In the news: The Basildon Business Expo returns this September with over 70 exhibitors

Essex Chambers of Commerce in association with Basildon Council will deliver this year's Basildon Business Expo at Basildon Sporting Village, following the success of the previous events held in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

This year's Expo will take place Wednesday 28 September, from 10am to 3pm.

Whether a longstanding business owner, or a budding entrepreneur looking to set up a new venture, the Basildon Business Expo offers advice, support and a chance to network.

We look forward to welcoming many exciting businesses and business owners to the Basildon Business Expo, a powerful networking opportunity that will bring like-minded businesses together to share in their success and gain valuable tips and advice.

The day will begin with a networking business breakfast where attendees will hear from Leader of Basildon Council, Councillor Andrew Baggot and Chief Executive of Basildon Council, Scott Logan. This will be followed by the exhibition and time to network with local businesses. There will be many opportunities to win prizes and get involved in competitions at individual stalls throughout the day.

Over 70 exhibitors have booked to attend the event with a range of support services available to help businesses develop, grow and pivot - including government bodies, funding providers, private sector firms and providers of education, training and employment support.

Councillor Anthony Hedley, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth and Business Engagement said "Basildon is a fantastic place to do business and our economy is the largest in Essex. We are proud to support local entrepreneurs and global brands to take their next steps and grow responsibly right here in Basildon."

"We are pleased to be supporting Essex Chambers of Commerce with another successful Basildon Business Expo event.
