Some 2,000 visitors will descend upon the town of Sudbury in the second week of October for the Sudbury Small Business Show, an event designed to support local small businesses.
It is being hosted by the popular ‘Visions of Sudbury’ exhibition in St Peter’s Church with the hope it will shine a spotlight on the local small enterprises of Sudbury.
The event’s organiser, Robin Drury, said that the show is open for anyone who provides a service. The businesses will be able to showcase their products and services, as well as directly interact with potential customers.
“Perhaps you produce jewellery, make pots, restore furniture, carve stone? Or maybe you provide services such as an architect, builder, book designer, signwriter – practice in reflexology, reiki, interior design?
“The list is endless! This event could be just what you need to promote your particular skill or product.”
There is a the option of having a stand for a whole week, or those who will not be able to do so, there will be an option of having a manned counter that can feature products.
“There are so many micro businesses set up locally, providing a rich choice to the public and supporting the local economy. Many of these are rolled out by one-man-bands or tiny organisations that may only employ a few people,” Drury continued.
“They can be run from anything like a kitchen table or office to a small industrial unit. We all know they are out there, scattered in and around Sudbury.”
