Hello and welcome to Ipswich & Suffolk Small Business Association (ISSBA).

We’re a not for profit membership organisation for local businesses run by business people, for business people and provide a platform for mutual support, networking and also run the Anglia Business Exhibition in May each year at Trinity Park, Ipswich.

We’re the only business support organisation run by business owners for business owners. Established in 1986, ISSBA is non profit making and run by a committee of business owners who understand the ups and downs of being right at the coalface.

Each member of ISSBA has the opportunity to reap tremendous benefits from their involvement in the Association and their gain will depend greatly on their reason for subscribing to the most influential small business association in East Anglia.

Members have the opportunity to network with and gain support from like minded small to medium sized businesses. Gain information, exchange views and draw on the experiences of others. Why reinvent the wheel if someone else already has the experience and knowledge to help you?

ISSBA facilitates networking and interaction between members through monthly social and business events. As a member, you will be entitled to a discounted fee for any events open to non-members. View future events on the home page or visit the events calendar.

Our monthly e-news is sent free of charge to members each month and contains details of forthcoming events, professional articles, comments and relevant business information. Members are also invited to submit a ‘Member of the Month’ article or an informative and useful article on any business topic.

Our Flagship Event. Our high profile business exhibition is held annually in May and is now our region’s most prestigious Business to Business Exhibition, ISSBA members benefit from a discounted price for exhibitor stands.. Supported by our sponsors, the event should not be missed – put your business in front of hundreds of contacts from across the region!

An online members’ directory where members can add their details and logo, available via the ISSBA website.
