Networking Breakfasts: Pre- Expo Event
The UK’s Biggest Free Regional Networking Breakfasts. Held on the morning of each expo, these pre-Expo breakfast events are extremely popular and often attract up to 200 business leaders. They are a great way to begin your exhibition day. Arrive at the venue between 7.30am -9.00am, enjoy a tasty breakfast, network and then sit back and gain motivation from the keynote address by a leading UK business personality. Head to the expo at 9.00am and be one of the first to get your delegate bag with promotional offers worth £100+.
The pre-Expo breakfasts are always oversubscribed so it is advisable to book your place early to avoid disappointment.
Meet 40 new contacts in 30 minutes. Speed networking is the quickest and most effective way for you to make contact with potential suppliers, partners or clients. Historically, all of our networking sessions are completely packed out throughout the day. To ensure everyone has an opportunity to participate, we hold several speed networking sessions per day, including a ladies only networking session.
1-2-1 Business Matters
Our 1-2-1 ‘business matters’ booths allow you to meet industry experts on a one to one basis to acquire advice and guidance on the challenges you face during your day to day work or the running of your company. Whether it be accountancy, HR, marketing, cash flow, funding or simply business development challenges, there will be an expert available and ready to talk to you about your business needs and offer practical advice.
Live Q & A Business Panels
Our Live ‘SME Today’ Q & A Business Panels comprises a group of business entrepreneurs, from wide ranging fields, offering advice, insight and tips on how to get ahead in the corporate world. At each event our fantastic group of experienced business leaders tell it like it is and identify with the challenges of being in business today. Some members of the panels are at the coalface of industry, having set up their own business and turned it into a huge success. Others have worked their way to the top in a corporate environment.
The ethos behind our business is giving back and that is why we ensure that our regional events are always about business AND community. To date we have donated over £150,000 towards local and national charities and are looking to increase this year. We never charge an entrance fee to attend our events however we do ask that delegates make a voluntary donation for the Expo breakfasts that will be donated towards a worthy charity.
