On the 21st March The Creative Expo was delighted to welcome hundreds of creative individuals and businesses to Havant & South Downs College. This unique event celebrated creativity across the Southern region.  It brought together an eclectic mix of businesses, creatives and students to network, showcase and be inspired.

Centered around a large exhibition hall, which saw visitors and exhibitors mix and connect, the Expo featured live entertainment and workshops on the Performance Theatre stage, inspiring seminars offering practical advice, insight and creative knowledge, an art and design gallery featuring work from established and up and coming artists, creative demonstrations and 2 speed networking sessions.

"The Creative Expo was one of the most innovative events that Chichester Chamber of Commerce and Industry has supported in recent times. It brought together a fusion of Creative Industries, mainstream businesses, Education and the workforce of tomorrow.   It is vital that all businesses, from every sector embrace the idea that creativity is the cornerstone of all businesses, from art and the performing world to engineering, finance and the professional services.
We will certainly be supporting future events, the brainchild of one of our valued members, Samara and John of TSE Productions."

Sue Garman, CEO Chichester Chamber of Commerce
