A SHOWPIECE event for North Somerset’s business community will be taking place in February – and there’s still time for your firm to get involved.

Puxton Park will host the North Somerset Business Show, an event designed to showcase the quality and diversity of companies in the area.

The event – backed by the Mercury – is the first of its type to be held in the area in the past five years, and is already causing a stir in the business community.

Ian Williams, events director with C4 events, which is putting the show together, told the Mercury he hoped this ground-breaking event would lead to even bigger things.

He said: “The show has already attracted a lot of exhibitor interest, some of which has been on the back of the very successful North Somerset Wedding Shows that we have been running over the past couple of years.

“We aim the make the North Somerset Business Show equally successful, with a view to making it a regular feature in the local business calendar.”

The show is being run with support from the economic development team at North Somerset Council and the North Somerset Enterprise Agency.

Exhibitor prices are being kept low to ensure businesses of all sizes are able to get involved, with further reductions on offer for firms based in North Somerset.

Companies already signed up include Puxton Park, the Grand Pier, Towens, Cadbury House and more, touching on business areas including training, waste management, cleaning, health and safety and event management.

Ian continued: “I am gratified by the frequent calls I get from businesses commending the initiative.

“Only this morning, I had a call from Andy Towen who has decided to exhibit - not because of what his firm might gain from the show, but to support the event overall.

“We also have at least two new companies who are using the show to launch onto the market.”

The event will run from 2-7pm on February 2. To get involved, visit
