Welcome to the Launch Events business networking morning, sponsored by Leigh Business Expo and Leigh Sports Village Stadium.
This launch event is free to attend and offers a chance to come together, meet other local business owners, network and build local relationships.
Open to all businesses from Leigh, Atherton and the surrounding area’s, as far a field as Liverpool, Warrington and Manchester, as we are perfectly situated just off the East Lancashire Road.
According to a recent survey conducted by THOMASNET:
- 72 percent of industrial/B2B buyers “always or generally” prefer to source locally.
- In comparison, just 10.8 percent of respondents “always or generally” prefer to source globally.
- In fact, nearly half of buyers (46.7 percent) actually “rarely or never” prefer to source globally at all.
This year Leigh Business Expo is 5 years old, so there will be a PR photoshoot for current exhibitors and sponsors during the morning.
It’s clear that most buyers prefer to work as close to home as possible.
Which is why events should be an integeral part of your marketing strategy.
