The needs of businesses are always changing and Yorkshire Business Market adapts to continue to provide the right opportunities.

Our key theme for 2018 is Growing and Financing Your Business. Understanding this ever-evolving market is vital to business growth.

Here’s what people have to say about the Yorkshire Business Market

I am delighted that the YBM went so well for so many people. I thought it had a strong vibrant feel and the high number of exhibitors and participants made it a very enjoyable place to be. It remains an important part of our private sector business calendar and I was very pleased to be a part of it.

May I also pass my personal thanks to you all at YBM for your very generous hospitality at the luncheon which gave me the chance to meet so many distinguished guests. Cllr. Graham Swift

Cabinet Member, Tourism, Economic Development and Enterprise

YBM is a great annual event where local businesses can re-connect with lots of contacts on one day and under one roof – excellent! Rachel Auty

Head of Marketing, Harrogate Theatre

The Yorkshire Business Market has proven again to be an excellent event to catch up with existing business contacts and to make new connections with other Yorkshire businesses. There was a real buzz this year!

We saw plenty of faces we recognised, thanks to being members of the Harrogate District Chamber, and felt very welcome as exhibitors. We found that visitors and fellow exhibitors were keen to take part in our “guess the number of corks” game and congratulations go to Signarama’s Marc Squires for winning our jeroboam of Rioja on the day!
