Staffordshire’s largest business show to bounce back at Uttoxeter racecourse

Post Category : FCM News

Let’s Do Business Expo – Staffordshire’s largest business show is bouncing back bigger and better at Uttoxeter Racecourse Staffordshire on 11 November following a break due to the pandemic.

Business from across the region have signed up to exhibit this year, set to be the busiest yet, and delegates can attend for FREE by registering via the Let’s Do Business website

Organised by Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce, the Expo is a showcase for the very best local companies to come together and promote their products and services to decision makers across the region.

It will give hundreds of business people one of their first and biggest opportunities to network post pandemic, enjoying face-to-face conversations with new and existing contacts after 18 months of virtual meetings.

Whilst the government has lifted most covid restrictions across England, the organisers recognise that keeping safe is a big priority for people. Hand sanitiser stations will be available, and people are welcome to wear face masks. There is plenty of outdoor space at Uttoxeter Racecourse for people to meet outdoors too.

In addition to over 100 exhibitor stands to visit, there will be a broad range of business support available with organisations such as the Department of International Trade and the Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire Growth Hub available to share knowledge and signpost opportunities for future growth.

If that wasn’t enough, there will be an inspirational speaker best-selling author Chris Thrall talking about his roller-coaster of a career, plus business growth seminars taking place in the Staffordshire Stand during the day.

Chris Plant, Director at Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce comments:

“I am so delighted to be able to offer local businesses the chance to attend Let’s Do Business again, after such a traumatic year. Businesses have fought hard to survive the pandemic, and now is the time to be proactive in a safe environment and seek new connections and opportunities to allow businesses of Staffordshire to flourish once again.

“We believe the event will offer a much-needed range of support and practical tools for both exhibitors and delegates, as we all try to return back to normal and push our businesses forward. We’ve got two years’ worth of business to catch up on!
“Thanks to everyone who has already booked an exhibition space or as a delegate – there are some stands left, so please book your space now.”
