A ‘networking event’ will be taking place on Wednesday 24 September 2014 at the Burton Market Hall. This event has been organised in partnership with Santander to provide businesses with the opportunity to raise the profile of their business, networking with other local businesses from the area, seek expert advice and guidance and build strong meaningful business relationships.
The event is running between 11:00am and 4:00pm. There are no attendance fees and no future commitment is required. This is not a market day for selling products but is an opportunity to showcase and promote local businesses.
Cllr Robert Hardwick, Deputy Leader for Cultural Services said: “We are really pleased to be playing host to this event and working with Santander. It is great to be able to offer local small businesses advice as to how they can start up or improve on the business they already have.
“This is a really worthwhile event, there are already a large number of businesses attending the event and we would like to encourage more”.
Amanda Williamson, Santander Local Business Manager said: “One of my roles within Santander is to support and network with my local business community.
When I moved over to the Burton Branch at the beginning of July, the Market Hall was just being re-launched and was attracting some negativity around the town. That is when I chose to contact the Council to see how we could work together, showcase the facilities on offer to small businesses within the Market and generally create more awareness of the fabulous Market Hall itself.
The Burton Business Showcase is just the first of many initiatives that we have planned for the venue. The purpose of this is to encourage like minded business people to get together, network and showcase what they have to offer to the Town. It is also a chance for business people to see what is available to support them in starting up new business ventures or enhancing a business they already have”.
