Previous Enterprise Fairs have started early and finished with the business day. This year we are trying something different by running from 12.30 to 8pm. This will hopefully allow even more people and businesses to attend as it fits more peoples’ work patterns.
We know from previous fairs that some people like to come for the whole day and attend all the workshops. While others just pop in and out either for a single key workshop or to network or to ask a single question. All are welcome.
So if you can only work during school hours, finish work after 5pm or only have childcare available in the evenings, with the new hours you can now attend. Most of our experts will be around for the whole fair and there will always be people on hand for you to talk to and to help with most enquiries. This can include providing details of relevant peoples’ details and other advice.
One of the people, who will be there most of the day as he has a stand, and is happy to help is Grahame Smith of Forest of Dean Pest Control.
