be able to provide such an exciting platform to champion our local businesses. ISSBA has always had a strong ethos of supporting local businesses and the Anglia Business Exhibition does just that by providing a range of opportunities for them to build their brand and flourish, whether they choose to sponsor, exhibit or attend as a visitor.’

Ipswich Borough Council have supported ISSBA and the Anglia Business Exhibition for many years. Cllr Colin Kreidewolf added ‘I was very pleased to be able to attend the launch of the Anglia Business Exhibition in the delightful setting of Seckford Hall. ABE is an important event in the local calendar providing a great opportunity for local businesses to showcase themselves and network with likeminded organisations. IBC is delighted to be able to support this event again this year.’

The launch event was sponsored by Cameron Ventures Group who work in partnership with Seckford Hall Hotel & Spa. Group Sales Manager, Amanda-Jane Frank commented ‘We were delighted to sponsor this event and demonstrate some of what we can offer. Anglia Business Exhibition provides a great opportunity for our group of hotels and Suffolk businesses. I would like to wish everyone a very successful exhibition and we look forward to seeing everyone there in May.’

Anglia Business Exhibition will be held on 13th May at Trinity Park, Ipswich. Organised by ISSBA (Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association), the event is in its 24th year and has become one of the most prestigious and well supported events in the local business calendar. The exhibition will showcase over 90 exhibitors and will begin with a keynote speaker breakfast with speed networking and pre-bookable workshops to follow later in the day.
