The South West Expo (Swindon) returns Virtually on 16th December 2020

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has developed throughout 2020, the events industry has faced an unprecedented time of risk and uncertainty.  Many organisations have postponed or simply cancelled events.

However, the team at Great British Expos have decided to move their South West Expo 2020 event online, and are running a virtual exhibition on 16th December.

Great British Expos have been working for the past 3 months on developing a virtual platform which includes a wide range of features to reflect a real exhibition environment. This includes virtual stands, interactive keynote stage, a visitor networking lounge and workshop session areas with the ability to live stream or pre-record content/Q&A sessions.

Great British Expos Director Alec Jones-Hall said: “The industry has been hit very hard since March 2020 with Covid-19. The world has changed, and we have had to adapt. We have  had to divert all of our attention into the virtual world to deliver a world-class virtual exhibition environment, so that our exhibitors can stay connected with SMEs and continue to grow their businesses.

Attending the South West Expo will give SMEs a huge advantage post COVID-19. Business owners will get the opportunity to network with 800+ other SMEs who will be attending the virtual business expo and using it as a platform to make new connections, meet new suppliers, receive inspiration and be motivated to take their business forward in 2021”

The South West Expo will take place online on the 16th December with a virtual exhibition hall, crafted to emulate real-life event spaces. Over 80 exhibitors will be showcasing their latest products and services. Delegates can engage on the enhanced interactive stands through the video, live chat, and product demonstration features.

Visitors can book one-to-one time slots for video conferences with delegates, mirroring the interaction you would expect at a real exhibition.

Attending the South West Expo gives small business owners a huge advantage during this pandemic. Join 800 other small business owners who will be learning how to grow their business by hearing from expert speakers & innovative exhibitors while building valuable contacts via our 6 live networking sessions.
