Our Team

Paul Bridgland

Principle Organiser

“I’ve been running the Surrey Business Expo for the past 10 years in Guildford, after a harsh 2020 and cancellation of the show, I’m delighted to team up with Steve Page to put on our biggest and best show yet and for the first time running over two days”.

Paul’s background is in the events and presentation industry, organising large corporate events since 1985 – in 2000 Paul sold his company Creation Station and embarked on a solo career.  Paul also runs Connect Surrey  …  a local business networking group that meets regularly in Guildford, Farnham, Woking, Leatherhead and Dorking.
