Business Expo 2019

Wednesday July 17 2019

Join us at the Lakeside Park Hotel in Wootton for the biggest day of the year for business networking

The Chamber’s flagship event moves to the summer for the first time, making the most of the stunning setting at the Lakeside Park Hotel and the opportunities for extended networking and increased footfall.

It’s the biggest day of the business calendar, full of potential opportunities for you to grow your business base.

“We know that the Chamber’s Business Expo is a huge part of the Island’s calendar,” says the Chamber’s CEO Steven Holbrook. “Businesses use Expo as their premier opportunity to promote themselves, to meet up, to entertain key contacts and to make the most of the high value networking on offer. This year we’re really excited to be making the move to July where the better weather will allow us to grow the event even more, with larger marquees and extended networking opportunities outdoors and at either end of the day.

“Last year’s Expo was our biggest yet and the exhibitor stands sold out in record time. We’re anticipating very high demand this year so we recommend you move quickly! If you’re in business on the Island, you’ll be at Expo.”

If you’re in business on the Isle of Wight you’ll want to be there. Doors open at 10am and it’s free entry for visitors until 5pm.

During the day look out for the seminars, networking sessions and Expo-exclusive offers from exhibiting businesses.
