St Helens Chamber is celebrating a successful Business Fair event, which saw over 200 attendees come along to see exhibitors from across the Liverpool City Region.

St Helens Chamber Business Fair is one of the largest business to business events in the region. With a wide range of businesses exhibiting and attracting hundreds of visitors, this is a great networking event for all ambitious businesses who are looking to grow and prosper.

Rachel Collins, Head of Business Services at St Helens Chamber, commented: “It was fantastic to see so many people attending and exhibiting at our latest Business Fair.

“After the difficult 18 months we’ve had, it was a pleasure to see people coming together to do business and socialise. We saw lots of delegates and exhibitors building relationships with others and I can’t wait to see how these relationships develop in the future.”

The latest Business Fair took place at Totally Wicked Stadium, where over 200 delegates came along to do business with 65 exhibitors. The exhibitors in attendance represented a wide range of industries across the Liverpool City Region, and the whole event proved to be a great success for all in attendance.

The Business Fair was sponsored by real5 Networking, who ran two highly engaging sessions throughout the day to enable delegates and exhibitors to network.

Rachel continued: “The sessions from real5 were fantastic and there was a real buzz in the room – people were excited to be able to share their stories and promote their businesses and the feedback from these sessions reflected this.

“In the aftermath of the lockdowns, its more important than ever to give businesses the chance to support each other and work together for the benefit of the Borough, and these networking opportunities really help towards that.”

St Helens Chamber Business Fair was also sponsored by LCR Connect a full-fibre, ultrafast, gigabit-capable network spanning the Liverpool City Region, who aim to enhance the connectivity of businesses across the region using cloud technologies.

The event was also supported by media partners LocalIQ, who as part of Newsquest Media Group, the UK’s leading local publisher, provided coverage for the event across the region.

Rachel added: “We would like to thank all of our sponsors, who each contributed to making this such a great event.

“At the Chamber we are keen to work with local businesses and create partnerships which help us to provide a voice for local businesses – and we look forward to working with these partners in the future.”

Alongside the networking and business fair, attendees had the opportunity to ask St Helens Council questions about the planned regeneration of St Helens and Earlestown – and view a 3D model of the plans to better visualise the regeneration of the town.

Rachel explained: “There is a lot of interest in the plans for regeneration, so it was a great addition to the event to have the Council there to take questions from residents and businesses.

“The session was really well attended and we’re glad to have been able to provide a space for people to discuss the exciting plans coming to our town.”
