It was a busy and engaging day at Kenilworth Chamber of Trade's recent business expo hosted by main sponsor The Holiday Inn in the town.

More than 40 businesses, ranging from healthcare, retail and service providers, from across Warwickshire were represented at the event, which returned after four years, on November 17.

Chair of Kenilworth chamber of trade Nadine Hummert and Sir Jeremy Wright, the MP for Kenilworth and Southam, welcomed exhibitors and visitors.

Kenilworth mayor councillor Alix Dearing opened the afternoon session and spent time visiting the different exhibitor stands and making connections.

There were three half-hour seminars involving speakers from the world of business marketing: Amanda Chalmers, of Chalmers News PR; Ian O’Donnell MBE, of Real Point Video for Business, and Gus Bhandal of MGuru, who presented on 'How To Be Awesome on Linked In.'

The event also raised £120 for the Kenilworth Centre, which was keen to showcase the many support services and community activities they provide.

Hummert said: "The small team on the Chamber Committee are very proud of what has been achieved at the Expo; there was a huge buzz in the room all day – people making valuable contacts, engaging with each other, learning and connecting.

"We were excited by the variety of businesses who were so keen to be a part of the event and use it as an opportunity to promote their business."
