North Lancs Expo – it’s a wrap, and a great success

Lancaster and District Chamber of Commerce is extremely pleased to announce that the inaugural North Lancs Expo was an outstanding success for both exhibitors and visitors alike.

With 100 exhibitions and over 2,000 visitors the EXPO was designed to showcase the very best of business in North Lancashire.

The President of the Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce, the organisation that designed, organised and hosted the Expo stated:

“I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone that made the event possible. To our sponsors, to our volunteers, to the Chamber Team but primarily to the exhibitors. The effort and thoughts that they put into their stands was truly remarkable and it was amazing to hear the conversations going on and the connections being made. Ultimately the Chamber is here to support and facilitate local business, but it is you the people in those companies that actually makes the magic happen!

“Plans are already afoot for the 2018 EXPO which will come back bigger and better so watch this space for more information. We would absolutely love to hear your feedback on the EXPO so that we can improve the event going forward.

“The EXPO has kick-started the Chamber as we move forward positively with record numbers of new members joining every week. I really do encourage you all to get involved as the Chamber has important work to do in the coming months.

“For now, thank you all once agai


n for joining us. Together we are indeed a force to be reckoned with. This is a fantastic area with huge potential and I truly believe that we are right on the cusp of a really exciting period.”

The Expo itself was experimental in itself and deviated from the normal tried and tested format of a Business to Business (B2B) Expo by having a day dedicated to the community on the Sunday yet it proved to be an overwhelming success.

Vicky Lofthouse, Chief Executive Officer of The Chamber, said: “We believe we have well and truly been vindicated by running a two-day event, and focussing on the community on one day, and B2B the next. Whilst we don’t think we pioneered the idea, I think we have certainly set the new standard for regional Expos!

“I’d like to thank all our exhibitors, and the staff at Lancaster Brewery who helped put on such a great event. In addition I would like to thank our main sponsors The Bay Radio, Lancaster City Council, Black bear IT, Lancashire Manufacturing Growth Fund, Lancaster University, and Uniform and Leisure, as well as all our other sponsors. We really look forward to 2018”.
