Whether you are exhibiting or just thinking of visiting The Business Networking Show 2017 it is worth thinking about why you are there. What do you want to sell, promote or communicate and to whom?
So in a few weeks it's The Business Networking Show. There will be hundreds of networkers from all over the UK coming to Wolverhampton for one day only. They will want to grow their business and meet likeminded business owners in the hope of building relationships and ultimately generating more work.
I have been to the past three shows and each one was fantastic. Over the years I have met some great people who have become good friends. I have been given countless referrals and more importantly I have left motivated and fired up. You see running a business is a lonely experience. Being able to go somewhere and be around other people in the same position as you is invaluable - it keeps you sane.
‘Does this Suit me?': So, What Should You Wear at a Business Networking Event?
After walking out of a career in seedy pubs and late-night bars, the idea of self-employment and getting to wear a suit every day, got my adrenaline pumping even more than a tandem skydive.
I set up Neely There with an A4 folder of ideas and two blazers to my name; thinking that this (along with a pair of shiny high heels), was going to define me as a professional.
I was wrong.
Although dressing ‘007 style' fits other business owners to a T, I quickly discovered that it suppressed my personality and creative streak.
Heads up: I'm not going to go on about how you shouldn't wear a 3-piece to business networking events; but I will badger on about finding a style that you're comfortable in.
You know an event is going to be amazing when you have over 500 people already pre-registered to attend, just short of 2 months out until show day.
Oh yes people. The Business Networking Show 2017, #TBNS17 is heading into its 4th year and it is going to be BANGING! I'm excited! We're excited! Can you tell?
This is the LARGEST business networking show in the UK... bringing networkers from all around the UK together under one roof, and the thing is, if you're reading this, YOU can have completely free entry to the event by pre-registering NOW!
