Chelmsford City Showcase for Business

The 7th annual Chelmsford City Showcase for Business, Chelmsford’s premier business event, took place on Wednesday 18th November 2015 at Hylands House & Grand Pavilion, Hylands Park, London Road, Chelmsford, CM2 8WQ.

Organised and run by Chelmsford City Council, Inward Investment, Economy & Growth team, the Showcase has become an established annual event and again attracted hundreds of business men and women. As in previous years the event was part of Global Entrepreneurship Week with a common theme of “Make it Happen!”

 The Grand Pavilion became the base for 56 exhibitors with a refreshments and networking area whilst Hylands House accommodated a Business Breakfast Briefing sponsored by Essex Chambers of Commerce with guest speaker Xavier Woodward from DP World, a Business Networking Lunch sponsored by the Federation of Small Businesses with guest speaker Alex Golledge, Deputy Agent for the Bank of England and eight inspirational seminars and workshops throughout the day.

 It was a full, flexible, motivational and inspiring day with a full programme of activities from 7.30am through to 4.30pm.

 Many guests attending this free event rated the day as excellent, illustrating that it was a great opportunity to meet and network with a wide variety of businesses as well as gaining an insight to some innovative new ideas that proved highly beneficial to many delegates.
