|Park Inn backing the best in borough’s business
The Park Inn hotel at Leigh Sports Village is showing its support for the local economy and jobs by sponsoring Wigan Business Expo Twenty11, the borough’s biggest business event yet.
Akan Tahsin, General Manager said: "Park Inn Leigh is proud to be sponsoring the event. We're looking forward to Wigan Business Expo Twenty11 and meeting some of the best in local and regional business."
Naturally enough, they have a stand themselves on the day and they have offered special rates for all delegates and exhibitors. Expo attendees can get bed and breakfast on 13 and/or 14 October for just £57 a night.
More than 1000 buyers from across the region are expected to attend Wigan Business Expo Twenty11. The event will include an exhibition of more than 80 borough-based businesses, an informative seminar programme, plus an opportunity to arrange one to one meetings from buyers from major organisations.
The council’s regeneration team will be attending, as will senior figures from the local business community. The event is supported by major players including the Wigan Chamber of Commerce. Wigan President Miranda Barker said: "Wigan Business Expo Twenty11 presents an unmissable opportunity for our local businesses to promote their products directly to some of the biggest buyers in the North West and showcase their firms to literally hundreds of commercial customers.”
Last year’s ‘meet the buyers’ sessions were widely seen as a productive way for local firms to meet buyers from a number of public and private sector giants, with at least one major new contract arising.
A limited number of exhibition stands are still available, but these are selling quickly so businesses are advised to book as soon as possible. The stand options available are:
* 2m x 1m stand in a double box £250
* 2m x 1m stand in the Banqueting Suite (main exhibition lounge) £300
* 2m x 1m stand in the Legends’ Bar (reception & networking area) £350
* 3.5m x 4m corporate box for your company’s sole use £500
All prices include table, chairs and access to power / wireless network. Stands can be booked at www.wigan.gov.uk/expo2011.
