This month sees the expanded North West Business & Hospitality Show return to the J36 Auction Centre near Kendal.

A wealth of the region’s businesses will be waiting to promote their services and products, and the event is also an excellent networking opportunity for companies wanting to develop.

Show organiser, Nick Hood, explains the philosophy behind the show: “Basically, we are trying to give businesses the chance to put themselves in the shop window to people across the North West.

“From the visitor side, there’s no reason not to attend - it’s a free event and you will meet a full range of people across the business spectrum.

“We have seminars and workshops running, and to top it off, we have a Market Street full of independent food and drink businesses, so you can come for lunch too.

“I’m a firm believer of the concept that you never know who your next customer is, and if your company is not visible at events like this, you may just miss an opportunity to form a new relationship.”

The show runs from 10am to 4pm on February 27 and 28 at the Exhibition Hall, J36 Auction Centre, Crooklands.
