April Latest News

by Sonny Cutting

Though only a few days into April, the months of May and June are approaching faster than a 100mph cue ball and a game of pool with a pro! June 22nd 2017 will be the next date for your diaries; we’re having a social gathering of local businesses in Crawley by partnering Basepoint Business Centres for a fun pool tournament and charity fundraiser. If you would like to get involved in this fantastically fun event visit our site to register: Net XP Crawley Fundraiser

Guests must register to attend the event and entry is £10 per person / All proceeds go to charity.

Prizes for the raffles have already started to stack up for the June charity fundraiser; Sussex Pages has added a new bottle of Ridgeview Wine, Softech Digital has added a Video Drone as a prize and more are being added every week. We’re pleased to announce that Basepoint Business Centres and the Crawley office will be sponsors for the event and have stated that they will match whatever we raise!

Our sponsors for the event on 22nd June align themselves with four local charities, one for each Basepoint office and these wonderful local organisations are listed below.

The nominated charities are:

Crawley - The Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre
Haywards Heath - The Golden Lions Children’s Trust
Shoreham - Chestnut Tree House
Newhaven - Fitzroy Sussex

Our June event is looking to be brilliant already, but we need to keep on our toes, for not long after that is our September 7th expo at the Kings Centre in Burgess Hill. Momentum is building; already we’re 30% sold for exhibitor spaces, exciting keynote speakers have been lined up and we have an agenda that will be above par for expectations.

Penina Shepherd will be one of two opening keynote speakers for the expo, and we’ve also got Wes Atkinson of Evolve Authoring and Coast to Capital looking to do workshops too.

Along with everything we just told you about, BVP’s video of our last event is now READY and our one-of-a-kind, unique virtual tour will be loaded to the Uckfield Expo page for you to use within the next few days.

Make sure you check them out, you won’t regret it!

With the 16th March being such a great success, we’d like to say a massive thank you to all our sponsors, exhibitors and guests for coming and supporting us at the East Sussex National. We couldn’t have envisioned a better beginning for our brand to leap forward from and it has given us the opportunity to progress, grow and add in new events for 2017 and beyond. Already we’ve booked the East Sussex National for our second event there for the 1st March 2018 and we’re searching for a future media sponsor, premier sponsor, showcase and partner sponsors to support us for the day.
