Mark Hannigan, operations manager at Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber, said: "Chamber Means Business continues to go from strength to strength. We have had more exhibitors than ever, more people booked to attend and the highest footfall we have ever had.

"Bringing the amount and diversity of businesses together, in the stunning Wentworth Woodhouse, gave people the opportunity to generate new contacts and create new business opportunities that would potentially take time to amass.

"The feedback we have received has been exceptionally positive and we look forward to taking this to a new level in 2016."

The event also gave any prospective buyers the chance to look inside the largest privately-owned house in Europe that is currently up for sale with an asking price of in excess of £8m.
