Organisers of a big expo in Milton Keynes next year are projecting that it could attract 5,000 business visitors.
Earlier this year Business Expo 3.0 saw 100 exhibitors and 1,500 delegates at stadium:mk and organisers are confident they can build on this to create the largest business show outside of London and Birmingham.
Victoria Beale, CEO of Rapid Sales Solutions and founder of the Business Expo 3.0 said: “We could never have imagined the response we received to the first expo in 2013. We attracted national and international businesses to Milton Keynes including easyJet, Silverstone, Experian, but it was also a powerful platform for local businesses such as Mirus IT, David Lock Associates and Julia Charles Management.”
The 2014 event will also be held at stadium:mk, on Thursday March 6, 2013.
Victoria added that the event will see “some exciting and inspiring key speakers”, with 16 workshops taking place during the day covering topics from ‘lead generation’, ‘social media’, to ‘auto enrolment’ and ‘finance’.
“The Expo is the opportunity to bring like-minded people together, network, learn and be inspired.”
Leader of Milton Keynes Council, Andrew Geary, said: “We will once again be stressing the value delivered by local MK businesses on an international scale, and the strategic location that Milton Keynes provides to serve the global marketplace.
“Milton Keynes is always referred to as the place to be – and there are many, many good reasons for that.”
