Businesses in and around Burgess Hill will be promoted at the biggest free exhibition in Mid Sussex next Friday (May 15).
Now in its seventh year, Burgess Hill Means Business at the King’s Centre in the heart of the town’s business hub is somewhere all where visitors can discover the rich variety of enterprises in and around Burgess Hill.
This year, the organisers ,Burgess Hill Business Parks Association (BHBPA), have scored a bullseye for local charity by introducing the chairman’s Charity Challenge darts tournament.
The brainchild of Paul Shearing, the BHBPA chairman, have-a-go darts is all for a good cause, with £1 for three shots going to St Peter & St James Hospice at North Chailey.
Exhibitors and visitors alike will be encouraged to take to the stage and try their hand at target practice with the chance to win the inaugural Challenge trophy.
The chairman will make the presentation to the highest scorer at 2pm on the day.
More than 70 businesses have signed up for exhibition stands, including Porsche, Ridgeview Wine Estate, Bennett Christmas, Acumen Business Law, Consort Frozen Foods, Heights Health and Fitness, Preview Graphics, Accelerated Mailing and Marketing and Sussex Osteopathy.
BHBPA coordinator Peter Liddell said: “We’re really excited about this year’s event – not only with the impressive list of exhibitors, but also our new charity challenge which should really inject the competitive element into proceedings!”
Mid Sussex MP Sir Nicholas Soames, who has been involved with BHBPA since its formation, will be showing his support and meeting representatives from local businesses.
Anyone with an interest in business networking are encouraged to come along to the centre in Victoria Road between 10am and 3pm.
