A number of high profile businesses from Exeter and the South West will gather at award-winning Sandy Park this November, for the annual b2b@SandyPark exhibition.

The event, which takes places on Thursday 5 November (10am–5pm), sees Sandy Park team up with the region’s top Premiership Rugby Club the Exeter Chiefs, and has already secured support from Exeter City Council plus local media The Exeter Daily, Radio Exe and the Express and Echo.

B2b@SandyPark promises to be a unique business to business opportunity for companies to not only showcase their products and services, but at the same time meet fresh contacts and develop potential new opportunities.

High profile local and national speakers have already been secured for the day, including Michael Wilkinson, Investment Manager of Crowdcude, as well as Yasmina Siadatan, winner of ‘The Apprentice’ 2009. A full programme of educational and inspirational seminars has also been designed for delegates.

Rosie Denham, Exeter’s Lead Councillor for Economy and Culture, believes the current multi-million pound redevelopment works at the new-look Sandy Park will help to bring bigger and better events to Exeter in the future.

Looking ahead to the event, Cllr Denham said: "The City Council have made major progress to attract new businesses into Exeter and the Heart of Devon area, so we are really excited in the new events that are being developed to help business gain more clients.  We are sure the b2b@sandypark will be high on the list of successes in this area.

"As many people know, Sandy Park has been undergoing a major redevelopment over the summer, so we are happy to help them bring bigger events to the city at what will become one of the premier conference, meetings and event locations in the South West."

There are a variety of Exhibition Stand Packages available to companies or individuals and start from as little as £195 plus VAT.
