Organisers of the Anglia Business Exhibition, being held in Ipswich in May, will be using the latest registration technology to help exhibitors and visitors connect with their customers.

The Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA), which stages the annual event in partnership with Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, is working with interactive event solutions firm Blendology, whose branded “oneTap” badges help participants to engage with their customers in real life at the event or online.

James Davey, chairman of ISSBA, said: “We have decided to invest in this amazing registration and connect software, and can see the benefits that it will not only bring to us as the organisers, but for our exhibitors and visitors too.

“This also shows our commitment to the growth and success of the exhibition. More information on this new technology will be published later and we can’t wait to announce the equipment’s full functionality.”

The Anglia Business Exhibition takes place at Trinity Park, Ipswich, on Wednesday, May 7, with additional exhibition space in a newly-introduced marquee area now open for bookings.

Mr Davey said: “We are also delighted to announce that the marquee is now open for stand bookings. New for this year, positioned between the main exhibition centre and the Trinity Rooms, the marquee will be a prime area to exhibit. With the main exhibition centre sold out, demand for stands in the marquee will be high.”

A few stands are also still available in the Trinity Rooms, which has been designated as the Business Start Up Area.
