The Lancashire-based Shout Network, organisers of the Merseyside Business Expo, has announced Openreach as headline sponsor for the event at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre on October 19.
Openreach has identified the Merseyside region as a significant growth area for digital infrastructure.
More than 100 exhibitors have already booked for what is expected to be the largest business expo on Merseyside. Around 2,500 delegates are expected to attend.
Anthony Vincent, Business Development Director for Openreach said, “We’re in the grips of a technological revolution.
“The way business communities operate today means they rely heavily on broadband connectivity.
“This enables innovation through offering new products or services, helping firms attract new customers and ultimately be more competitive.”
