The South West Expos are here – book your place now!

By Nick Batten on 18 February, 2021

The team at Great British Expos has decided to move its South West Expos Bristol event online by running a virtual exhibition on Friday 26th February (10 am / 4.30pm).

As the coronavirus situation has developed, the events industry has faced an unprecedented time of risk and uncertainty. Many organisations have postponed or simply cancelled events.

But the Great British Expos have been working for the past eight months on developing a virtual platform that includes a wide range of features to reflect a real exhibition environment, including; virtual stands, interactive keynote stage, a visitor networking lounge, workshop session areas with the ability to live stream or pre-record content/Q&A sessions.

Great British Expos Director Alec Jones-Hall said, “The industry has been hit very hard since March 2020 with Covid-19. The world has changed, and we have had to adapt by putting all of our attention into the virtual world to deliver a world-class virtual exhibition environment so that our exhibitors can stay connected with SMEs and continue to grow their businesses.

“Attending the South West Expo gives SMEs a huge advantage post-COVID-19. Business owners will get the opportunity to network with 1000+ other SMEs who will be attending the virtual business expo and using it as a platform to make new connections, meet new suppliers, receive inspiration and be motivated to take their business forward post-Covid.”

The South West Expo will take place online on the 26th February with a virtual exhibition hall, crafted to emulate real-life event spaces. With over 80 exhibitors showcasing their latest products and services. Delegates can engage on the enhanced interactive stands through the video, live chat, and product demonstrations features.

Visitors can book one-to-one time slots for video conferences with delegates, eliminating the interaction you would expect at a real exhibition.
