Where Yorkshire businesses interact, innovate and grow


YBM is made possible by the support of our Partners

Hornbeam Park Developments Limited is delighted to be exhibiting at this year’s Yorkshire Business Market where we will be showcasing The Matrix, an impressive new development located at the heart of Hornbeam Park on the former college site, alongside Gardner House a high specification grade 1 office building located on the edge of the Park with the most spectacular views across the Crimple Valley. Both sites are under construction / refurbishment at the moment, with completion due in the second half of 2018. Be inspired at Hornbeam Park,  Harrogate’s premier business location;  the number 1 choice for all your property solutions

At CNG we believe that energy isn’t enough; people want power too. That’s why our brand is focussed on powering up our customers, partners, and community. That’s why we live by seven “crazy” ideas; like taking away the pain, and being bigger than profit.

And it’s thanks to this ethos that we’ve grown considerably over the years, and are now proud to be the largest independent shipper of gas in the UK, as well as one of the fastest growing privately-owned companies. So when you think about it, maybe our seven ideas aren’t that crazy after all.

Stray FM is immensely proud to be media partners of the Yorkshire Business Market. It is really fantastic to see so many local businesses involved in this year’s YBM and we are delighted that we can help support and promote this event to the masses.

Stray FM is also a local business and we love working with other local businesses which is why we believe this is one of the most important events in our calendar. We value the opportunity to meet existing clients, partners and suppliers as well as new ones all in the same day, nothing replaces doing business face to face with real people.

Our team will be there on the day in full force broadcasting from our pop-up studios so come and find us as you may be featured in our special YBM “Business Hub” broadcast.

Listen to “The Business Hub” every Monday night 7pm to 8pm for the latest local business news and expert advice.

We don’t only provide fantastic membership benefits – FSB is also the UK’s leading business campaigner, focused on delivering change which supports smaller businesses to grow and succeed. Our lobbying arm starts with the work of our Regional teams and members and the team in Westminster which together focus on Local, UK and English policy issues. Further to this, our expert teams in Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast work with governments, elected members and decision-makers in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This year the FSB are sponsoring the recording of promotional videos.  You will be videoed giving a 30 second elevator pitch, which will be edited with your company logo.  The cost is a very reasonable £20, reduced to £15, if you are a FSB member.   Spaces are very limited.
