Record turn-out for Cornwall Business Show 2017

A record number of visitors attended this year’s Cornwall Business Show.

More than 1,000 people visited the event, held at the Royal Cornwall Showground on Thursday last week. According to the facial recognition software that monitored entry to the show, more than 850 of those were inside the venue by 11:30 am.

“I would like to thank all stakeholders in the event including our headline sponsors Everest Media. There was a great atmosphere throughout the day and we have received some really positive feedback from the majority of the 112 exhibitors. I would also like to thank and media partners Western Morning News, Pirate FM and We Love Social and Seminar Sponsors JHAV” said the show’s managing director, Andrew Weaver.

“It is clear that local businesses have chosen to consolidate some of their activity in the local market, not least given the uncertainty brought by our impending exit from the EU. A lot of business was done, and even larger numbers of people took full advantage of the networking opportunities brought by a show of this scale.”

The varied programme of seminars were a big draw this year. There was standing room only for several of the presentations, with people watching from outside the entrance to the 50 seater seminars suite.

Next year’s event is already planned for [Thursday 15th March]. For more information, email exhibit@cornwallbusinessshow.co.uk  or phone 01872 888733.
