Hundreds of entrepreneurs came together to network at the largest Blackpool Business Expo to date

More than 300 visitors from organisations across Lancashire attended Blackpool Business Expo.

Visitors met with a range of exhibitors including business support agencies Boost Business Lancashire and Blackpool Unlimited and professional services firms 828 Law and Smart Business IT to get tips on boosting their trades.

This year saw the debut of ‘learning huddles’, where there was access to expert advice on key business topics such as cyber protections and social media marketing, as well as visiting a workplace well-being zone and networking drop-in area.

Nichola Howard, of Launch Events North West, set up Blackpool Business Expo, which was held at The Village on Wednesday, September 26, after recognising a lack of free, quality networking and advice for business owners like herself.

She said: “It was fantastic to have the support of the town’s business community to host our largest expo yet – we can’t thank exhibitors and visitors enough for creating such a buzz at the event.

“This year we wanted to try something different with our learning huddles to give visitors a chance to have an in-depth discussion about topics that matter most to businesses in 2018 – and it worked really well.

“It was great to see visitors walk away with not only new contacts, but new knowledge that can support them to grow their businesses. Can’t wait to be back next year to see how businesses have progressed and to reach even more new entrepreneurs.”
