FSB tries to play an active role in every aspect of local business life which is why we aim to support the biggest business shows throughout our region.
During May and June, we were actively involved in four major local shows where we hosted stands to meet our members and local stakeholders as well as providing a place for potential new members to sign up.
Firstly, we hosted a stand at the inaugural South Glos Expo at the Bristol and Bath Science Park and then in the middle of May we took a key role in the two biggest events in the region so far this year; the Bristol-based Business Showcase SouthWest and the annual two-day Gloucestershire Business Show.
At the Bristol event at Ashton Gate, our Bristol Membership Advisor Dave Battrick and Regional Chairman Ken Simpson hosted a stand and on the same day, our Gloucestershire Membership Advisor Mark Whittle teamed up with Development Manager Sam Holliday at the Cheltenham-based Gloucestershire county show. Later in June, Sam and Mark joined forces again at the ‘Growing Gloucestershire’ conference at the county’s university.
With more shows planned for later in the year, FSB will do its best to have a presence again to show our commitment to the local business community.
