Recently, Derek Lane & Co became members of the Somerset Chamber of Commerce. The chamber is a network of around 2,000 members and frequently puts on events for the members to meet and work together. Last week Zeke and Pete attended the Somerset in Business 2015 (#SIB2015) Conference held at Junction 24, North Petherton.

It was a great day learning about some of the businesses in the Somerset and surrounding area, with a record turnout of over 300 business people. Speakers from a variety of companies delivered presentations on their business backgrounds and offered advice on how to make it as a strong business in the Somerset area. In addition there were multiple businesses with interesting display stands, giving a hands on look at what they do.

All in all it was a very insightful and interesting day; it was a real eye opener to see the variety of businesses operating in the county of Somerset. The Westcountry has a reputation for being a hot bed  for the Food & beverage industry; though this is nothing to shrug over, it was nice to see just exactly what lies in the county borders. Networking events are extremely helpful in developing B2B relations & it was nice to talk to some new people as well bump into some people we already knew. We look forward to seeing you at the next event!
