Expos are opportunities to see what is in the market, network with other people in the industry and find new gaps which you can exploit. Luckily for you, there are many events taking place in Scotland throughout the year such that if you miss one, you can always find a similar one and get the connections and information you require to keep your business going. Let’s take a look at what we have for the year.
A business expo where you can significantly benefit is the Expo Scotland set to take place on the twenty-second of May, 2018.
You can exhibit your products at the event where you can get to market them to people who are willing to negotiate contracts. Perks of being an exhibitor include free parking and the availability of premium spaces. You can also hire items such as tables, cloths, power outlets and other equipment which will reduce the hassle required to set up for the visitors coming to see your products. Exhibiting in this event starts at only one hundred and seventy-five pounds, making it affordable to businesspeople starting out in the industry.
Location & Date
The activities will run from 9 in the morning to 3 in the afternoon at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland.
This one-day event focuses on bringing together great minds in various types of businesses under one roof. Having been successful the last five times in Hampden Park, the function is back. The principal areas of focus are small businesses and mid-sized businesses.
One of the key motivations that make people attend expos is that they hope to meet like-minded individuals in their lines of businesses with whom they can forge a connection that is beneficial to them. Here, you will meet people who are open to conducting business with you and hence, you can expand your circle of influence.
The event is free, and all you need to do is to book a ticket in advance. There will be three seminar areas with sessions running the entire time. If you wish to break from the talks, you will have access to the exhibition area where you can meet various exhibitors and probably negotiate a deal for your business.
You also get to learn. Business is a cycle of learning and getting to hear the mistakes that other people have made in their ventures can help you tread in the right direction. There are lots of tips availed to attendees as well as education on the upcoming trends and their value.
