North East companies are invited to take part in Northumberland’s newest business expo.

Alnwick is to play host to the inaugural Network Northumberland on October 30, at the White Swan, where 22 local firms have already signed up to exhibit.

Six speakers are also lined-up to present 45 minute seminars on a range of subjects from marketing to corporate debt. There will also be two speed networking events on the day, where delegates will get the opportunity to find a perfect match.

StartUP Britain Business Champion for Northumberland, Paul Wakefield, is also taking a 90-minute workshop at the free event, which aims to promote Northumberland as a vibrant business community.

Organiser Ian McAllister said: “We are organising this launch event as the first step to showcasing North Northumberland as a thriving place to do business. “What will follow from this expo will be further exhibitions, a networking group and a panel of industry experts who are going to be consulting to drive the opportunities that Northumberland has to offer.

“We are in the process of putting together our advisory panel and are incredibly pleased to have signed up some of the biggest business names in the region so far. “With this wealth of experience and knowledge, we are sure that the network will be able to provide an invaluable service to businesses both from outside and within the region looking for help, advice and mentoring.”

Those interested in taking part, as an exhibitor, sponsor or delegate can visit for more details.
