Help each other to promote our businesses

Our Business 2 Business Exhibition is a networking event. It is important that everyone make the correct impression. Some people may not be interested in your service, however, take the time to be polite. Ask if they know of anyone else that might interested in your service.

Remember it is not just the business you do on the day, but the contacts you make. I seldom generate business on the day and equally I normally do business with some people I have met, even if it is months down the line.

Do have something to hand out with your name and contact details. If you have suppliers ask them how they can help you. Joint leaflets which they pay for, free samples or banner stands.

Please do add comments here as it could turn into a useful resource.

Thinking about Networks

I attend 2 or 3 Breakfast meetings a week, many of them draw 30 plus business people. I also attend one Evening networking event and an occasionally a Lunch gathering.

I notice a difference between those before and after work to those at lunchtime.

At lunchtime you have more employed people from larger companies on an average. They are often better prepared. Is this because they have time to plan and print updated leaflets. If people have a shop or reception to man then the working day may not an option.

Do you share this view? If you go to these events do you think 'forced' referral are of a good standard?

I am surprised how few people I see from Local Authorities and 'Not for Profit' Business Support Organisations. Norwich has an excellent Business Library at The Forum but do people know about it? Occasionally an organisation will turn up at a networking event, however, they do not come monthly to build their relationships. Business knows one visit is not enough. I wonder if Local Authorities who spend £1,000s sending out questionnaires and carrying out research ever think that they would have a better understand if they spoke to the public? If they do speak to the public it is often at event they organise which are not a true cross section.

I wonder if an employee asked the council for £250 a year to join networking group what the reaction would be, although it might be a fraction of the cost of other means. Do Council's join Online (paid and free) networks?

Unique £20 B2B Exhibition stands

How can a small start-up business selling to other businesses afford £250 to £400 one stand?


Why should Business Support Organisations make money out of helping their paid up Members promote their business?

I have an idea, with sponsors we should be able to offer 1M stands to a small business from £20. Simple and fair so sound good to me read below and let me have your thoughts.

You pay £10 for each year you have been trading and £10 for each employee you have. See the examples below. The maximum you pay for the number of years in business is £50 and the same amount for the number of staff, therefore the maximum cost is £100.

Trading less than 2 years £20 and working on your own Total due £30

Two people in partnership £20 and trading 3 years £30 Total due £50

One person with 3 staff £40 and trading 8 years £50 Total due £90

Each 1meter stand consists of a display space of up to 1meter. Some stands are available with a display board for an extra cost of £10. Free of charge you may have use of half of a trestle table with cloth cover and chairs, or you can bring your own table. Double stands are available at double the price, but please only one company per stand.

There are a limited 2M stands for larger businesses for £250 including acknowledgment as Sponsor.

How does that sound to you, any suggestions for improvment?
