Get your visit to the We Mean Business Expo 2015 off to a great start by booking a place at the VIP Networking Breakfast event with Croydon Central MP Gavin Barwell.
More than 100 businesses from across the region will be exhibiting at south London's number one business expo, which takes place at Fairfield Halls in Croydon on October 14, organized by local creative, marketing and events company, White Label Creative.
The exhibitors will cover a whole range of business sectors ranging from tech companies to multi-nationals such as HSBC.
There be a series of free business advice clinics sponsored by The Business Navigator Growth Hub, in association with Prevista and Coast2Capital. While IKEA Business is hosting the ever popular Speed Networking sessions.
The forecourt of Fairfield Halls will be transformed into the showroom for Eco Drive 2015, a motor show designed to showcase the many fuel efficient and 'green' modes of transport.
The day-long event starts with an exclusive breakfast event at which Gavin Barwell, the MP for Croydon Central, and John Allan, national chairman of the Federation of Small Businesses, will be speaking.
Graham Tapley, Croydon branch secretary of the steering group for the Federation of Small Businesses said: "We are supporting We Mean Business 2015 because it is an important showcase for local businesses to showcase themselves to each other and the wider business community.
"Small businesses are the backbone of the nation and provide the success stories of the future. Over 2.5million UK workers are self-employed and it is from these entrepreneurial beginnings that local economies thrive and flourish, providing the bedrock for the local community.
"The FSB is the voice of small businesses and, at a local level, the Croydon branch aims to provide members with regular updates on important local issues and to provide regular opportunities for business networking and educational training and support."
