Peterborough Biscuit Exhibition
Peterborough Biscuit, Peterborough’s largest B2B event returned yesterday, after the inaugural occasion proved such a success.
The event, which is run in association with Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce showcases the excellent business community that exisits within Peterborough City and its surroundings, providing businesses exclusive networking opportunities.
The event brought together over 370 business people and as many as 5,000 visitors at Peterborough’s ‘East of England Arena and Events Centre’, enabling them to build new connections and explore what new products or services exhibitors have to offer.
Visitors made use of the day by attending seminars designed to enhance business knowledge and skills to negotiate topical business challenges, taking part in speed networking sessions and even stepping into the virtual world by utilising the simulator.
Exhibitors put themselves in the spotlight and presented their products and services. One of which is the region’s leading construction business Mick George Ltd, who continues to expand its provisions to the benefit of a whole host of commercial operators from different specialisations.
Two services that Mick George Ltd demonstrated its experience and benefits to market in, were its Commercial Waste operation and recently added Telecoms function, both of which will be advantageous for all organisations with fixed premises.
Representatives from the Telecoms division were on hand to discuss future-proofing businesses, with Mick George’s innovative hosted telephone solution, especially in advance of BT’s ISDN shut-down in 2025.
While the Commercial Waste Team were available to showcase exactly how they can save your business money, improve recycling rates and assist in building improved CSR through Landfill Diversion.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Our affiliation with the Chamber of Commerce has allowed us to build many positive relationships, especially through events such as this.‘’
Stump Continued: ‘’As well as the generic, business insight into the macroeconomic challenges that are discussed, the emphasis on local organisations pulling together to support one another is very prevalent at the event, and that is something we would always advocate.’’
