Hatfield Porsche centre hosts Hertfordshire business meeting

DELEGATES from businesses across Hertfordshire rubbed shoulders during a lavish network meeting held at a luxury car dealership in Hatfield.

Porsche Centre Hatfield hosted a business network meeting organised by the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce, as more than 100 professionals mingled among a selection of the company’s finest and most stylish vehicles.

The event coincided with the 25th anniversary of Porsche’s presence in Hatfield – which the firm celebrated by giving away a free Porsche driving experience at Silverstone for one lucky attendee.

Porsche first came to Hatfield as Chariots of St Albans in 1986.

It has been based at its �6.7m site in Hatfield Avenue, Hatfield Business Park, since 2006.
