Fourteen business owners from Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire have revealed their plans for Business Expo 3.0 at StadiumMK in Milton Keynes.
The event is styled as the UK’s first large-scale B2B exhibition and conference of its kind designed for international and national businesses outside the NEC and London.
In addition to 150 exhibitors there will be a line-up of keynote speakers backed by workshops covering topics including: breaking national boundaries with technology; research and business opportunities; funding business expansion at home and overseas; and an update on the rapidly changing social media, online community landscape.
The event takes place on 8 March 2013, with more than 1,000 delegates expected to attend.
“We believe it’s the first of its kind and it’s certainly the first time anything like this has been hosted outside the established venues in London and Birmingham,” said event organiser Victoria Beale.
UBM has moved a step closer towards the acquisition of US organiser Advanstar.
The American firm, valued at US$972 million (£599 million) specialises in fashion, licensing, life sciences and powersports events.
