This year’s Chamber Means Business exhibition was held at Oakwell Stadium in Barnsley, where Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber welcomed numerous businesses and individuals to this high profile venue.
The exhibition (sponsored by Enterprising Barnsley, Barnsley College, Segmentation Group and Business Fire Safety) took place on Thursday 15th September, providing business people from across the region the opportunity to meet exhibitors, make new contacts and attend FREE seminars.
Over 50 local businesses, from a broad spectrum of industries and markets, exhibited at the event to promote the excellent work they are doing within the region.
The seminar programme started with Cllr. Sir Steve Houghton, who gave an overview of the work that was been carried out in Barnsley Town Centre. This was then followed by Barnsley College and the Business Fire Safety awareness project. During the day a number of stadium tours hosted by former Barnsley FC player, Barry Murphy, took place, which gave a behind the scenes look at the club and stadium.
Shane Young, Senior Membership Executive said: “Being the 5th year of a combined Means Business exhibition, which once again was a sell-out, is testament to the longevity and positive outlook of this event from the business community of our region.
“We have once more given our members and the business community the opportunity to generate new contacts and create new business opportunities that would potentially take time to amass. We look forward to welcoming everyone again to the 2017 exhibition”.
