Countdown to the Business Showcase South West

By Anita Jaynes on 24 September, 2016

Now the largest free business event in the South West, Business Showcase South West (BSSW) returns for its fourth annual exhibition at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol this October.

On Wednesday October 5 from 10:30am-4:30pm, up to 200 businesses will be exhibiting to thousands of delegates at what has become the region’s not-to-be-missed business event, celebrating the best in innovation, creativity and enterprise.

Free seminars, workshops, keynotes and networking opportunities make up the day. Past events have seen keynote’s delivered by big names in business, such as Baroness Brady and Levi Roots. This year it is the current winner of the hit BBC series The Apprentice – Joseph Valence – who’ll be offering his secrets for success live on stage.

This year’s event sponsors include Nattiest & Worldpay, Rybrook Specialist Cars.

BSSW was founded by Bristol-based entrepreneur, charity auctioneer and broadcaster Jamie Breese who has presented on TV for all the major networks including, BBC, ITV, Sky and The Discovery Channel. Jamie has also operated business events in the region for the last nine years, including helping to run the Lord Mayor of Bristol’s Charity Gala Dinner.

Jamie said: “We are all set for the next Showcase at Ashton Gate this October. It’s free to attend and open to all. Delegates can connect with so many great businesses, from global brands to SMEs. It’s my aim for the Showcase to be a business-packed experience that delegates will feel compelled to stay at all day long.

“Our delegates enjoy multiple and useful seminars and inspiring keynotes which help solve the problems and challenges in today’s business world. I expect delegates from across the region, who will see this as THE stay-all-day, must-go-to, business-driven networking mega-fest!

“For this event, we are laying on a whole fleet of free bus shuttles from our partner First, making it as easy as possible for delegates to get to us.

“2016 has been a huge year for us and 2017 is set to be even bigger, with Showcase expansion plans in the pipeline- watch this space!”
