March will see Chambers of Commerce across the Midlands region join forces to raise the profile of thousands of businesses in a week-long celebration.
The West Midlands Business Expo will see the collective efforts of Chambers across Herefordshire and Worcestershire, the Black Country, Coventry & Warwickshire, Shropshire and Staffordshire, with businesses given the opportunity to exhibit at the Virtual Expo, alongside a packed agenda of engaging business focused events.
Supporting businesses throughout Covid-19 has been the top priority for every Chamber of Commerce and the West Midlands Virtual Business Expo, which kicks off in March, will provide the ultimate event for firms to network, make new connections and grow, as the business world looks to future recovery in post-pandemic times.
Taking place between Monday 22 and Friday 26 March, the Expo comes at a time in which many firms have continued to struggle to stay afloat, despite a range of financial support measures put in place by the UK government.
Over five days, the Virtual Expo is expected to attract visitors from across the region with exhibitors manning their virtual stands to showcase their products and services. A range of informative business events will also be delivered during the week with each day having a local flavour, demonstrating the unique strengths & opportunities across the five West Midlands areas.
Chambers of Commerce across the UK have been at the forefront of supporting & advising firms through the COVID-19 pandemic and helping them to understand the latest developments, as well as acting as ‘the voice’ of their members to local, regional and national government.
Sharon Smith, CEO of the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, said: “The Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, together with our headline sponsor for the region Hewett Recruitment are delighted to be bringing this opportunity to businesses in the two counties and give Members and Non-members of the Chamber the chance to shine a spotlight on their businesses to the whole West Midlands region.
“After 12 months of missed events, exhibitions and opportunities for businesses the West Midlands Business Expo presents an amazing opportunity for businesses across Herefordshire and Worcestershire to get their brand seen by an expanded audience to what is usually offered and hopefully see them recuperate some business lost to cancelled exhibitions and events similar to this one.
“Collaborating with Chambers across the West Midlands for the virtual spring Expo presents a unique opportunity for businesses across the two counties to raise their brand profile as well as 24/7 access and an increased range of visitors and prospective customers that would not usually attend and exhibitions.
“We hope that you will be able to join us at what is set to be the first major business event of 2021 and a first from the region’s leading business support organisations.”
