The message is clear – Woking Means Business! And we made the video that is now being used to promote WMB 2016!
The 2015 Woking Means Business Exhibition, held at HG Wells Conference & Events Centre on Wednesday 7th October was considered to be a big success.
Some eighty exhibitors were on show, a crowd of 650 local business owners, directors and managers attended and the buzz in the halls was there for all to see and hear.
The day started with the usual Woking Borough Council Pre-Show Breakfast Briefing where Ray Morgan, the Council’s Chief Executive announced that a new free wifi service was now available for all to use in the centre of Woking. He also added that he wanted Woking to be a ‘Digital Hub.’
As the breakfast ended, the exhibition opened its doors and the aisles quickly filled up as the breakfast visitors poured in to the hall. The fascinating range of exhibitors included everything from a detective agency, executive cars, photographers, recruitment, business centre, surveyors, accountants, solicitors, motor repairs, IT, web design and included such names as Grant Thornton, The Intellectual Property Office, Companies House, Hunters Land Rover and The Ambassadors Theatre Group.
Rachel Oliver, who exhibited with her company Clockwork Recruitment, said, ‘Well done and thank you for organising the exhibition today. It was a great success and we got to meet lots of new businesses. Looking forward to next year.’
The programme of seminars was very well received. The Chamber’s publications editor, John Ashcroft, attended all the seminars. ‘This was probably the best show in the event’s 13 year history.,’ he said. ‘Throughout these years I’ve sat in on just about every seminar and the standard of presentations this year was unparalleled.’
Photographs were supplied by Andrew Boschier, the video was produced by Team360 and the Drinks Reception in the afternoon was sponsored by Barnbrook Sinclair.
Woking Means Business was organised by Woking Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by DoubleTree by Hilton and Woking Borough Council.
“A great success!” deemed exhibition organiser Paul Webster. “And now for next year!”
