Hundreds of visitors attended the Wiltshire Business Expo event yesterday at Monkton Park, Chippenham.

The event was made possible by sponsorship from the Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP) and forms part of Wiltshire Council’s exciting Legacy for Wiltshire programme.

The Expo now in its second year provided the opportunity for local businesses to network and promote the products and services that the region has to offer.

Exploiting digital technology to improve business was the theme of the day which welcomed more than 500 visitors and exhibitors with 130 stalls showcasing companies from across Wiltshire.

SWLEP Chair, Barry Dennington, said: “We were delighted to sponsor the Wiltshire Expo. This is an important event in the business calendar, giving local businesses a valuable opportunity to develop and build new relationships, as well as receive important skills training and advice from business experts and inspirational speakers.”

“The aims of the Expo are very much in line with the LEP’s, and that’s why we chose to sponsor the event again this year.”
