Leicestershire Business Expo – 27th September 2018
One of the largest events for East Midlands businesses returns to Leicester in September 2018. The Leicestershire Business Expo is a large event held at the King Power Stadium that brings together businesses of all sizes, and all sectors. There are not many events you can attend that showcase representation of global businesses, Council run schemes and owner managed businesses within one event. The event also benefits from speakers who discuss a range of issues affecting businesses – including trade, financial and lead generation issues.
DBS Managed Offices do not usually exhibit at events – our services are difficult to translate in to an exhibition stand when our own business centres are our biggest selling point – but in 2015, we took the plunge and exhibited at this event.
As a first-time exhibitor we faced the daunting task of trying to calculate what we would need, how we should present it and how to ensure the event remained cost-effective for us as a small business.
At the time we published our ‘do’s & don’ts of first time exhibiting which you can read HERE, it was an engaging and enlightening experience for us as a business and a worthwhile event!
This year we will not be exhibiting but we do recognise the importance of building relationships with local businesses, so we will be attending as guests. I personally fully recommend attendance at this event, it is one the best of its kind I have visited – you will be in for a long day, but the content of the speakers and the quality of businesses you will find there is well worth the inevitable tiredness. Don’t be too concerned about this though – there’s a perfectly stocked bar to celebrate your day at the end!
