Speaking about the Expo Denise Rossiter, Chief Executive of Essex Chambers of Commerce, said "Basildon is one of the most enterprising towns in Essex having recently celebrated its' 70th birthday as a New Town so it is good to be working with the Borough Council to stage another business expo and highlight what it can offer businesses large and small. We look forward to welcoming new and previous exhibitors for what we are sure will be a great day"
Cllr Adele Brown, Basildon Council's Chairman of the Infrastructure and Inclusive Growth Committee added: "We are delighted to continue our partnership with the Essex Chambers of Commerce that shows Basildon is a great place to do business and it's events like this that promote why the borough is a good place to invest.
"Local businesses are already registering to exhibit to showcase what they do, and the Expo is a great event for businesses to share their success stories, network and to hopefully secure more business. I would encourage any businesses who have not already signed up to not leave it too late."
