Blackpool Business Expo returns and sets up shop at new conference centre

A major business exhibition and conference is returning to Blackpool after a two year break due to covid.

The Blackpool Business Expo will see scores of businesses exhibit with stands to show off what they are about and give people the chance to meet up and network as well as pick up tips for new business.

The event will take place at the new Blackpool Conference and Exhibition Centre, with its shiny X[po]calator, giving key business figures a chance to take a look at the state-of-the-art facilities built to complement the Winter Gardens.

There will also be interactive learning huddles to let visitors huddle up and learn the skills needed to find new customers online.

Nichola Howard from organisers Launch NW said the past two years had been tough on many businesses and economic conditions were set to get worse so the 2022 event was particularly important for business owners to help ride the waves of uncertainty together.

She said that events such as this were the most cost-effective way to generate warm leads and putting yourself in a room full of potential local customers and suppliers will be the best investment you can make for yourself and your business.

She said: “For a lot of business owners, it's no longer a case of go big or go home, there's still too much economic uncertainty.

"Blackpool Expo is about starting small and showing up, it's the next right step for you and your business.

"With non-compulsory hand shakes and a little common sense Blackpool Business Expo will give business owners access to a room full of decision makers, an abundance of opportunities and the boost to their revenues they're looking for.

"As a small family-run business ourselves we felt strongly that event needed to focus on networking opportunities, learning from those who have been there and done it with our line-up of industry-leading speakers, and growth opportunities through our learning huddles.”
