The Chamber News
The East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce “EXPO” was hosted at De Vere Cranage Estate on Friday 21st September. Over 30 businesses from across the region took exhibition space to display what their companies had to offer. There were businesses from professional, manufacturing and the service sectors. The Department For International Trade were present to give export advice for those businesses looking to export for the first time or develop new markets overseas. Advice was also available with regards to employing apprentices, gaining access to finance, tendering for local government contracts and many other issues of interest to delegates.
The event was sponsored by Cranage De Vere Estates who have recently carried extensive refurbishment at the venue. On arrival delegates were given a passport to the venue showing places to visit around the hotel, including function rooms, restaurant facilities, bars and bedrooms that have been subject to the upgrade. These passports were later put into a draw for prices of opportunities to use the venue free of charge.
There were also “Business Card” draws for bottles of champagne and a “Best Dressed Stand” competition that was won by Verity Venues.
After the event Cranage De Vere Estates put on a Hog Roast with complimentary drinks and live music was played in the Tempus Bar.
