We care about your success

You get training worth £2000 from an independent expert on ‘how to generate maximum ROI from events’.

"Leads captured at the event increased massively after attending the free training day, and are continuing to increase due to the ideas provided. The ideas and information I came back with impacted and changed how we approach any future events."

Exhibitor reviews
"It's difficult to measure for our business, but I'd say 5 leads per day gave us ROI, and we came away with 50 leads.
From start to finish it was a great experience but I felt that the additional marketing services that they offered really added value, I can't say there was anything that I disliked, in all honesty. Pre-show organisation from Jo and Cat was exceptional and we felt that during the event; the team were very hands-on with any of our queries. The show exceeded our expectations and we do lots of exhibiting."

"Let's call this what it is - the biggest business event in the North. I had to be here with my company today because theres just so many businesses and so many entrepreneurs that are looking to improve themselves. I've just walked off the stage from probably 3 or 400 hundred people wanting to hear what we're all about. It's a great environment for getting business done, so I love the whole thing to be honest."


"Fantastic couple of days at the Manchester Northern Business Expo. Met some wonderfully driven business people, watched our team shine in a new environment and did something that I never thought I could do, leading a packed workshop with Andy Nelson. I hope we have helped plenty of people get more from LinkedIn and hopefully inspired a few to go do something that scares them as much as presenting today did me."


Unlike many events you'll have the full support of our team - including a dedicated account manager, digital marketing advice and support, guaranteed leads, use of our delegate connection service, promotion on our social media channels, along with press support and an invitation to the exhibitor party at the event.

Will there be decision makers?
Yes. 92% of our visitors say that their primary reason for attending is to find new products or services. This means that you’ll be in the best position to capitalise on these purchase-ready prospects.
How will I benefit?
You’ll meet prospects face-to-face, build lasting relationships with decision makers and keep your brand front of mind.
You'll have the opportunity to collect and convert valuable leads, as leads gathered at exhibitions take less effort to close than those gathered by other methods.*

Exhibitor reviews
"The last couple of days have been a great success for the Dotsquares team at #NBE19! It was great to meet fresh faces and reconnect with old friends - We can’t wait for the next show!"

"I enjoyed speaking at the Northern Business Expo 2019 on Selling in a Digital Age for Business - the audience was a great mix of experts and some novice.
The event and the team left me and the audience buzzing with new ideas and innovative ways to collaborate and grow.
