Blackpool’s first dedicated Business Expo

Plans for Blackpool’s first business expo have been announced. Taking place at Ribby Hall Village, February 25, 2015, Blackpool Business Expo is set to attract businesses from throughout the North West.

Co-organised by Blackpool-based management consultancy, Rosewood Keen Management Services (RKMS) and Launch Events NW, businesses are invited to exhibit, network and benefit from a wealth of free business information and advice.

Speaking about the expo, RKMS managing director, John Keen said: "As a Blackpool-based company, over the years RKMS have benefited from the success of attending and exhibiting at business expos in other areas throughout the North West.

“I want to allow local businesses in the Blackpool Fylde and Wyre areas to benefit by holding a local event, both as a catalyst for stimulating local business to business trade, whilst providing access to various support networks."

The company is passionate about using local companies where possible, and is hoping to promote this ethos by hosting Blackpool’s very first dedicated business expo.

With full support from Blackpool council, the event will empower local business communities by giving them a platform to showcase their products and services.

John added: “It’s evident that business people achieve greater success from communicating with their buyers and customers face to face. My vision is to encourage this by giving local businesses the opportunities to build solid relationships.” Event Organiser, Nichola Howard said: “This event will create networking opportunities amongst local companies, also reaching out to a wider audience to attract business into the area helping to build a thriving local economy from the grass roots up, this type of growth is sustainable for future generations to come.
