Suffolk Coast Business, the not-for-profit organisation which provides business support for small and medium-sized firms, is holding its fourth annual conference at Ufford Park Hotel, near Woodbridge, on Wednesday, March 23, from 9am to 2.30pm.

The theme for this year’s event is Routes to Market, with the aim of helping businesses to find their niche, develop and grow.

Chartered accountants Ensors, law firm Marshall Hatchick, enterprise agency Menta and Suffolk Coastal council are sponsoring the event.

Alyson Tipping, project coordinator at Suffolk Coast Business, said: “The aim of this event is to support and advise small and micro businesses in the Suffolk Coast region and this is reflected in the quality of the speakers and the variety of trade stands attending.

“It’s great to see local businesses willing to support and work in partnership with other local organisations and this is reflected in our dedicated returning sponsors Ensors, Suffolk Coastal District Council and Menta; we’re also thrilled to have gained the support of Marshall Hatchick and look forward to growing this partnership.

Small business owner Heather Carroll, who attended last year’s event, said: “I booked early this year as I found the event to be very inspirational and motivating, a great way to create new business contacts, network and generate new ideas to develop my own business.

“The keynote speaker, business masterclasses and stand holders are all on hand to help you develop your business making it a must attend event for any small business owner.”
