BIG business will show its support for small business at a networking event in Mid Devon in March.

Kaba, a global security business with its UK headquarters in Tiverton Business Park, will play host to the Federation of Small Business's 'first Friday' networking.

Paul Spencer, marketing director for Kaba, said: "We're delighted to support this event which will bring regional businesses together. We recently achieved ISO environmental certification, and being more aware of local suppliers is a big tick in the box for our UK organisation."

Steve Lodge, who runs Oxygen marketing communications, and has organised the event said: "This is a great opportunity for small businesses to network and share ideas, and to meet up with an elite global firm on their doorstep. It's free for anyone to attend so I hope that business people will see the value in this excellent marketing opportunity."

Kaba will provide free tea, coffee and pastries at the event which runs from 7.30am until 9am on Friday March 7th. For details or to book your free place email
