2019s Wigan Business Expo launches next month with new organiser

The doors at DW stadium open for Wigans largest gathering of local business people on Wednesday 13th November - with a new team at the helm.  

Wigan Council decided not to organise their annual business expo this year and, after a successful 9-year run helping local businesses generate millions of pounds worth of business locally, local family business Launch Events, stepped in to host the event – which is free to attend.    

Being a small family run business, they understood this annual event is a valuable resource for local business owners looking to raise the profile of their brand and build on those all-important relationships.  

Being no strangers to organising a business expo or two thanks to 5 years of running Blackpool Expo, and not wanting the local business community to miss out on this valuable opportunity to network, Launch Events welcomed the opportunity to organise their own. Organised by local businesses, for local businesses and supported by digital sponsors Attain Digital based in Wigan, the new Business Expo Wigan was born. 

Sisters Nichola Howard and Jo Leigh co-founded Launch Events in 2012 to help small businesses find more of the right customers and to help and encourage local businesses to make connections. 

Based in the heart of Atherton, they have been helping businesses find new customers through business to business networking events across the Northwest for the last 7 years. 

Creative Director, Jo Leigh, said: “I joined Nic full time in the company 2 ½ years ago. She had built a fantastic local network but was furiously spinning plates trying to be everything to everyone. Running a business is hard and you can’t do everything yourself.” 

“The beauty of running an Expo so close to home is that we can personally recommend working with our exhibitors, we know them, they’re the people we do business with and the ones we hear about on the grapevine. When you work in small family business like ours, the people you network with become your colleagues and an extension of your business.” 

Founder Nichola Howard said: "Young businesses in particular have very little resource in terms of time and money so taking the opportunity to meet hundreds of like-minded people in one place, in one day is a no-brainer. Your network is your net worth and without a strong business community around you, running a business can be a very lonely place.”
