More than a hundred business leaders gathered at the Preston Digital Marketing Roadshow on Wednesday 8th November at the Best Western Park Hall Hotel in Charnock Richard to meet the industry’s leading experts- including Google.
The free event, hosted by Launch Events North West, piloted successful ‘huddles’ to offer a new way to get up close to leading experts at large events. Visitors fired key questions at the experts while participating in roundtable discussions on topics such as generating sales online and preparing for the upcoming data protection regulations, GDPR.
Along with ‘huddles’, visitors learned more about mastering Google with a free workshop delivered by the search engine giant, and about the business support available in the county thanks to a keynote speech from Steven Cochrane from Lancashire’s Business Growth Hub, Boost.
Now, the Digital Marketing Roadshow team plans to hold a series of workshops to offer further advice and guidance on the event’s most popular digital marketing topics.
Nichola Howard, director of Launch Events North West, said: “I set up the Digital Marketing Roadshow as I constantly met business owners like myself who weren’t sure where to turn for the right advice to help their businesses flourish online.
“It was fantastic to conclude the Digital Marketing Roadshow tour in Preston – but it was clear that business owners still have questions when it comes to digital marketing.
“We can’t wait to launch a series of workshops to give businesses across the North West the chance to delve deeper into key topics such as GDPR and search engine optimisation.”
