Previous events have attracted representatives from the travel industry, banking, finance, construction, motors, advertising, marketing, hotel, leisure, accountancy and law. Last year, 10 per cent of pre-registered visitors were from companies with a turnover of £1 million or 50 or more employees.

Mike Monk, event organiser, said: “What sets us apart is that we really care about the experience both our exhibitors and visitors have on the day as we create a day that is full of opportunities to make new contacts and enjoy the many things that are happening on the day. The day will start with a networking breakfast, followed by keynote speakers and seminars, a speed networking session as well as the Network Wall that is a great attraction, plus a café where you can take a break or network with exhibitors and visitors.

“We create a real buzz at our expos and bring good footfall through the door I will be having 70 stands at West Sussex and a new initiative is a Chamber Business Zone at West Sussex supported by Chichester Chamber, Sussex Chamber and Worthing Chamber of Commerce.”
