OUR second Business Exhibition is set to take place on November 20. The stands sold out in a matter of days and, based on the experience of our first exhibition, we expect more than 300 visitors during the day.
That highlights the value of these types of events. The fact is that business exhibitions such as ours create fantastic opportunities for all companies, no matter what size or industry.
Whether or not you are exhibiting, it provides an alternative networking opportunity to promote your product or service to a broader group of professionals.
Exhibitions give you the opportunity to be more involved with the local business community, network with existing clients or forge links with new contacts to create a new customer or new supplier database.
Despite some necessary outlay for your firm – the cost of a stand, if you have one, and the time out of the business for those attending the event – the benefits of this powerful marketing tool can be tremendous.
Increase your brand visibility, assess your competition and extend the skills of your employees by allowing them to improve client liaison skills with face-to-face contact. Good customer handling skills are priceless for a company.
Use a business exhibition to create a good impression for your company and share best practice with like-minded business people.
Improve your knowledge and learn something new through the programme of workshops, seminars and speakers at the event.
Go along with an open mind. All meetings are a chance to engage with the local business community, to meet your next key client or to prompt a conversation that might put you at the forefront of people’s minds for recommendations.
Do not miss a great opportunity for you and your business. Get involved today.
Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce’s Business Exhibition takes place between 9.30am and 3.30pm at Mercure Milton Keynes Abbey Hill.
