range of exhibition stands and a complimentary breakfast.

Finditinworcestershire’s first birthday and welcomed approximately
250 delegates. With more than 2,400 members registered since its
2011 launch, Finditinworcestershire organisers say it’s the place
to be for local businesses, both in person and online.
Kathryn Wagstaff, Project Manager
of Finditinworcestershire, said: “We’re delighted with yet
another strong turn-out. Finditinworcestershire has rapidly become
an essential resource for local businesses to get involved with.
More than 400 contract opportunities worth at least £20 million
have been posted on our website, so – whether it’s in person at our
monthly meetings or online via our website – Finditinworcestershire
is the place to be for local business.”
The next Finditinworcestershire breakfast
and networking meeting will be focussed on construction and will
offer delegates the chance to ‘meet the buyer’ from a number of
major contractors. Free places for the event on Tuesday 17 April
