Cornwall Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Fair is the largest event in Cornwall’s business calendar and the centrepiece of Cornwall Business Week.
In changing and challenging times, improved knowledge and greater connections bring real advantage. The Cornwall Business Fair brings our dynamic business community together to trade, talk, share knowledge, collaborate and to strengthen our region’s economy.
In 2016, over 2,000 people visited Cornwall Business Fair. The event celebrated everything that is wonderful about Cornish business in what is unarguably the Duchy’s most inspirational, colourful and creative space, the Eden Project.
In 2017 we are returning to the Eden Project to run the ninth Cornwall Business Fair; the event will take place on Wednesday 17 May 2017.
“We have been inundated with positive messages about Cornwall Business Fair 2016 from both attendees and exhibitors. Thousands of people attend and spend several hours at Eden, resulting in excellent footfall for exhibitors and a positive networking experience for visitors.”
Kim Conchie, Chief Executive of Cornwall Chamber of Commerce
