Visitors to this year’s Falkirk Business Exhibition voted it another resounding success for the organisers.
With over 400 attending last Friday’s event in Falkirk Town Hall, the interest has again confirmed how important a date it is in the calendar for both exhibitors and those coming along on the day.
The 2013 exhibition saw a diverse range of businesses attending including advertising, training, office space, support and advice, office supplies, sustainability and even motor vehicles.
Jim Killough, The Falkirk Herald’s new advertising manager, said: “This was my first visit to Falkirk Business Exhibition and I was very impressed. I’m sure everyone attending benefited from the day.
“The variety of exhibitors in the hall, together with the large number of people attending, showed the area has a wealth of established businesses, as well as an ever-growing number of entrepreneurs and firms keen to establish their place in the market.”
A new addition to this year’s event was the Business Gateway and Falkirk Council drop-in cafe.
It gave people an opportunity to find out about the further funding, grants, free business advice and support that is available.
The well-attended seminar programme, designed to give people food for thought across a variety of sessions, included The Helix, The Federation for Small Businesses, mi falkirk and the popular speed networking sessions organised by 4Networking.
One of the exhibitors said: “It was great to see a busy room that really had something for everyone from new business start-ups to well established nationally recognisable brands.
“Early discussions with others taking part labelled this year’s exhibition as the best one yet.”
