SheffEX radio interviews and film

BusinessLive060614iThe inaugural SheffEX business exhibition took place on Monday 3rd June at Ponds Forge, designed “as a place to do business by Sheffield City Region businesses people for Sheffield City Region businesses people.”

And it was a great success – with exhibition stands sold out, over 1000 delegates, and, in the words of co-organiser Tony Carroll, the venue “absolutely buzzing with people making contacts, doing deals and forming new partnerships.”

I’d been excited when I first heard about the event – and had interviewed Tony Carroll on my Business Live radio programme on Sheffield Live back on Friday 2nd May to talk about his plans.

So I attended SheffEX on the 2nd of June to find out what the buzz was all about.  Whilst there, I interviewed exhibitors, delegates and speakers, and broadcast these interviews on the Business Live radio programme on Sheffield Live on Friday 6th June.
