ello dear visitor, we’re so glad you’ve joined us for Ealing in Business – the flagship business-to-business event for our West London borough. The expo was designed to draw Ealing-based businesses together: to connect suppliers with purchasers and to showcase just how much talent exists locally. Trading locally has a number of benefits: lower costs, reduced impact on the environment, easier conversations, a more sustainable community, and more. However, it’s not always easy to know what is available locally. Could the skills or services you need be available just around the corner from where you live or work? Where would you find a local web developer, talented graphic designer, trustworthy virtual assistant, or specialist translator, for example? Along with our wide range of exhibitors and engaging guest speakers, there will be plenty of opportunities to start the business conversation and make those connections yourself. Have a good day of meeting, networking and connecting. @EalingBiz ealinginbusiness

TIME FOR BUSINESS Ealing Council Regeneration department, and by extension the Ealing in Business expo, falls within the portfolio of Council leader, Julian Bell. He explains why 2015 is a good year to launch an expo for boosting local small businesses:

The Council is pleased to be working with partners to create an environment in Ealing where enterprises are supported to set-up and continue to flourish. Ealing has seen an increase in the number of start-ups compared to the West London average and we are keen to see this trend continue by supporting initiatives like the Ealing in Business Expo. Events like these are a vital step in attracting businesses to the area and increasing the number of good jobs available to our residents.

Local businesses network at the Ealing in Business launch event on 22 June
