The Northern Business Exhibition

The Northern Business Exhibition is the largest show in the North of England and takes place in Manchester every year. This year we will be exhibiting on March 12th & 13th. See our profile here.

Thousands of professionals attend the exhibition every year. It has become the go-to event in the North for anyone growing a business or even starting one.

There is a sheer volume of networking opportunities, training and workshops available to delegates. It’s easy to see why it’s one of the best business expos you can get tickets for.

What will we be doing at the Northern Business Exhibition?

Ben and I will be offering 1-1 Expert appointments. Come along and see us for a consultation on your digital marketing strategy.

These appointments are 100% free and are usually fully booked before the day of the show. It’s worth getting your name down at the start of the show.

Ben is also speaking at the event about Google Ads. As a former Googler, Ben has a wealth of digital marketing expertise and has spoken at many events in Manchester. Expect some valuable insights on how you can implement or improve your digital marketing strategy. The talk is called Google Ads & Your Website: Your Number One Sales Person

Finding the right business advice can often range from difficult and time consuming, to downright costly. The Northern Business Exhibition aims to match business professionals with industry experts to receive personalised business advice on a variety of topics.

As well as digital marketing, if you come along to the Northern Business Exhibition you can expect to find information on:

  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Social Media
  • Trademarks & IP
  • Finance
  • Legal issues

As you can see, there’s a heavy focus on marketing and promotion at this biz expo.

Google Digital Garage

The Expo will be partnering with Google Digital Garage from Google. Again the heavy emphasis on digital marketing strategy is evident. If you are a startup or dipping your toes into paid advertising, Digital Garage is a fantastic resource.

They will run six sessions will run over the two days of the show, on a variety of topics which are:

  • Social Media Strategy
  • Introduction to Digital Advertising
  • Know your Business with Data
  • Stay Safe Online in 2018
  • Get Your Business Visible on Google
  • Build Your Brand Online

Our expertise complements that of Google Digital Garage, but our consultations will be geared around more advanced strategies. We will look at things like conversion rate optimisation, reducing wasted spend and maximising profit.

We are also a full-service Manchester digital agency, meaning we don’t just offer advice, we can implement those strategies together with you.

Seminar & Workshop Masterclasses

At the Northern Business Exhibition, there’s a full programme of topics that savvy business owners will want to get their hands on. That’s where we will be speaking.

There are both seminars and more intimate workshops. Participation is free, so if you’re a delegate its well worth attending as training like this is often delivered at a premium.

Networking Opportunities.

Every business can benefit from networking. It’s a great marketing tool.
