Businesses across Hounslow can make an exhibition of themselves at the Hounslow Festival of Business next week.

The event, on Thursday 26 January, takes place at the London Hilton Syon Park, Park Road, Brentford, TW8 8JF, will see hundreds of small and bigger businesses showcase their companies and organisations via a VIP business breakfast, exhibition, business advice clinics and speed networking sessions.

Hounslow Council is partnering with the Hounslow Chamber of Commerce to present the inaugural festival which is designed to promote the thriving business community in the borough and those across west London.

It also gives businesses exhibiting and visiting an opportunity to further their credentials by meeting potential new customers, to also explore possible new partnerships and seek inspiration for diversification or new product ranges. Another attraction on the day will be the presence of futuristic car maker Tesla, who will take top billing in what is being touted as Hounslow’s first ever Motor Show.

Following breakfast presentations and networking, there will be a number of business clinics offering advice with themes including: Breaking the rules and winning more business, developing a unique selling proposition and social media for your business.

Councillor Steve Curran, Leader of Hounslow Council, said: “We are extremely proud to be supporting the Hounslow Festival of Business, an event that is a really important date in the business calendar.

“We do what we can to support and help our businesses thrive. They are the heartbeat of our communities, providing everything from employment to the many things we need in life. If they are thriving and doing well, then so is the borough.

“I would like to thank Stephen Fry, Chief Executive of Hounslow Chamber of Commerce for his and the chamber’s support of our local businesses. I would also like to welcome the new president of Brentford Chamber of Commerce, David O’Connor, of whom I am looking forward to working with.”

“I hope all our businesses get as much as possible out of attending the festival, from showing just what they do, to attracting new custom to their businesses. If there are any businesses not yet signed up for the festival, I strongly recommend doing so to really put your company on the map.”
