Want to connect your business, then get some real expo-sure

March 22, 2015

THE Football League Trophy may not be “coming home” to the Saddlers but I certainly want to see business heading in the direction of the town.

And a special exhibition at the end of the month is certain to arouse a great deal of interest among the business fraternity of Walsall.

If you want more customers and are keen to build more commercial contacts, as well as sourcing new suppliers, then Walsall Connects is for you.

Hundreds of delegates and more than 50 exhibitors are heading for the business expo showing local commerce – jointly sponsored by bestofwalsall and Gone Fishing.

No one’s keener than I am to see a thriving local economy or our Prime Minister, David Cameron, who has turned Britain into the “jobs factory of Europe” by backing small business and enterprise – not putting those jobs at risk with short-term economic gimmicks.

Despite weaker world and European growth, our output will be up 2.5  per cent this year with business investment growing four times faster than household consumption and manufacturing output 4.5 times faster than it did in the entire decade before the financial crisis of 2008.

The business event – at Forest Arts Centre in Hawbush Road, Walsall (WS3 1AG) – is free of charge for delegates but you need to book in advance by registering through

Walsall Connects in on Tuesday, March 31 from 4-6.30pm.
