Carrying on the theme of successful Business Expos across the North, and hot on the heels of the recent Lancashire Business Expo at Preston Guild Hall, organisers Shout! rolled out the North West Business Expo 2021 at Bolton Whites Hotel on 5 November. The event welcomed over 1,000 delegates throughout the day and featured exhibitors from across the region and beyond.
There was plenty of space available at the Premier Suite of the hotel, and the venue featured a climbing wall, beach, a pitch and putt plus a bowling alley sharing space with over 120 exhibitors. Jordan Conlin, Director of organisers Shout! Expos commented: “The event was a fantastic success for the great businesses taking part. Every exhibitor enjoyed promoting themselves to not just the visiting delegates, but their fellow exhibitors as well. We featured a great range of business sectors exhibiting from areas not just regional but from further afield too. Headline Partner, Manchester Metropolitan University and Charity Partner North West Cancer Research set the standard with striking stands full of information and goodies that greeted delegates as they entered the hall.
“Media Partner, Business Connect Magazine, took the opportunity to engage with businesses from a variety of sectors, and the response from exhibitors and delegates on social media and in personal messages has been outstanding.
“Lancashire Business Expo in September set the tone, bringing confidence back to the business community. On the back of that, the North West Business Expo exceeded even our own high expectations. It was incredible to see so many delegates chatting with our exhibitors. You could also see people catching up after such a long time. It was loud, hectic and exhausting, which is how it should be!
“It was a privilege to host this event. I’d like to say a huge thank you to all of our Partners and to Bolton Whites Hotel for their support. Business is certainly back in the North West.”
The North West Business Expo will return to Bolton Whites Hotel on Friday 21 October 2022, with the 2022 Lancashire Business Expo returning to Preston Guild Hall on Friday 25 March. Shout! Expo’s third Merseyside Business Expo will take place at the Exhibition Centre, Liverpool on Thursday 30 June 2022.
