“This will be Blackpool’s third dedicated exhibition to showcase the brightest and best that the town’s economy has to offer, and the business community has really got behind us - we’re already getting enquiries for bookings.

“We’re expecting our biggest event yet with more networking, seminars and debates from industry leaders. “People can find out more about the event by visiting the website:”

One of the events will give Fylde coast businesses the chance to accelerate their business development with two speed networking sessions.

They will take place at 10.30am and 12.30pm in the main exhibition area and offer the opportunity to owners to tell up to 20 people about their business and to start valuable relationships with potential suppliers, colleagues and clients.

Registrations will start ten minutes before the start times and places will be offered on a first come, first serve basis.

Among the seminars will be a focus on boosting skills in social media, multi-channel marketing and online lead generation.
