Business Expo draws the crowdsMar 11, 2013
More than 100 exhibitors and 1,400 visitors converged on stadiummk for Business Expo 3.0, organised by telemarketing company Rapid Sales Solutions’ managing director Victoria Beale.
The event attracted high-profile speakers on a range of business subjects and local and national exhibitors including Samtander, Costco, Philips, Toyota and business organisations the Institute of Directors, the Federation of Small Businesses and UK Trade & Investment.
It was opened by business minister Lord Younger (pictured), who spoke of how the city was forging a strong reputation for innovation and was becoming an attractive location for multi-national businesses looking to establish a foothold in the UK.
“Milton Keynes has such an impressive history of growth,” he said.
Labour’s shadow business secretary Chukku Ummuna held a question and answer session hosted by Milton Keynes Business Leaders, heading a panel of Labour peer Lord Parry Mitchell and MP Iain Wright alongside Dr Ann Limb, chair of the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership.
Plans are under way for a Business Expo next year.
Victoria Beale said: “I wanted to make a difference to the business community, providing a business exhibition with a central objective to provide a platform to do business and to ensure that visual snapshots of the exhibition remain firmly in the memories of everyone that attended.”
