As the exit out of lockdown begins to ramp up and a sense of normality is restored it has never been more important for businesses to gain expert advice and meet new customers, prospective partners and contacts ready for life post-pandemic.
The West Midlands Business Expo is set to be the first of its kind and the first major business event of 2021, with many keen to find brand new opportunities and prospects this event is expected to bring together businesses from across the West Midlands (virtually).
Sharon Smith, CEO of The Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are delighted to be bringing together so many businesses after the tough time that businesses have faced over the last 12 months. The first jointly held business expo will give many attendees the opportunity to meet new customers, hear from a range of business leaders as well as be part of the biggest business event of the last 12 months.
“As we start the roadmap to recovery it has never been a more vital time for businesses to begin thinking of ways to bounce back, the virtual expo will give people from around the region a platform to connect and form new relationships and create exciting opportunities.
“We are excited to be collaborating with other Chambers across the region to increase to the reach of our usual expo and will look forward to seeing as many attendees as possible.”
The event will see businesses set up their own virtual stands and be able to communicate with visitors and answer any queries to ensure a smooth and innovative experience. For more information on how exactly the virtual expo will work, please visit here www.hwchamber.co.uk/westmidlandsbusinessexpo.
