With lockdown now officially over Sheila Smith, Expo Queen and owner of Your Leicester Business Expo and Your Northamptonshire Business Expo, has been quick off the mark confirming dates for two of the region’s favourite and most prestigious business exhibitions.
Your Leicester Business Expo will take place at the King Power Stadium in Leicester on the 9th November 2021, followed shortly afterwards by Your Northamptonshire Business Expo, back again at the Holiday Inn Corby on the 25thNovember 2021. However, these exhibitions, says Sheila, are more than a little bit different!
“Whilst we’re all so excited that face-to-face is finally back we’re offering a fabulous hybrid opportunity to businesses at both our exhibitions this year. Our exhibition hybrid offer ensures exhibitors can enjoy both the opportunities of face-to-face interaction with attendees as well as our online Expo securing absolute maximum exposure.
“I put this in place due to the phenomenal success our Virtual Business Expo enjoyed in October 2020 when we were still in lockdown. Going virtual attracted 960+ visitors from eight different countries along with 35+ exhibitors and five great guest speakers. It was a huge success and I wanted to ensure we kept a virtual element for these first two in person exhibitions. It works for visitors who are located at a distance as well as for our exhibitors who, let’s be honest, can never get to see everyone who attends however hard they try. This way exhibitors who choose to take part in our hybrid expo will be found online for an additional 10 days! It’s such an innovative and exciting way to network, connect, listen to great speakers and do business.
“Whether at Leicester or Northamptonshire – or both,” adds Sheila, “Our expos will feature 60+ exhibitors showcasing a wide variety of business products and services. Each business always brings something different to each exhibition and I cannot wait to see them and our visitors in November.”
Both exhibitions are free to attend on the day. Exhibition stand spaces cost from £275 (no vat) and can be booked online at www.yourbusinessexpo.co.uk.
Adds Janette Weedall of The Holiday Inn, Corby, “We’re delighted to once again host the Northamptonshire Business Expo. We’re really looking forward to welcoming exhibitors and visitors alike to network in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. It will be a great opportunity for businesses to make new connections and showcase their products and services.”
