North Lancs Expo – another excellent event

4 October 2019

We would like to say a huge thank you to the organisers of the North Lancashire Business Expo. For the third year in a row, this was a fantastic, well-attended event – there were well over one hundred businesses and literally thousands of visitors. This was the busiest Expo so far, proof that this is fast becoming one of the region’s must-attend events.

The two-day event, which takes place in the Expotorium Marquee at Lancaster Brewery, in the heart of the city, focuses on both business-to-business and business-to-consumer. And we had a fantastic spot – right opposite the entrance, across the aisle from the event organisers, Lancaster and District Chamber of Commerce.

As has been the format in previous years, the event was split into two separate days. Friday was all about business, providing an opportunity to network with other local businesses, while Saturday was intended to be more of a family day, with a number of interactive exhibits and displays.

Possibly the highlight of this year’s show was Si Bellamy, Head of Eden Project International, who gave us a more detailed look into the plans submitted for a northern version of the popular attraction, to be built on Morecambe Bay’s seafront. The plans are being considered by Lancaster City Council and, if approved, could see the complex open as early as 2023.

Vicky Lofthouse, Chief Executive Officer of the Chamber, said: “The team and I are immensely proud to have delivered the Expo for the third year running and it has been the best one yet. I thank my colleagues for their unstinting work to make the Expo happen.  However, the Expo isn’t about the Chamber; it’s about the amazing businesses of North Lancashire, our media team, our sponsors and most importantly our visitors that attended over the two days whom we were able to show off how amazing North Lancashire is and the businesses within.”

The event reinforces just what an amazing place North Lancashire really is – amazing locations, fantastic people and a buzzing business community. Book us in for 2020.
