Let's Do Business EXPO at Uttoxeter Racecourse

JOIN US at Uttoxeter Racecourse for this exclusive Networking Event which will attract hundreds of delegates from a broad range of business sectors!
This County wide exhibition will see members from all Chambers across Staffordshire come together to network, make new connections, attend our business growth seminars and ultimately do business! With over 1000 delegates at the 2016, 2017 & 2018 exhibitions, this event is not to be missed.
This is the Chamber's flagship event and the aim is to create a platform for anyone who wants to promote their business and network in the local business community. The event also puts Staffordshire on the map as the place to come to do business. Networking is one of the most effective ways to promote and build business, and this event is a must for any business looking to connect and share information with new and existing contacts.
The event is a showcase for the very best local companies to come together and promote their products and services to decision makers from across the region.  Exhibiting will enable you to raise the profile of your company and meet the hundreds of visitors attending Let's Do Business 2019, this year's event is set to be the busiest event yet in terms of networking and the potential to do business.
This year delegates will hear from special guest Rachel Elnaugh. Rachel is the award winning entrepreneur whose first business was the market leading 'experiences' brand Red Letter Days, which she created at the age of 24 and grew from nothing, on a shoestring budget, into a £multi-million turnover household name, which at its height was making £1million profit a year.  In 2000 Red Letter Days was acknowledged by Mintel to be the creator of the new UK experiences industry - by then worth £250million per annum. This inspirational speech is definitely not to be missed!
