The Yorkshire Business Market has been a leading business expo for 13 years, with many organisations returning every year. This vibrant, community-driven event was created to showcase the array of exceptional SMEs based in Yorkshire. Exhibitors have the opportunity to meet and engage with over 1,000 decision-makers. Detailed below are comments from just four of the organisations who’ve experienced the benefits of exhibiting at YBM. There are only a handful of spaces left, so don’t miss out.
Wild and Co, Chartered Accountants, Harrogate
Digital Plus, visual graphics specialists, Leeds
“Digital Plus first exhibited at the Yorkshire Business Market over 10 years ago and since then, have found it to be a very valuable way to reach out to new customers within a very professionally run and managed exhibition. We have gained numerous clients who are still working with us, for example, the first year we exhibited we gained Martin House Hospice (who exhibited opposite us also) as a new client, as well as Leeds Bradford Airport and Wetherby Racecourse, to name just a few. Every year brings new opportunities to meet new prospects and to also catch up with ‘old acquaintances’ that you meet almost every year. We would encourage anyone looking to gain new customers or indeed just to raise their brand profile to make attending Yorkshire Business Market a No1 priority on their yearly ‘to do’ list.” Ian Thomas – Sector Sales Manager – Digital Plus
Storyteller Marketing, Otley
“I exhibited in 2017 for the very first time. My company was just a year old and I hadn’t taken a stand at any other business exhibition before. I heard about it on the grapevine, being Yorkshire based and all. I took the smallest stand and met some lovely people surrounding me while setting up. The team were on standby to help me with anything I needed and to make sure all was in order with the stand I had booked. I had a constant flurry of people coming by all day and from all kinds of sectors, such as retail to property. I left the day thrilled with 14 enquiries, of which I turned 4 in to clients. All in all, the event was well worth doing, from the social media promotion in the run up to the event, all the way through to the post-event communication to check on how I felt the event went and of course, the new clients I accrued! I think this is a no brainer, great exposure for your brand and a great sales-driver. Tip – get promotional merchandise to make your exhibition area stand out from the rest! Happy Exhibiting.” Olivia Scott, owner
OSR Medical, Ripon
“OSR Medical decided to attend Yorkshire Business Market, as we are a new company, looking to create new business contacts. We have confidence that YBM will be a great place to create contacts, after hearing such great things from previous YBM attendees. We need to make our brand known and are excited to attend. After working with StrayFM over the past few months, we think YBM will be a great success for our business. YBM is a great annual event, where local businesses can connect with lots of contacts on one day and under one roof. So, we are excited to meet other businesses by making our stand fun and interactive, with a great challenging competition. We look forward to seeing you there.” Damien Longley, Director
Whatever your business, it’s clear that exhibiting at the Yorkshire Business Market on 30th April will raise your profile and give you the opportunity to add new clients to your portfolio. The businesses who keep coming back know it’s the ideal environment.
