A free networking event, Brunch Means Business, will create a keen appetite for business and launch the 9th annual MENTA Trade Fair, the largest business to business exhibition to be held in west Suffolk, which is sponsored by MENTA Patron, Atkins Thomson Solicitors.

For 33 years MENTA has provided advice, training, events and managed office and unit space to support Suffolk’s businesses, companies, sole traders and freelancers.

The brunch event is expected to attract more than 150 business people and will take place on Tuesday 3rd October, from 11am at the Apex, Bury St Edmunds. It will launch the MENTA Trade Fair which starts at 12noon.

Suffolk born Alex Monroe, the London based, international jewellery designer is the keynote speaker at Brunch Means Business and will share his insights into building a successful brand.

The jeweller, who has a home in Suffolk said:  “The county has a vibrant business community and the day will be a great opportunity for companies to showcase their goods and services. There is a massive amount of creativity locally and it is sure to be an inspiring day.  I’m looking forward to meeting new people and learning more about some of the great companies in the region.”

Brunch Means Business is sponsored by Invest in Suffolk which promotes the county as great place to do business.  Although it is a free event visitors are invited to make a donation to MENTA’s charity of the year, Suffolk MIND.

Suffolk County Council’s Leader, Cllr Colin Noble said: “The Council is delighted to support the ‘Brunch Means Business’ event which aims to give local companies the opportunity to meet, learn and do business together. We’re thrilled to have Alex Monroe speak at the event.  His company exhibits and sells internationally and his jewellery designs, have a strong sense of his home county of Suffolk. It’s also fantastic that every piece is made in England.” 

The MENTA Trade Fair is sponsored for the 9th year by Atkins Thomson Solicitors and partner, Robert Dellow said: “Brunch Means Business is an exciting way of launching the MENTA Trade Fair, which attracts over 600 visitors from across the region.  With more than 100 exhibitors, from start-up businesses to established companies, there are fantastic opportunities to meet people face-to-face and create business contacts.
