Why Exhibit,  and who should Exhibit at a Get Connected Expo?

Here's why you should SERIOUSLY consider exhibiting your business at a Get Connected Expo:



Professional - We provide the professional features that mark the event as good quality, such as professionally designed and printed Show Guides given to all visitors (and exhibitors!) which people can take away afterwards and use as a useful directory of local businesses. We provide quality Show Bags that make it easy for visitors to collect the business cards and leaflets from exhibitors. A quality separate bespoke website for each Expo event helps to attract attention.


We make it easy for you to Exhibit - You can turn up as an exhibitor to a Get Connected Expo with just a smile and some business cards, or you can have a sophisticated pop up banner and nice table display, it's up to you what you think will work best for you. As someone once said, 80% of success in life is simply showing up. Of course, thoughtful preparation can help you make the most from an event, and Get Connected will even give all exhibitors a guide as to what they can do to maximise the results from the opportunity.


Stand out from the crowd - Exhibiting shows you mean business and gives you the ability to open conversations


Get your brand recognised, don’t let your competitors take the initiative.


Get Connected Events are free to attend - Visitors can attend the Expos free of charge, encouraging participation by more people.


Be recognised as part of the regional business community - exhibiting alongside other businesses from the region can help your business be recognised as part of the regional business scene.


Platform to launch a new product or Service, or test a new product, conduct a survey


Build business partnerships or alliances


Benefit from Pre-event marketing - Benefit from exposure for your business in the run-up to the event. As a significant regional business event, hundreds of business people will be visiting the event website

- Social Media promotion

- Link and company logo featured on the bespoke event website


Grow your database- Build your marketing database more systematically and effectively with a data gathering campaign run from your exhibition stand. For example you can make your stand capture people’s attention with a simple business card prize draw, competition or other idea.


Opportunity to invite prospects to meet - Some exhibitors will use their stand as a ‘neutral’ venue to invite prospects to come and meet them. Invitations can be sent out to their hot prospects, and whether they are able to turn up or not, can find it a useful ‘excuse’ to engage with them.


What type of companies should exhibit?

Get Connected expos are suitable for exhibitors from small and medium sized companies (SME's)  who want to get in front of  hundreds of regional business people. Both business to business services and business to consumer types can find it very beneficial to exhibit.

The diversity of businesses exhibiting at a Get Connected event makes it an even better event for everyone involved.
