LEIGH’S biggest business networking event will spring into action for its sixth annual appearance in the town at a new venue.

The Leigh Business Expo, which is run by Launch Events NW, will be held this Spring in the new setting of Leigh Leisure Centre on Wednesday, May 22, between 10am and 3pm.

The free event gives more than 50 entrepreneurs and business in the area the chance to showcase their work and develop contacts.

Nichola Howard, from Leigh, who runs the event, said: “Most of us will have started 2019 off by promising to get in shape, feel fitter and be stronger, and we should be thinking about our businesses in the same way. That’s why Leigh Leisure Centre is the perfect new venue for the expo’s sixth year.

“Like any workout, you will feel the benefit of coming along to Leigh Business Expo whether you only have an hour to spare or you’re free to spend the day with us.

“We are passionate about helping local businesses gain the benefit of building new relationships, connecting with local suppliers and raising awareness of their brand.

“Business expo’s are a perfect place to do this – and we look forward to seeing the Leigh business community join us.”

The expo is open to all businesses from Leigh, Wigan and the surrounding areas as far afield as Liverpool, Warrington and Manchester, as it is situated on the East Lancashire Road.

There are still exhibitor slots available at the Leigh Business Expo.
