The Department for International Trade’s Export Hub truck is rolling into town for the Business Growth & Export Show 2018 being held at Shrewsbury Town Football Club on November 23.
This is a free event from the Marches Growth Hub, the one-stop-shop for business support in Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
It’s a great chance to network with other businesses, whether you’re a business trading domestically or internationally, while learning more about the support that’s on offer to you, including how you could access grant funding to grow your business both at home and overseas.
Enjoy a hot buffet lunch before hearing from our after-lunch speaker Jo Fairley, co-founder of Green & Black’s, and her inspiring story of how a home enterprise grew into one of the UK’s most well-known food manufacturing businesses, now a global chocolate brand.
Two types of tickets are available:
– Business Growth & Export Show, Networking Lunch with Jo Fairley
