Countdown to Business Show


After the success of the inaugural Cornwall Business Show last year, the event is back, bigger and better again.


Sponsored by Cornwall Innovation , and supported by Business Cornwall and Pirate FM, the Cornwall Business Show (Kingsley Village, Fraddon, October 2-3) will boast more than 50 exhibitors from a range of sectors, six free to attend seminars and a free evening networking event, which is sponsored by GAIN.

Topics covered in the free to attend seminars will include; tendering with the public sector, effectiveness, making money from IP and company core values.

There will also be an evening networking event on October 2, featuring a presentation from John Fontana, president of Yankee Candle International. His talk will be sure to inspire with plenty of real life examples and strategies that can be applied any to business, big or small.

Event sponsor and director of the Innovation Centres, Bernard Curren, said: “This is the second year Cornwall Innovation has sponsored this event. Last year it was a huge success and something we were very proud to be associated with.

“The Cornwall Business Show offers businesses the opportunity to explore their ambition by building their network, finding new opportunities and generating new ideas. No matter what size your business is, you can’t fail to be energised by this event.”
