Exhibitions are a powerful marketing tool for businesses of all shapes and sizes. You might invest thousands into advertising with only a percentage of that reaching your target market; an exhibition doesn't just advertise your business, it gives you the opportunity to showcase your produce or service but maybe more importantly, interact personally with both consumers and suppliers.

Customers, competitors and suppliers will attend an exhibition to see and experience your business service first hand, to meet you face to face and to get their questions answered right there and then. It is the perfect platform for you to interact personally, not just to attract new customers but to get instant feedback and opinions directly from the people that count. It is a valuable opportunity to sell yourself as well as your business, and there is often a sense of camaraderie at an exhibition that leads to lasting business relationships being established.

There is of course often a competitive element in the room! Time is limited, and as much as your potential customers are present, so too are your competitors – you need to command attention in a professional yet persuasive manner. If you are manning a stand, it needs to present your company clearly, be approachable and offer something to catch the eye of the milling crowds!

And there will be plenty of those at the Rugby Business Expo. Boasting a wide variety of seminars, networking and lead generation, make sure you put Thursday 14th March 2013 in your diary now and head to Warwickshire College Conference and Exhibition Centre where from 8am, we welcome Keynote speaker Steve Orchard, CEO of Rugby FM at the pre-event networking session and breakfast prior to the show opening its doors to visitors at 10am.

The Exhibitor package includes a 2 x 2m stand to showcase your goods and services, the opportunity to attend business seminars, an Exhibitor programme listing including logo and 50 words, B2B breakfast and lunch and a prize draw entry featuring unique and exciting prizes.

A packed programme of events then runs as follows:-
