LBE Biz Expo – Lifeline for New Business

The massive Leicester Business Expo happening on 27 October 2016 at Tigers Ground, is celebrating its 10th successful year for a very good reason…

It is a vital life-line for all new and start-up companies across Leicestershire. In just one day, in one place, you can find reputable and reliable businesses that can provide you with office machines and equipment, marketing and promotion services like web design, catering and printing, and back-office essentials such as insurance, health and safety advice, legal services and training for your staff.

Here are some of the LBE Exhibitors, divided into those groups, to make it easier for you to find the people you need on the day. Of course, do walk around and speak to everyone, but start with a ‘hit-list’ of the important needs for your new business.
