North Lancashire Business Expo – 24th & 25th September 2017 2017-09-21T09:18:39+00:00

Unlike most other Expos where the focus is solely on Business to Business, the North Lancs Expo will focus both on Business to Business and Business to Consumer, with the Sunday’s emphasis being on training, skills, education and the future workplace. It is intended that the Sunday will be more of a family day, with interactive exhibits and displays, whilst the Monday will be a networking and information day for businesses. We will have special guest speakers and break-out sessions dealing with a range of current topics on the Monday.  The event is being backed by media sponsors, The Bay Radio and www.inthebay.co.uk, ensuring that both the B2B and B2C markets are targeted to maximise exposure and attendance for exhibitors. Live coverage on The Bay Radio will take place over both days, reaching tens of thousands of listeners across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.

We are becoming a very economically important area within the energy generation, defence, education, transport industries and health innovation sectors.  We are intent that the North Lancs Expo should represent the ever-growing co-operation of businesses around the Morecambe Bay Economic region.

Celebrating 120 years of business within North Lancashire

The Expo is organised by the Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce, and we are celebrating our 120th birthday by doing what we do best, promoting business across our beautiful district.  The Expo is going to be two day extravaganza, a B2B and B2C trade exhibition featuring stands, seminars, networking opportunities and free business advice from a host of organisations, set to attract 100 exhibitors and 3,000 attendees over the two days.

Sunday is to showcase North Lancashire, and surrounds, businesses and educational facilities to families and non-commercial visitors and the day’s events will be aimed at them. It will give our businesses a chance to specifically speak to future customers and employees regarding education, employment and commercial requirements.

The Monday will then be purely B2B and the day will start with an exhibitor to exhibitor networking session followed by key seminars and workshops focused on business.

We know we have a special district in terms of our whole offer and we want to showcase it far and wide.

The North Lancashire Expo provides an affordable, cost-effective marketing platform for any organisation that wants to increase its profile amongst a diverse assembly of enterprises. The two-day event focuses the attention of business owners, senior managers, entrepreneurs and investors, and engages people from all sections of the community.
