This year's Horley Business Expo, run by Horley and District Chamber of Commerce to promote businesses in the Horley and Gatwick area, will be held at The Holiday Inn, Gatwick, on Wednesday, April 23.

Running from 9am to 5pm, the event which gives local businesses the chance to exhibit and display their services, will feature a range of seminars and guest speakers.

The day will actually start at 7am with a networking breakfast, before the Expo proper opens at 9am. A spokesman for Horley and District Chamber of Commerce said: “The Chamber launched the annual Expo because we felt that there were many local businesses in the area, tucked away on industrial parks and in outlying villages, that many people did not know existed. “The Horley Expo was set up to enable those businesses to show themselves to a wider local audience.

“The last two Expos have been a great success.”

The 2012 Expo drew a large number of visitors, who packed the venue all day, while last year's event was also well attended and was opened by East Surrey MP Sam Gyimah.
