The East Anglian branch of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) held its Small Business Expo at The Forum in Norwich on Wednesday with exhibitors from a variety of sectors.

As well as providing seminars on topics including exit strategy, cyber security and procurement, the event saw businesses share their thoughts and experiences.

FSB regional chairman Salena Dawson said: “When we can get together so many businesses it is a good opportunity for us to use it as a sounding board for how they are feeling and what they want to see.

“There has been a bit of a dip in confidence, while those here are feeling positive, there is a sense of caution and businesses waiting to see if they should make investments or not.”
