We want our exhibitors to make profitable business connections and generate real sales. New ideas and investment will further grow the event and ensure that all exhibitors continue to have the best services possible. We intend to take Biz Expo to the next level this year by expanding the portfolio of exhibitors, attendees and activities within the event”, said Cotter.
Branigan says, “Biz Expo offers a fantastic way for corporates and SMEs to network and grow sales. with decision makers. We intend to grow on the success of the event to date by investing in exhibition content, growing footfall and making it a key B2B communication forum for existing and emerging markets”.
