The Premier B2B Tradeshow for Sussex


10:00am, 28th September, 2023

The Sussex Business Show

Our tradeshow is uniquely positioned to provide your business with a fantastic new and exciting platform to market your organisation and brand in Sussex. Our business show is an informative and invaluable event for you, a true insight into the power of networking and marketing, yet different in the way they encourage a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Network Xpress which hosts the Sussex Business Show is the perfect way to market your brand, face to face with business people from across the Sussex county.

10:00am, 28th September, 2023

Business Event with a Twist

We believe, by introducing a fun element, people will get more out of our event and therefore more for their business. Elements of serious networking combine effortlessly with a fun atmosphere in an effort to make marketing not only easier but more enjoyable too. We have found that too many networking gatherings are formulaic and rigid which doesn’t always allow entrepreneurs to interact as much as they would like. So, we organise themed tradeshows, be it golf, tennis, football or a casino to involve all businesses at the event.

Partnering Network Xpress

Running an event involves a lot of prior planning to ensure you get it right on the day. This is no truer than with exhibitions. There’s a whole host of factors to cover, including (but not limited to): keynote and workshop speakers, choice of venue, catering provisions, event dates & exhibition literature. And what’s more is the organiser also have to put the time into source the right kind of quality exhibitors for the events, as well as then promote it to potential visitors, all months in advance of the exhibition, conference or business show.

Hybrid B2B Events Sussex
