What the Expo is for

T

he main aim of the Ealing Business Expo & Networking Festival is to promote and support the local business community in Ealing. How it works is that we (exhibitors and sponsors) pool funds to hire a prime location – Ealing Town Hall – and stage a Expo director, stimulating and engaging schedule of talks Carlene Bender and presentations to attract visitors to the Expo and thus to our businesses. Contactus magazines Ealing businesses love face-to-face

networking like this, and I happily took on the role of Expo director, organiser and promoter., and made the Expo a part of my own business, Contactus magazines, after working on similar events for Ealing Council over the past two years. This means the Expo is now an independent event and so a real part of the local business community. Let’s work together to make #EalingBizExpo a success in 2017!

Thank you to Expo sponsors
