Business Innovation South Expo, 12th September 2019, Chilworth

The South’s first large-scale expo is bringing together companies from the science, technology, engineering and business innovation sectors showcasing the latest products and services available across the region.

Two questions to ask yourself:

1. Does your company have access to the right opportunities to showcase your products and services outside of London? A normal B2B expo doesn't seem right, but where do you fit?

2. As a decision maker do you struggle to keep up to speed with the latest products and technology to reduce costs and carbon footprint, to enhance your services, and to protect and future proof your business?

If you can answer yes to either of these questions then join us at the BIS Expo either as an exhibitor or an attendee - because it has been specifically created with you in mind.

To find out more and to book either as an exhibitor or visitor please visit:
