The Stockport Expo 2019

The Stockport Expo was The Business Bible’s first Expo, taking place at the home of newly promoted Stockport County FC. GM Business Connect were there of course as Media Sponsors, with organiser James Caldwell from the Business Bible.

The event took place on the 4 July, after a busy week for the venue as it had hosted the Blossoms Concerts the week prior. Over 200 attendees came to the event, not including the Exhibitors already on the show floor, to meet/network and buy from the varied Exhibitors on the day. We asked James for his thoughts on the event: “Whilst many events will profess to attract thousands to its doors, in reality this is often not true. The challenge we had was being honest, setting realistic ambitions on what the first year would deliver for our exhibitors and attendees. We then had to meet those expectations. What was refreshing was the mix of different Exhibitors which had attended the event, Stockport Gin and Jeffrey’s Tonics had both independently signed up as exhibitors and were both making cash sales of their products on the day. Bringing card machines to the event so attendees could actually buy products on the day showed that the companies such as CostCo could clearly show what the value was to their business of attending events such as this.

“The Workshops went down amazingly, with Dave Richardson and Andy Preston’s workshops being sold out prior to the event. The more hands-on approach gave attendees the opportunity to gain more knowledge in smaller groups in the sessions. On the wind-down at the end of the event a number of Exhibitors stayed behind as the cash bar opened to discuss the day, showing that a mini community was starting to form with companies all collaborating together and getting on as people. As an event the Stockport Expo did everything we promised it would do, and we’ve already committed to a second event on 2 July 2020. We have a number of events on the horizon and in the planning stage, and we’re finding more  and more venues are pro-actively contacting us to host those Business Events.”

The Stockport Expo will return on 2 July 2020. For more information on the Stockport Expo contact James Caldwell on 07568 104 868 or email james@BizBible.co.uk
