Sterling BIG Breakfast launches Virtual Expo with Sixways & Bartercard
Listed Under: News
On 26th May we were delighted to partner with Sixways Stadium and Bartercard to bring a Virtual Expo to local business.
The day started with our legendary BIG Breakfast which had over 120 people registered to attend. Hosting the event was Jenni Henderson & Neil Davis, MD of Sterling.
Neil was delighted to be on board with the Virtual Expo, adding: “Sterling Networks have been running BIG Breakfast events as part of exhibitions for the past 10 years.
“We have had a long successful relationship with Sixways Stadium, with five of our current networking groups using the venue as our meeting location when we are able to run our face-to-face meetings.
“In fact, our last BIG Breakfast event was in February 2020 at Sixways Stadium where we had over 150 business owners in the room to network before a successful exhibition.
“In a year that has been challenging for many with technology now able to support this type of event, business owners can be positive about networking and taking a stand at an exhibition to help with their lead generation to support them in 2021.”
Along with the BIG Breakfast there was also a good number of stands where business owners were able to exchange Business Cards, arrange meetings, send marketing material and follow up conversations.
£25 of every sale from the stands to the Expo went to the Worcester Warriors Community Foundation and we are looking forward to announcing the total soon and sending the cheque to the charity.
There was some great feedback received during the day such as:
"I'd like to say a great big well done for the expo this morning, it's mind blowing how it all works but it did and so well"
"Thanks for a fantastic event, met some great businesses and leaders - amazing energy and some very productive networking and introductions!!"
"For us it was a real success. We were busy all day! 1-2-1s, emails, people jumping on a our virtual table on our stand, all sorts."
Following the Virtual Expo we are now delighted to announce the return of our first physical BIG Breakfast and Expo on 18th November 2021 at Sixways Stadium. Make sure you put the date in the diary and look out for some further information coming shortly. We already have stands booked from conversations last week and if you want to learn more contact Rosemary and Fiona at Sterling HQ and they will help you start the conversation with us.
