ONE of the North East’s largest one-day business showcase events will return for its ninth year today.

Granite Expo is billed as the area’s largest event of its kind by number of exhibitors and it will take place at Aberdeen’s DoubleTree by Hilton Treetops until 4.30pm. Once again, participating organisations will represent the colourful local business landscape and will range from start-ups and SMEs to global operators with links to the region.

Since its creation by Granite PR, Granite Expo has annually brought together more than 100 businesses from throughout Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and beyond for a giant day of networking, cross-selling, knowledge sharing which is attended by hundreds of visitors.

In recognition of the event’s Hallowe’en date, this year’s theme is: “don’t be scared to grow your business” and it is hoped that visitors and exhibitors will be both educated and inspired by the knowledge sharing opportunity.

In addition to a diverse array of exhibitors and a giant prize draw, the free-to-visit event will also offer business-related seminars, a networking café, a media mall, and a quiet zone for those all-important one-to-one meetings.  The 2019 event will be officially opened by Aberdeen Lord Provost, Barney Crockett.

New for 2019 will be a wellness zone which will feature a range of exhibitors who focus on physical, mental and emotional health.

Commenting on preparations, Granite PR Founder and Managing Director and Granite Expo creator Brett Jackson said: “This annual event exists to create an important business showcase and networking forum.  Our aim is that, in one day, delegates will have access to as many people as they would in months of one-to-one meetings making it a very time-efficient way of networking and growing business contacts.

“We are delighted with the levels of interest already shown in our ninth consecutive Granite Expo, underlining its position on the business calendar as a day not to be missed.”
