Business Show moves to Cathedral for 2021

Mon Aug 17 2020

One of the region’s most popular business to business exhibitions is moving to St Edmundsbury Cathedral for two new styled events in 2021. The MENTA Business Show has traditionally been held at The Apex, on Charter Square in Bury St Edmunds but with COVID affecting venue date availability plus a desire to host two events in 2021, the decision was taken to move to the cathedral.

MENTA CEO Alex Till explains, “We were asked to stage a bounce back event for March 2021 and then host our traditional exhibition event in September. Our March 24 bounce back event is designed to showcase business resilience but also acknowledge the turbulent times faced by so many in business. Support will b a key element of the March event

The March 24 event will have a range of B2B support services on hand with practical help available from marketing to sales and finance. The event will have more than thirty exhibiting businesses, representing some of the finest businesses from our region. Visitors will be able to network and explore the various sectors in a safe and COVID aware environment.

The event organiser is Nick Pandolfi, he says “The team at the cathedral have been so helpful and this event will aim to capitalise on the splendour of this iconic building. We have the Atkins Dellow networking lunch, and every business sector represented in the exhibition areas. The event will have break out group conversations lead by industry experts and dealing with mental wellbeing at work, business process improvement, HR and work from home initiatives.  We aim to get people talking and sharing ideas and demonstrating support”

The two events have been created to allow business to showcase their sector and make new business contacts and leads. We are offering exhibition space for both events for just £180.

Both events will be live streamed with featured guest interviews.

Support for Newer business:

Mr Pandolfi says “we are offering three newer business exhibition space for free. The idea behind 3 under 3 is to allow those newer business, those trading for less than three years, the opportunity to exhibit and raise their profile without having to balance expenditure whilst being away from the business. We hope this offer will excite those younger businesses and they will join us
