Businesses line up for St Neots debut business showcase event.
St Neots debut Business Showcase day will take place in the Market Square on Friday 12th July between 11am and 2pm.
More than 30 local businesses will come out onto the Market Square for this special showcase day to promote their products and services to new audiences.
The idea for this event sprung from St Neots’ Town Team, which is a group of Town Centre stakeholders working collectively to focus on deliverable initiatives to improve St Neots Town Centre. Many businesses expressed interest in having the opportunity to take part.
The Business Showcase is being organised by St Neots Town Council in partnership with Huntingdonshire Chambers of Commerce who understand the need for such an event in the town to recognise and celebrate the many businesses successes in St Neots.
Businesses from across the town representing a wide breadth of industry sectors will be taking over the Market Square on Friday 12th July to raise awareness of their products and services and widen their client base by attracting new customers and reaching new markets.
Many of the businesses will be distributing samples and promoting special offers as well.
Come along to St Neots Market Square on 12th July to browse the exhibitors’ stalls. Whether you are visiting as an individual or for business needs there is sure to be a service or product that you are looking for.
Businesses taking part as below:
Graham Smith, Chair of Huntingdonshire Chamber of Commerce said: “The Chamber is really pleased to be working in partnership with the Town Centre Team to showcase St Neots’ businesses. It would be great if the Business Showcase became an annual event.”
Katie Williams Town Centre Manager said: “We are delighted to be putting on this unique event for the town. It’s a great chance for businesses to come together to showcase the best of what St Neots has to offer. There are so many businesses successes in the town and we hope to make this an annual event”
Four Counties Insurance one of the participating businesses is urging local residents and businesses to 'Keep Trade Local' following recent research by the British Retail Consortium revealing that, nationally, thousands of small independent shops have been closing at an alarming rate with more than one in 10 shops empty. This is the highest figure since it began collecting data on occupancy levels of high street premises. This also follows data revealing that more than 8 out of 10 of Four Counties Insurance commercial clients trade in or within a commutable distance of one of our local Cambridgeshire offices.
Charles Green, Operations Director at Four Counties Insurance said: “We are participating in and organising local campaigns designed to help firms in their town promote their services and, discuss opportunities which can help their businesses grow. The Keep Trade Local campaigns’ objective is to link local businesses together to help protect the future of small local firms in the area.”
Borney UK, event supporter said: “We are delighted to be involved in sponsoring and exhibiting at the St Neots Showcase Day. Working and collaborating within our local business community is an important ethos for Borney.”
