New Forest Business Partnership had a strong presence at this year’s New Forest Show demonstrating a strong support for local business and engaging with one of the most important events on the New Forest business calendar.
Each morning NFBP hosted a Business Breakfast in the Wilverley Restaurant which allowed for local businesses to network with each other in a relaxed, informal environment. A number of businesses already exhibiting at the Show took advantage of this, giving them the ideal start to their busy day.
NFBP also contributed towards the New Forest District Council stand which this year focussed on ‘Helping Local Business Grow’ and the Council’s support and engagements with the local business community. Visitors to the marquee were shown the wide variety of events and activities which the partnership undertakes throughout the year including a presentation of all this year’s Brilliance in Business Award Winners.
On the Tuesday morning NFBP Chairman Matthew Lawson was introduced to the Countess of Wessex. She was introduced to the various business support initiatives, including NFBP and Brand New Forest which exist to help the local economy.
