A couple’s big day is set to be even better after the second Surrey Business Expo took place at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford on Wednesday (June 14).

The event, which has changed its name from Guildford Means Business, is organised by Connect Surrey in association with Webster Consultancy.

Surrey Business Expo hosted 120 exhibitors including Companies House, Chessington World of Adventures Resort, Guildford Borough Council and many more.

Free seminars were also held on “How to Open Doors and create more opportunities”, “How to do your own PR”, “How to turn Cold Leads into Sales” and more.

Organisers also held speed networking sessions.

Paul Webster, one of the organisers of the event, said: “We had breakfast with Guildford Borough Council and The University of Surrey giving a talk on how to get through the procurement stage and that was a full house of about 100 people there. We then held five seminars throughout the day and they were all pretty full.

“We had a couple of speed networking sessions and it was a really good expo and we had very good feedback. The visitors enjoyed it and the exhibitors enjoyed it as well.

“A number of exhibitors did prize draws and one of those was by Vines BMW between Guildford and Woking . Heather Boardman from WWF won and the prize was to use a BMW for a weekend.

“She went and said she was getting married soon and they upped it to the use of a 7 series limousine to drive her to and from that – she was over the moon!”
