Book yourself into one of the above organised but relaxed networking events.

However, did you know that...this Get Connected Expo differs from a 'standard' business expo, as all visitors are encouraged to network with each other throughout the event, not only in the Speed Networking sessions. As you enter as a visitor into the event, you will be given a lanyard with a business card holder so that you can display your own business card, and also invited to wear a business classification badge to help you easily identify people from particular business types. This should help aid effective networking by enabling you to make useful connections in industries that especially interest you. The categories include:

  • Manufacturers
  • Property
  • IT
  • Financial
  • Retailers and Distributors
  • Business to Business Services
  • Business to Consumer Services
  • Publishers
  • Transportation
  • Marketers
  • Charities
