We know that events are key to all our businesses, so we wanted to keep you updated on our upcoming events and the SWB Expo regarding COVID-19.

The SWB Expo could be one of the first opportunities post Covid-19 to fully engage face to face with the huge SW business network, so, with that in mind we have had to make the tough decision to postpone the Expo to 31st March 2021. The on going situation, Government guidelines, the safety of Sponsors, Exhibitors, Attendees and Expo team means that holding our large scale Expo is not going to be viable this year, with the social distancing measures and peoples confidence in attending such large scale events.   As Government guidance/legislation changes we will keep you updated via the website and social media.

We are committed to running the Expo in the future and will be running an online networking event on what would have been show day on 4th November 2020. We will be getting touch with Sponsors and Exhibitors to update them on our plans for the Expo. All current Exhibitors and Sponsors packages will be carried over to 31st March 2021 event and all attendees that have registered will be transferred to the new date too.

As a company we have also committed to working from home as of 18th March, we will be contactable in all the usual ways- please see below.

We have been running a daily zoom meeting for businesses arcoss the South West to support you all in these challenges times. The event is called Elevenses and has been taking place every day at 1100 to 1130. This event is open to all, not just our clients to have a virtual cup of coffee and support each other as we adapt to this new way of working in these challenging times. We have reduced the frequency of these events now, as of the beginning September to Mondays and Fridays.

If you would like to join on Elvenses, please follow this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/159438556?pwd=NWplc0dlVlJvcjg0Q1hDcUpjQ1VtUT09

We also have a very active and growing Facebook, which you are welcome to join to promote your businesses: https://www.facebook.com/groups/swbconnections

We hope that as a community we will all work together to help and support each other and continue to do business with each other as we all need the SW economy to keep going in these challenging times.

Please stay safe and we will get through this and come out stronger.
