This is a great show for all of those interested in either setting up in business or making their existing business bigger and better. It’s an opportunity to meet people and exchange ideas with with people you would have never met otherwise. The show has a friendly atmosphere, has some great talks going on and a real buzz!

The main Expo was well organised, with a varied and interesting mix of people who were promoting their businesses in a great space for networking and starting those important “get to know each other” discussions. Overall, a fantastic event, for which I have already signed up to attend the next event!

I attended The Art of Entrepreneurship as an exhibitor in November at the Doubletree Hilton at MK Stadium. I haven’t attended many exhibitions as an exhibitor but decided to book a stand for TAOE as I hadn’t done one for so long due to Covid and I thought it would be a great opportunity to gain more visibility in Milton Keynes. I was right, it was a really enjoyable day and I made lots of useful contacts. Thank you Angela and the team for an excellent expo.

The first event held by McCall Group ticked all the boxes, great venue, plenty of parking and given all the challenges with the timing a good turnout of delegates from outside the wonderful networking groups across Milton Keynes. It is a welcome addition to the established expos for local businesses in the region. I look forward to seeing McCall Group continue to innovate in this space.

The November event was really good and I made a lot of interesting contacts and picked up a few new customers, so I was keen when the 2023 event date was announced to get my stand booked as soon as possible.

I am looking forward to exhibiting at the Business Expo again this year! Considering everything that happened before the 2022 event that was completely out of Angela's control (the Queen's funeral on the day of the original show, it then being rescheduled and it being announced that England were playing their first game of the world cup on that day and then the events photographer ending up in hospital days before the show!) It was a great event and I met and connected with a lot of interesting new individuals as well as reconnecting with people I know. If Angela can host an expo that good after everything that happened I know this year will be unbeatable!
