An international jewellery designer is set to talk to Suffolk firms at a free networking event.

Brunch Means Business will launch the ninth annual MENTA Trade Fair on October 3 and is expected to attract more than 150 business people.

Suffolk-born Alex Monroe, a London-based international jewellery designer who has a home in Suffolk, is the keynote speaker and will share his insights into building a successful brand.

“The county has a vibrant business community and the day will be a great opportunity for companies to showcase their goods and services,” he said. “There is a massive amount of creativity locally and it is sure to be an inspiring day. I’m looking forward to meeting new people and learning more about some of the great companies in the region.”

The brunch, at 11am at the Apex, Bury St Edmunds, takes place prior to the fair which starts at noon. To book, visit
