AN annual highlight on the local business networking calendar is set to mark its milestone tenth anniversary with an all-new format.
Granite Expo is to be held online and will include more than 30 online exhibitors, the one-day event will also feature five business seminars focusing on law, finance, business funding, health and digital.
Held in association with legal firm Stronach’s, it will bring the forum to a whole new digital audience.
Commenting on the plans Brett Jackson, event creator and Granite City PR managing director, said: “In ten years, we have traded through all sorts of economic conditions during which the oil barrel price has been anything between $16 and $145 – and this year has added to the mix untold difficulties for every business.
“The enduring appeal of Granite Expo is very much down to the diverse range of businesses and individuals who support it each year.
“Some of them have been returning frequently since the beginning and others are joining us for the first time to see what it’s all about, so it was very important that we got creative in reciprocating that support by finding a way to deliver Granite Expo in this unprecedented year.”
Ewan Neilson, Stronachs LLP partner, said: “Stronachs LLP are delighted to be legal sponsor to the 10th Granite Expo. It offers a unique opportunity for SMEs, entrepreneurs, intermediaries and anyone else connected to the North East business community to connect to other like- minded people.”
The event takes place on November 26.
