BUSINESS leaders are gearing up for Exmouth's first ever 'business-to-business' fair in a bid to help traders deal with the recession.

More than 20 local businesses have booked promotional stalls at the event on March 17 at Devon Cliffs, providing a range of information and services to local traders.

There will be a range of speakers offering advice including Kevin Butler of the Bank of England and Jeremy Filmer-Bennett, Chief Executive of the Devon and Cornwall Business Council.

He ran a business through the last recession and will offer his views on what works and what doesn't during a recession.

The fair is a collaboration of the Business League, Exmouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce, Exmouth Town Management, Business Link, the Federation of Small Businesses and the Business Information Point.

Town manager Tony Collins said: "I am really excited about our first local business event.
