Alpha Wave Media joined 134 other businesses at the Millennium Conference Centre, Gatwick for the annual South East Business Show on Friday 14th October, to exhibit the company and meet potential clients and partnerships. It was an early start; arriving at the Office for 7:00am to arrive at the Conference Centre for 8:30, luckily the show finished at 3:00pm so the feet weren’t hurting too much by the end of the day.
The exhibition was a great success and the team from Alpha Wave Media had a fantastic day meeting future clients and other local businesses; all of whom were extremely friendly and made every visitor feel welcome.
The south east business show is great for small, local businesses to network and gain new clients, as it gives a company the push to meet new people in a neutral business environment. The network room was the place to be for this, as Managing Directors to Administrators were conversing about the latest economic issues, prospective partnerships and the various social activities that would be taking place after the show.
The show was once again a great opportunity to meet local businesses, and we were pleased with the turnout and interest the attendees had in our business. We will certainly continue to exhibit at this show, and would recommend it for small businesses working in and around the Gatwick diamond.
If you have any questions about our presence at the show or if you were interested in the company but didn’t have a chance to speak to us, please feel free to get in touch by e-mail or leave a comment and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
