Graham Barton, ISSBA chair, explained: “The Anglia Business Exhibition began as the ISSBA Trade Fair many years ago with just a handful of stands, but has grown to become a premier B2B event in our region.  

“We are extremely proud to give our business community the chance to promote what they do, make connections and generate new business. Thank you to everyone that has supported the exhibition over the years, especially our sponsors as we couldn’t run the event without them. We can’t wait to see you there!” 

The exhibition opens at 10am and runs until 5pm. Visit www.angliabusinessexhibition.com to find out more and pre-register for your free visitor place.
