HUNDREDS of business people and members of the public are expected at an exhibition of Huntingdonshire businesses today (Thursday).

More than 100 companies have stands at the day-long Huntingdonshire Business Exhibition, at Wood Green Animal Shelter, Godmanchester, organised jointly by Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, the Huntingdonshire branch of the Federation of Small Businesses and the Government-sponsored advisory service Business Link.

Among them is an Alconbury-based company that offers corporate team-building days with the chance to drive supercars such as the Zonda, which will be at the event, opened by Huntingdon's MP, Jonathan Djanogly.

FSB chairman Malcolm Lyons said participants are promoting their businesses with those attending, exchanging details with other companies and service providers, accessing independent business experts to improve their business, and setting out to gain new contacts and new business.
