“By 9:30 am I was agreeing new business”
Elizabeth Adlington exhibited at last year's Expo with her business, Adlington Young Executive Coaching, and said: “The Expo kicked off soon after 8 am and by 9:30 am I was agreeing new business. The venue worked perfectly and conversation buzzed all day. It felt more like a reunion than an Expo, and definitely worthwhile!
“What a good day it turned out to be. Everything was well planned by Buckinghamshire Business First, which filled me with confidence that it would be a day well spent.”
Be the first to learn about the 2020 Buckinghamshire Business Awards
We will be launching the 2020 Buckinghamshire Business Awards at the Expo, giving those in attendance the inside track on the new categories being added for 2020.
Reduce your energy consumption in our #NetZeroBucks Zone
#NetZeroBucks is a campaign that we have launched at Buckinghamshire Business First to create a net-zero Buckinghamshire economy.
Our #NetZeroBucks Zone at the Expo is sponsored by Aylesbury Vale District Council and will be packed full of businesses that can provide products and services to help local businesses reduce their carbon emissions in areas such as waste, lighting, heating, packaging, transport and more.
The Business Support Zone
It’s not just loads of businesses gathering in one place at the Expo, loads of business support organisations and helpful services will be stationed in the Business Support Zone too. So after you’ve struck up plenty of new relationships with businesses, and start to wonder how you will manage to make the most of them all, visit the very organisations who can offer you advice, funding, services and more.
Kick off the day by learning about ‘The Workplace of the Future’
You can start networking even before the Expo officially opens while learning all about the workplace of the future at Buckinghamshire Local Enterprise Partnership’s AGM.
Free parking is available at the venue, but is limited, so where possible we would recommend sharing a lift.
