The Samphire Club and Hale Events are collaborating to elevate networking opportunities at trade shows across the south west.

Since launching in 2016, The Samphire Club has built a thriving community of like-minded business people throughout the region, from Truro to Bristol, enjoying hospitality at some of the south west’s finest food and drink venues.

Hale Events organises the Source and Expowest Cornwall trade shows for the hospitality sector. MD, Mike Anderson, said: “Our trade shows offer more than just product showcases; they’re hubs for forging connections and expanding industry knowledge.

“Teaming up with The Samphire Club, renowned for its ability to facilitate meaningful connections, will enhance the networking opportunities for attendees.”

Samphire founder, John Harvey, added: “Attending trade shows has always been one of the cornerstones of my networking strategy. It’s great to have so many people from a particular industry in one space but I appreciate that it might not always be easy for attendees to leverage this benefit.

“That’s where Samphire’s know-how in helping people enjoy making those essential connections and building strong working relationships comes in, and we’re really looking forward to working with Hale Events.”
