Businesses from across Suffolk and beyond have showcased their products and services at one of East Anglia’s largest annual trade fairs.

The Anglia Business Exhibition, staged by the Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA) in partnership with Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, attracted around 200 exhibitors while a further 30 took stands at a Property, Home & Investment Show held for the first time this year in parallel with the main event.

The new show was held in the main events hall at Trinity Park, with the business exhibition relocating to the marquee which will be used for ringside hospitality at the Suffolk Show later this month, so allowing more firms than ever before to exhibit.

ISSBA chairman James Davey said the exhibition represented the culmination of 12 months’ hard work by many people and he thanked all those involved, a view echoed by Sarah Howard, president of Suffolk Chamber.

The exhibition was officially opened by Harry Drnec, a former chief executive of Red Bull UK under whose leadership its drink sales grew from 3million to 300m cans a year.
