The 6th Hereford Means Business Expo took place on Thursday 9th May 2019 at the Three Counties Hotel
The Expo day started with a delicious breakfast of continental and full English options, where people could chat and network over food and of course fresh coffee!! There was a short presentation given by Sally Gibson from Dawleys giving an insight in to what the company do and who they work with.
With the exhibitors set up and ready to welcome the delegates we opened our doors with our reception staff eagerly waiting with name badges for all and of course goody bags!
We must give special thanks to Dawleys who were our Main Sponsor for the Hereford Expo. We are very grateful to them for their continued support and look forward to working with them again in the future.
We were delighted that our partners Hereford Football Club choose to launch their new shirts for the 2019/20 National League North campaign at the Herefordshire Means Business Expo. With the new home, away and third shirts displaying the logo of their new sponsors Dawleys. We are very proud that after connecting these 2 companies at our networking events they have been able to come together to form this exciting new partnership.
This year we also welcomed back Google Digital Garage who delivered a very informative seminar entitled ‘Get your business visible on Google’ to a packed attentive audience, complimented by seminars from Adam Brooks- ‘3 steps to sales success’, Ian J Preston- ‘How to get more business through your use of LinkedIn’ and Chris Tipping from The DM Lab- Micro moments, search intent and the changing landscape of Google’.
There was also a very popular speed networking event hosted by Ian Davies from Like Radio.
The Exhibition room and seminars were busy with lots of networking and connections being made and information and knowledge being passed between businesses and consumers. With our Media sponsors Like Radio keeping everyone informed of the day’s events on the PA system.
One delegate said:
“I thoroughly enjoyed my first visit to the Herefordshire Means Business Expo, the talks were informative and there was a real buzz in the exhibition room. I feel I have come away with some very promising leads and met some new exciting businesses.”
We were very lucky to have Hereford FC, FSB as our event partners and Like Radio as our media sponsors. A big thank you also to Mark Bushkes from Bushkes Photography.

We send huge thanks to all our partners without them the event may not have been possible.
Hereford Means Business Expo is designed to bring quality businesses together from the local area with exhibitors from every business area. Throughout the day there was plenty of opportunity for networking with many people putting faces to names they had previously connected with online and many companies saying they made new contacts and created new business opportunities.
