Ely Cathedral Business Group believes that there is a strong correlation between the health of the business sector, and the well being of the communities in which those businesses operate.

Their spokesman said: “The purpose of ECBG is to explore this relationship and to strengthen the correlation: to help businesses succeed and thereby make our communities stronger

“In pursuit of ECBG’s aims to encourage the relationship between businesses and the wider community, companies have been invited to promote themselves free of charge, at the exhibition.

“Businesses of all sizes from sole trader through to multi-nationals have rubbed shoulders for a week and business people have had the opportunity to meet and to learn from each other.”
