4 Corners Design Joins Chamber following the 2017 Business Fair

07 Sep 2017


Ormskirk based company 4 Corners Design was a returning face at the 2017 St Helens Business Fair, held at Haydock Park Racecourse in April 2017.

Following their success at 2016’s event the company decided to return in order to build new contacts and maintain relationships with current clients and associates.

Claire Birks, Business Development Manager at 4 Corners Design said; “We had a stand in 2016 and we found it a useful way to develop contacts and new business, so we decided to go forward and book a stand for 2017.

“The whole organisation running up to the event was excellent. We received emails from the Chamber with tips about business fairs and how to promote effectively.

“We also received an exhibitor logo to let people know we’d be at the event, this helps to create more of an interest generally and let customers and clients know we’d be exhibiting.

“What I found really useful was that we were able to get to know companies before the event via social media, using the event hashtag and even taking that forward and linking to them on LinkedIn.

“Before I’d even got there I’d had discussions with people on the stands near me, it was nice to put faces to names and develop relationships via social media before the event. It was nice to feel we already knew the people around us.”

Following on from the event, 4 Corners Design has made 30 new contacts and gained business from fellow exhibitor Whiston and St Helens NHS Charity, whom Claire met while walking around the event.

They also made the decision to join the Chamber as Members after the Business Fair, as they liked the Membership package the Chamber had to offer.

Claire continued:“The Chamber has a really good reputation, having recently won the Chamber of the Year award. I read all about the support on offer and the package the Chamber offers to Members is excellent.

“The opportunity to network at events like the business breakfast is important to us. The chance to have regular contact with other Members is one of the things that attracted us.”

Membership starts from as little as £99+VAT, if you are interested in becoming a Member of the Chamber of the Year contact the Membership team on 01744 742025 or email membership@sthelenschamber.com.
