The Value of Exhibiting

By The Business Show

The Business Show has always been passionate about providing a platform for SMEs, startups and aspiring entrepreneurs, giving them the information and support they need to develop. This year, the event is expected to bring in an audience of 30,000 this November 16th and 17th. The show began in order to help people start, grow, or develop their businesses, giving a fast-track ticket for knowledge and advice that would ordinarily take a lot of time, effort, and money to collect. The resources are being placed into your hands at The Business Show and it’s up to you to take advantage of this opportunity.

The 2022 edition of the show is set to be the biggest yet with extraordinary keynotes from former dragon Piers Linney, serial entrepreneur and businessman Mark Dixon, and winner of The Apprentice 2022 Harpreet Kaur. They started from the bottom and worked their way up in the world of business; you too can do the same. There are also 750 exhibitors showcasing their products and services which can help your business to run more efficiently and grow to new and exciting heights. There are 200 seminars on every industry and topic you can imagine and expert-led, interactive masterclasses from some of the biggest names in business including Dell Technologies, Santander, and The UK Export Academy from The Department for International trade.

The Business Show also aims to give everyone a platform, no matter their gender, race, or background. This year the show is also celebrating fantastic women in business with the Female Leader of The Year Award. In male-dominated industries, The Business Show is passionate about promoting women’s presence in higher positions of power. This makes it all the more exciting that there are keynotes from inspiring women such as Harpreet Kaur from The Apprentice, Carrie Timms from Meta, Claudine Reid from PJ’s Community Service, Jodie Pritchard from Citizens Advice, Carol Frost from Metro Bank, Debbie Bullock from Aviva, Deepa Shah from Bupa, Bhavneet Chahal from GoSkills, and Susan Clews from ACAS. The Business Show encourages women in business to attend the event and network with other individuals in the same position, whether you are building your company up or aspiring to start your own business. You will find an opportunity to connect with others and grow your contact list. You won’t find as many like-minded people in the same place as at The Business Show this year.

Exposure

By joining The Business Show as an exhibitor, you increase your exposure as a business even before the event begins. You get listed in the printed and digital copy of the show guide that gets posted to 30,000 visitors before the event. You also get listed on the website with your logo, bio, social handles, a website link, and you can add articles and videos to your page. The website garners thousands of views and your listing stays up all year round for everyone to see. This promotes your business, products, and services well in advance of the show and even after the show if a visitor decides in hindsight that they want to make a purchase from you or find out some more information. The Business Show is Europe’s largest business event and captures the attention of entrepreneurs and business owners alike. The people viewing the website are likely to be the exact people you want to be exposing your business to.

It will be a fast-paced and exciting environment.

 

Networking opportunities

When exhibiting at The Business Show, the networking opportunities are endless.

These relationships can be long and lasting and mutually beneficial.
