Visit The Thames Valley Virtual Expo (Reading) to connect with the local business community

COVID has affected the events industry and meant that we cannot hold our physical exhibitions in 2020. Hence, here at Great British Expos we are delighted to announce the Thames Valley Business Expo (Reading) will be running virtually. Our virtual exhibition is the ultimate event for businesses within the Thames Valley region, enabling you to deliver your company’s message to drive leads and revenue, make new connections and generally promote your business.

This year’s Thames Valley Expo will welcome 1000+  SMEs from across the region who are looking to network, generate contacts, meet new suppliers and even become a new supplier.

Our virtual event will still provide plenty of opportunity for engagement. Our Keynote Sessions & workshops will still involve live Q&A. Just because you can’t shake hands doesn’t mean there isn’t an opportunity to network. Attendees can meet each other virtually – connect with other visitors and exhibitors and schedule one-on-one appointments with each other. You’ll be able to set up group chats and breakouts.

Regardless of what stage you are in your business journey, there is something for everyone at this year’s expo. Don’t forget to confirm your attendance – we have limited tickets available.

Our passion is supporting regional business growth and development. With the COVID-19 outbreak presenting a significant challenge for SMEs we hope that these interactive sessions will benefit your business through this turbulent period. This is a great opportunity to discover new tools, acquire new skills and empower yourself to take your business forward.

We have selected a series of interactive Workshops and Masterclasses to address the issues that are a challenge for businesses in 2020. Not only are these sessions created to be an interesting and enjoyable way of gaining practical hands-on experience, they are also a way of picking up the knowledge that your company may be lacking & are full of practical ideas that you can apply immediately upon leaving the workshop.

Just because you can’t connect in person doesn’t mean your business relationships have to suffer. Each VIP guest will get unlimited opportunities to meet with other attendees on a 1-2-1 basis for 2 minute sessions throughout the day. 

We fully understand that Networking is a powerful tool, introducing you to a swath of new contacts & new opportunities. Over the past 9yrs we have enabled 50,000 SMEs to network and make connections across the UK.
