ELY Cathedral’s week-long Celebration of Business exhibition came to an end last Thursday with a key note speech from the Bishop of Huntingdon.
The Rt Rev David Thompson addressed dozens of delegates from more than 150 businesses along with MP George Freeman.
The speeches brought a close to a hugely successful second instalment of the exhibition, which saw dozens of businesses showcase what they have to offer to colleagues, peers and members of the public.
The event began on April 5 and saw multi-national companies line up alongside sole traders in the stunning medieval cathedral to promote what they do to visitors, while also making new connections among other businesses.

This was the one moment during the week long celebration when they encouraged as many people as possible, from all exhibiting organisations, to attend the Cathedral.
This was followed followed by the Celebration of Business Reception with a glass of wine and canapés from 6pm and speeches later.
At the launch of ECBG, and subsequently on publicity materials organisers stated that “all of the costs associated with the Celebration of Business have been sponsored, so attendance is free
“We believe that this objective is important, so that participation is genuinely open to all and not restricted to those that can pay”,
