Hundreds of people from the local business community are expected to visit the Menta Trade Fair today, the launch event of the 2015 Bury St Edmunds & West Suffolk Business Festival.

The event, sponsored by Atkins Thomson Solicitors, will see 120 exhibitors showcasing their goods and services over two floors of exhibition space at The Apex in Bury, with technology firms also presenting new products and ideas in a Digital Lounge area.

Alongside the exhibition, the New Anglia Growth Hub will also be hosting talks covering subjects including apprenticeships, training grants and PR for business.

Event organiser Phil Pethybridge, from Suffolk-based enterprise agency Menta, said: ‘This is our seventh annual exhibition and our biggest event yet. It shows the wide range of growing and start-up businesses Menta are supporting across the county.

“We wish all our exhibitors every success and our thanks to Atkins Thomson Solicitors who, as sponsors make this annual event possible.”

The Menta Trade Fair runs from noon until 6pm and is free to attend for visitors.
