Make Bishop's Stortford Means Business part of your company's coronavirus recovery plans in October 2020 at Rhodes Arts Complex




Firms will be hoping for a post-coronavirus boost come the autumn so the 20th Bishop's Stortford Means Business should prove very timely.

The long-running exhibition, which provides businesses and visitors with the chance to make contacts and meet prospective new clients and suppliers, is scheduled to return to Rhodes Arts Complex on Wednesday October 14.

Over half of the 60 stands have already been booked, and the speakers at the popular free seminars will be announced in due course.

Organiser Bob Lee said: "When we come to the end of this Covid-19 episode, businesses will need to act to rebuild their market and to reconnect with previous customers.

"The timing of BSMB 20, on October 14, should make it the perfect event for inclusion in a marketing recovery plan.

"The website – www.bsmb.co.uk – shows stand bookings to date and what is still available. We are still open to receive enquiries and bookings. In the event that BSMB does not go ahead for any reason, there will be a 100% refund of any money paid for taking part.

"We anticipate that this will be a hugely successful event in the wake of these difficult times we are currently experiencing."

The 2019 event proved as popular as ever, with firms taking the opportunity to showcase themselves to more than 300 visitors on the day.

"The event is a fantastic opportunity to network, see some familiar faces and lots of new ones," said Sarah Frost, service administrator at Three Counties Refrigeration.

"I had such a good day and it is a genuinely enjoyable event."

BSMB, which is free for visitors to attend, is sponsored by London Stansted Airport and East Herts Council while the Indie is media partner.

Telecommunications company MLCS Ltd attended the event for the first time in 2019, and managing director Mike Luxford said: "I just wanted to say thanks for an excellent event.

"We have spoken to many people and have a great many opportunities to follow up, a few of which are very exciting indeed."

As well as the seminars, a free speed networking event will be taking place. More details will be announced in the summer.

"BSMB has given us a great chance to network and build strong relationships – last year was no different," said Kat Pulford from the St Elizabeth's Centre.

"The event was informative, full of opportunity and a great place to celebrate with local businesses the fantastic work we are doing at the centre."
