Granite Expo returns for seventh year

Plans are well underway for the seventh annual Granite Expo event which will take place at Aberdeen’s DoubleTree by Hilton Aberdeen Treetops on Thursday (October 12th).  The free-to-attend event will once again be created by Granite PR and managed by Business Plus Scotland to provide a platform for companies based in and with links to the North East to exhibit, network, knowledge share and cross sell. 

The day regularly attracts a diverse range of more than 100 exhibitors from business organisations representing many sectors which are brought together for the unique, one-day exhibition which ran for the first time in 2011.  In addition will be free seminars and a grand prize draw.

This year’s main sponsor is Barclays and the event will see the introduction of two brand new features, namely an Angus/Dundee Showcase and a Norway Showcase.  Both aim to highlight the vast array of businesses across a myriad of sectors and give opportunity to create or deepen links.

Commenting on plans for 2017, Granite Expo creator and managing director of Granite PR, Brett Jackson added: “From the outset, Granite Expo has attracted an excellent range of businesses from throughout Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire to ensure a vibrant and interesting event each year.  The momentum and anticipation which this event has created makes it a significant date on the local business calendar. 

“We are delighted to add the Angus/Dundee and Norway Showcases to shine a light on domestic and international neighbours – both lie within an hour’s journey time making them ideal places to do business.”
