Perth Racecourse is gearing up to host a brand-new business event which aims to showcase the colourful local business landscape.
Perth Expo will take place on Thursday, October 24th from 10am until 3.30pm and will provide a showcase for more than 40 businesses operating in and with links to the area.
Although new to Perth, the one-day event – hosted by Aberdeen-based Granite PR – draws on the tried and tested Expo formula which has been running in Aberdeen for the past eight years and was held in Dundee for the first time earlier this year.
Among the highlights on offer at the free-to-visit showcase will be exhibitors from a cross section of businesses; a networking breakfast for exhibitors; a motivational morning session and a giant prize draw. In addition will be five free seminars, including a session entitled: “Brand You” aimed at helping former Thomas Cook employees, and others, who are looking to pick up tips on how to raise their profile in the recruitment market.
Commenting on plans for the inaugural Perth Expo, Granite PR managing director and event creator Brett Jackson said: “Building on the success of Expos in Aberdeen and Dundee, Perth is a natural next step for the series and we are delighted that the inaugural Perth Expo will be our tenth event of this kind.
“Feedback from exhibitors and visitors tells us that the format is ideally suited to creating the opportunity for companies and individuals to come together, do business and hopefully set the scene for fruitful relationships to come.”
He added: “We are delighted at the level of interest shown in Perth Expo so far and we look forward to working with local businesses to maximise this new opportunity for all involved.”
