Last year I organised with another business owner a business-to-business festival under the name NewBiz Business Festival here in Bromsgrove. This year's NewBiz Business Festival will be held at the Bank House Hotel near Worcester, on 11th October 2006, running from about 2pm until 8 or 9 pm including a seminar programme. It occurs to me that this year's Festival could also be used as an opportunity for forum members to have a regional get-together, as the location is relatively easily accessible from the West Midlands, Gloucester/Cheltenham and, further afield, Bristol, South Wales and Oxford. For example, forum members booking a table to exhibit could be identified as such or be grouped together in the hall, and a room could be set aside also for forum members for networking or a seminar etc. I'd like to know how many people would be interested in this. The cost of attendance would be reasonable, e.g. less then £60 to exhibit, nothing to simply come as a visitor. PM me with any comments and/or complete the poll, please.
