Friday 20th & Saturday 21st September

10am – 4pm


The North Lancashire Business Expo is a unique two day event which sees 110 businesses and thousands of visitors collide on a platform to showcase our amazing North Lancashire.

Being held on Friday 20th & Saturday 21st September 2019 @ The Expotorium Marquee, Lancaster Brewery. From 10am – 4pm on both days.

The Friday is a business showcase with exhibitors, stands and talks. After a successful launch year where we attracted over 100 exhibiters and more than 2,500 visitors we have our sights set on putting North Lancashire on the map with key media partners able to spread the message far and wide, The Saturday is all about our community with a focus on skills and training.

North Lancashire is an amazing place. It has unique locations, warm, friendly people and a rich, growing business community. We believe that it deserves a gateway to allow people and organisations to discover all of that in one place… to get a taste of why North Lancashire is important. Now and in the future.

We do that by bringing all the stakeholders in the region together for two days of discovery and connection with industry, education, local government and leisure & tourism.

The North Lancashire Business Expo is brought to you by Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce in association with Lancaster City Council.
