Bolton Expo to support local businesses

Following the tremendous success of the recent Blackpool Expo, the team at Launch Events North West are now embarking on their third business expo, to be hosted in Bolton.

The Bolton Expo, to be held on Friday 15th May has the full support of the Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce. Business guru Diane Elebert-Morgan from the Chamber believes this will provide a powerful platform for organisations of all types and sizes to come together under one roof.

The Bolton Expo will create opportunities for organisations from across the region to promote their products and services to other local businesses. The expo will provide a fantastic environment for companies to network and forge strong business relationships.

Neil Clough, one of the most highly sought after motivational speakers in the UK will be imparting his passion and knowledge for business success during his keynote presentation at the event. Best known for winning the respect of Britain's business titans during his appearance on the BBC hit TV series The Apprentice, Neil has built his own highly successful sales training and recruitment business, which he’ll be showcasing during the expo. Neil’s demonstration of courage, commitment and self-belief are just some of the unique qualities many businesses aspire to.

There will be a number of local businesses exhibiting at the event and promoting their organisations to the local community. These range from large corporates to educational institutions and numerous SMEs.

Additionally, a variety of seminars will take place during the course of the day, focussing on themes based around business development and effective marketing, where delegates will be provided with practical advice on how to develop their businesses.

Nichola Howard, event organiser at Launch Events North West commented, “Bolton was selected as our location for this event as it is my home town. After seeing the success we’ve achieved at our first two expos, it felt right to bring this home to support my local business community.”

Nichola continued, “Expos are an excellent way for companies to build their brand presence. Companies that are exhibiting can engage with prospects before the event, meet with them face-to-face at the event and continue building a relationship with them after the event. Exhibitors at our Blackpool Expo found it a fabulous environment for collaborating and building partnerships.” One particular company that found the Blackpool Expo hugely beneficial was Lancashire based Marketing Incentives, who provide promotional merchandise to organisations across the region and further afield. Chris Naylor, Director at Marketing Incentives commented, “I’d recommend expos to any business looking to improve their brand awareness and subsequently increase their sales. Meeting a large number of prospects face-to-face and engaging with them will really help them achieve business success.“
