News: 2016 event shows Chamber Means Business


It was a sell-out at Oakwell Stadium in Barnsley last week when Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber welcomed numerous businesses and individuals to this year's Chamber Means Business exhibition.

The exhibition (sponsored by Enterprising Barnsley, Barnsley College, Segmentation Group and Business Fire Safety) took place on Thursday September 15, providing business people from across the region the opportunity to meet exhibitors, make new contacts and attend free seminars.

Over 50 local businesses, from a broad spectrum of industries and markets, exhibited at the event to promote the excellent work they are doing within the region.

The seminar programme started with Cllr. Sir Steve Houghton, who gave an overview of the work that was been carried out in Barnsley Town Centre. This was then followed by Barnsley College and the Business Fire Safety awareness project. During the day a number of stadium tours hosted by former Barnsley FC player, Barry Murphy, took place, which gave a behind the scenes look at the club and stadium.


The event also saw the chamber launch its new website, developed with Rotherham-based digital agency, Expert Web, who also attended on the day and gave attendees the chance to win a free website.

Mark Hannigan, operations manager at Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber, said: "Being the 5th year of a combined Means Business exhibition, which once again was a sell-out, is testament to the longevity and positive outlook of this event from the business community of our region.

"We have once more given our members and the business community the opportunity to generate new contacts and create new business opportunities that would potentially take time to amass. We look forward to welcoming everyone again to the 2017 exhibition."

The next high profile event host by the Chamber is the Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards 2016 at Magna Science Adventure Centre on October 14.
