Businesses across the region were invited to the ‘must attend’ event of this season– the 2017 Tamworth and Lichfield Business Show, which took place at Drayton Manor Park on Wednesday, November 22.
Dozens of exhibitors and over 200 visitors attended the highly anticipated show, which offered expert advice, support, new skills and tips to help take businesses to the next level – as well as invaluable networking opportunities.
Free of charge for visitors to attend, the show brought experts from various fields together under one roof for a packed programme of free talks, seminars and information stands – all designed to promote business growth.
The line-up featured several inspirational speakers including successful business owners and entrepreneurs, as well as seminars on subjects such as marketing, branding, networking, sales, social media and much more.
Keynote speaker, Rosie Ginday, founder of Miss Macaroon, delivered a talk about her amazing business story; how she does business differently and how sometimes a strong identity is all that a business needs to get its feet off the ground.
Other speakers included communication coach and business growth expert, Kim Arnold, who shared her secrets on doing LESS marketing to win MORE customers by uncovering your business’s unique value to eclipse the competition.
The Tamworth and Lichfield Business Show is organised by Tamworth and Lichfield for Business – a joint business support initiative between Tamworth Borough Council and Lichfield District Council.
Cllr Steven Claymore, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Regeneration, said: “The Tamworth and Lichfield Business Show is one of the biggest shows of its kind in the local area and is the must-attend event for the town’s growing businesses.
“Creating opportunities for growth and boosting the local economy is one of our priorities and this show always aims to bring business experts together under one roof to share their knowledge and experience.
“It was great to see an excellent turn out of visitors for this show, offering everyone the opportunity to meet some very inspiring entrepreneurs, get involved in a variety of interactive seminars and meet like-minded business people in the area.”
