After highlighting the success of the West Sussex Business Expo in last month’s issue, here we further introduce B2B’s second Sussex-based business event of 2017 – the Brighton Business Expo

Taking place at Brighton Racecourse on 5th October 2017 at 10:00am until 4:00pm, this free-to-attend business show will provide you with a hive of creativity and activity from both the seminar programme, featuring high-paced speed networking, and inspirational keynote speakers, as well as from a variety of exhibitors showcasing the very best of local and regional businesses. Just like with the West Sussex Business Expo, Brighton Business Expo will provide exhibitors and visitors with a vast array of business advice and speed networking opportunities, ensuring you get the absolute most out of the day.

The Brighton Business Expo is set to attract an audience of more than
 300-400 visitors of businesses looking to forge new relationships with local suppliers and be inspired in free seminars and workshops. B2B’s expos attract a wide range of exhibitors, from accountants to website designers and legal specialists to support organisations; but they all have one thing in common – they’re exhibiting to showcase their latest products and business services that will either allow you to work more efficiently or to help you grow your enterprise.

Amanda Jones, Basepoint

Speaking after last year’s Brighton Business Expo, Mike Monk said: “The first Brighton Business Expo was received very well. We had some great feedback from exhibitors and visitors alike, saying how the event met their expectations and had a great feel about it.” Taking this into consideration and after witnessing the buzz at May’s expo at Fontwell Park Racecourse, there’s no doubt that Brighton Business Expo will continue along these lines of success!

So far – and months in advance – over 20 stands have been sold to local businesses, and just some of these exhibitors will include Worldpay, Acumen Business Law, Basepoint Centres Ltd, Catax, C Brewer & Sons Ltd and Coast to Capital. Of course, not all exhibitor stands have yet been filled and the ever-growing exhibitor list will see more confirmations in due course, so keep your eyes peeled!

“B2B expos are great for getting your name out there and are a great place to strike up new relationships with other businesses and potential clients. People that approach you at expos usually have an interest in your product/service so getting quality leads is a great benefit,” said Basepoint’s Amanda Jones. She continued: “Brighton has a lot of great businesses and networking events so it’s important to make yourself known to get the benefit of being in a vibrant and exciting business community.

Lloyd Meheux, C Brewer & Sons

Marketing Manager at C Brewer & Sons, Lloyd Meheux also commented: “The Brighton Expo for us, is a great way to network with other local businesses, share knowledge and hopefully pick up a few sale leads – everyone needs paint in some form! Having two branches in Brighton plus one in Hove means that this is an important area for us and the large number of businesses in Brighton makes the exhibition a worthwhile visit.”

Of course, stand packages are still available, offering exhibitors to choose whichever one works best for them and best represents their business. These include Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum packages, all of which provide businesses with a range of different sized stands and additional promotions.
