Banbury Town Hall is set to welcome a new business exhibition next Wednesday (May 11) to help local businesses grow and showcase their work.

Hosted by K&K Uniting Connections – a partnership between local business owners Kelly Frith and Katy Osborne and is free to attend, but booking is required, and guests can take part in five-minute speed networking sessions throughout the morning.

Kelly Frith said: “Having navigated our own businesses out of the pandemic, we know how crucial it is to have a strong support network of other like-minded businesses. We want to support and help other businesses grow by introducing the ‘right’ connections and the ‘right’ referrals, as others did for us.

“We decided the best way to make this a reality was to take the plunge and host the exhibition, which Katy and I are very excited about!  We are delighted to have the support of local business groups, including the Banbury & District Chamber of Commerce.”

K&K Uniting Connections is also supporting local children’s charity, Helen and Douglas Hospice, through the event with a dedicated stand and charity raffle, for which donations have been flooding in from local businesses.

Neil Wild, Chair of Banbury and District Chamber of Commerce, added: “The Chamber is delighted to be supporting this event to encourage new and established businesses to connect and collaborate with one another.”

Kelly and Katie are no strangers to business networking, having both been involved with Business Buzz events for the past few years as Ambassadors. This will be the first time the duo have joined forces to put on their own event and have already generated lots of support from local businesses wanting to exhibit, including Whitley Stimpson, Bloxham Mill, Finders Keepers, Azets Accountants and Business Buzz.
