The Expo, which takes place on Sunday 23rd & Monday 24th September at Lancaster Brewery, sees businesses and visitors collide on a platform to showcase North Lancashire.

Sunday is all about community, with a focus on skills and training. Monday is a business showcase with exhibitors, stands and talks.

An programme of entertainment is planned for the Sunday for families. This includes an interactive drama workshop with Pyjama Drama, performances by Ludus Youth Dance co, Bernesto The Great, and the Bay Beat Street Band. Visitors will also be able to meet Lancashire Fire and Rescue’s 999 squad and climb aboard their fire engine.

The second day features a series of TAP Talks conducted by special guest speakers. Topics covered will include ‘Lancaster’s District Ambitions’, ‘Data Driven Leadership’ and ‘Work smarter, not harder’.

The Panel Discussion, Exhibitor Networking and all of the Tap Talks will be held within Lancaster Brewery. The duration of each Tap Talks is 20 minutes plus Q&A. Google will be hosting two Digital Garage Workshops.

The event has been organised by Lancaster and District Chamber of Commerce and is backed by Lancashire Business View as media partner. Vicky Lofthouse, chief executive officer of Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce, said: “I am so very excited that the Expo is only days away. The team and I have been busy ensuring we are ready to go live with the second instalment. "With the main marquee decked in red and a jam-packed timetable of activities on both days, this year is set to be spectacular. I simply can’t wait."
