Business show 2021


With the uncertainty that exists around the safety of large public gatherings, due to Covid-19, MENTA chose to put public safety first and delay the 2020 Business Show.  As the most popular and well attended event of its type in the area, we have chosen to bounce back with two events in 2021.  

On March 24 2021, there we be an extra and new type of event! Business Show Lite! The event is a celebration of local and regional businesses in the area and a perfect way to meet new contacts. Set with the stunning Bury St Edmunds Cathedral as our backdrop, we are offering a unique event for all sectors. #Finance #Property #Tourism #Hospitaility #Design #SME  #Advice #Support #Services

Visitor tickets are free but must be registered for. Tickets  *networking brunch is £5 & chargeable on the day.  

The event on March 24th, will prove that Suffolk and the surrounding region is back from lock-down and demonstrate what we have to offer in 2021.

The event will act as a launchpad for the main Business festival to be held later in 2021. Business Show Lite will include networking, talks, brunch, entertainment and the key element to any exhibition, the exhibitors! The event will benefit from Facebook live streaming, reaching an even wider audience. With guest interviews and featured exhibitors.

In September 2021, we return with our big celebration of business across East Anglia and the opening event of the West Suffolk Business Festival. The exhibition, has space for more than 70 exhibitors from across Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Norfolk, ranging from business services to finance, media and manufacturing.

This event is designed with opportunities to network your own business, enjoy making new connections and deals as well as discovering new ways to enrich your own business knowledge with a series of short talks.

There are on-site experts delivering business advice as well as business help clinics that will be covering marketing, social media, finance, and business development.
