Now in its fourth year, The Business Showcase South West is taking place again at The Ashton Gate Stadium on Wednesday 17th May from 10.00am-4.00pm.
This free-to-attend business exhibition is welcoming over 200 exhibitors from across the region and up to 2500 attendees. It has now become the largest business event in the South West, serving as a day-long networking opportunity in Bristol.
For the first time, delegates will be taking part in an expert-led workshop from Google on how to leverage Social Media for Business.
TEDxBristol will also be running a major workshop and exclusively announcing the date for their 2017 event. There are also 7 free seminars, 3-speed networking sessions and 3 keynote speakers.
The event offers free travel, parking and even a professional LinkedIn-style profile headshot for all who attend too.
The Business Showcase South West has become the largest free business event for the South West region, celebrating the best in innovation, creativity and enterprise. Previous speakers have included icons such as Baroness Brady, Levi Roots and Gerald Ratner.
On the May 17 the keynotes will include the youngest and most successful winner of investment on Dragon’s Den – Jordan Daykin, the 2014 Winner of The Apprentice – Mark Wright and MD of Trinity Mirror South West, Sarah Pullen.
The next event on May 17 is sponsored by Soitron, Bluepoppy, Bristol Waste, West of England Growth Hub, Cabot Circus and City of Bristol College.
The Showcase was founded by Bristol-based entrepreneur and broadcaster Jamie Breese who has presented on TV for all the major networks from BBC and ITV, to Sky and The Discovery Channel whilst operating business events in the region for the last 9 years.
He explains: “We are all set for a huge year. The two Showcases at The Ashton Gate Stadium on May 17 and October 11 this year, represent excellent value for exhibitors and a superb opportunity to connect with so many great businesses for delegates – from global brands to SMEs. I want the Showcase to be a business-packed experience that delegates will feel compelled to stay at all day long”.
