Businesses can get inspired at popular free-to-attend show

T + L Business Show

Businesses across the region are invited to the ‘must-attend’ event of this autumn – the 2017 Tamworth and Lichfield Business Show, taking place at Drayton Manor Park on Wednesday 22 November.

More than 50 exhibitors and 200 visitors are expected to attend the highly anticipated show, which will offer expert advice, support, new skills and tips to help take your business to the next level – as well as invaluable networking opportunities.

Free of charge for visitors to attend, the show brings 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 will feature 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, will be there to 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.

Communication coach and business growth expert, Kim Arnold, will share her secrets on doing LESS marketing to win MORE customers by uncovering your business’s unique value to eclipse the competition. Learn how to get back in control of your marketing once and for all.

Social media consultant, Mark Saxby, will share 10 ways platforms like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn can help grow your business and increase your sales, while James Blackman, Managing Partner of Cocoonfxmedia Ltd, will deliver an innovative seminar on digital marketing and how to plan your marketing to achieve results.

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 Ian Pritchard, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Growth, Environment & Development Services, said:

“We are delighted to be working in partnership to present the Business Show that will offer businesses a wealth of information and networking opportunities for free. Making sure local businesses can access professional advice to help them grow is hugely important to the council, and we very much look forward to welcoming plenty of Lichfield District business representatives to this year’s event.”

Cllr Steven Claymore, Tamworth Borough Council’s Cabinet member for Regeneration, commented:

“The Tamworth and Lichfield Business Show is one of the biggest shows of its kind in the local area and is a 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 aims to bring business experts together under one roof to share their knowledge and experience.

“This is a great opportunity to meet some very inspiring entrepreneurs, get involved in a variety of interactive seminars and meet like-minded business people in the area. “It’s free to attend for visitors so I would really encourage local businesses not to miss out on this year’s show.”

Some exhibition stands, priced at £245 +VAT, are still available for businesses interested in showcasing their products and services at the show. For more information, please contact Paul Clavering on 01913 898495 or email
