Are you looking forward to the Acton Business Expo? We are, of course – an exciting schedule is being lined up (details to come in our May newsletter!), involving all-local businesspeople, with a 100% focus on Acton businesses for the day.
Be sure to connect with us via social media so you can be kept up-to-date to-the-minute on news about the Expo, such as who will be presenting, and at what time, as well as any tips and offers from our 35 exhibitors (click to see the latest list of exhibitors).
The Expo's Twitter handle is @ActonBizExpo (or search for the hashtag #ActonBizExpo), and on Facebook we're at facebook.com/ActonBizExpo.
Also look out for Acton Business Expo flyers and posters going up around town. It would be great if you could help us out by displaying the Expo flyers in your car, shop or workplace; flyers are available from Keith at Post and Packing on Churchfield Road.
Here's what the flyers look like:
If you had planned to take a stand to exhibit and promote your own Acton-based business at the Expo, there are just five stands remaining, so email me right away if you'd like one: firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost is: £120, and to find out what you get for that investment, see the 'Exhibiting?' page on the actonbizexpo.co.uk website.
Perhaps exhibiting is out of your budget, but you can still get involved with the Expo and get a fair bit of promotion by advertising in the Expo Guide. This will be printed and handed out to all exhibitors and visitors on the day. It will also be published online two days before the Expo, and stays there forever. Adverts start from £20; deadline for booking is Sat 30 April. Email me. (Have a look at what the adverts in my Ealing in Business Expo Guide last November looked like.)
As someone who has pre-registered for the Expo, congratulations, you not only will save time on the day, but you are automatically entered into the Expo raffle on the day, with prizes offered by our exhibitors. The raffle draw will take place after the Expo, and winners will be notified by email.
Acton Business Expo is an Ealing Council - Economic Regeneration event, supported by the Mayor of London's High Street Fund.
Enjoy meeting up face to face? Then come along to our monthly Acton Business Meetup; this month it will be held on Monday 25 April, 12-1pm, at The Park Club in East Acton.
