LEIGH family business CarLease UK has been announced as the main sponsor at the town’s biggest business networking event.
The Leigh Business Expo, which is run by Launch Events NW, will be held for the sixth year this Spring in the new setting of Leigh Leisure Centre on Wednesday, May 22, between 10am and 3pm. The free event gives more than 50 entrepreneurs and businesses in the area the chance to showcase their work and develop contacts.
Rob King, Director of CarLease UK, said: “We are proud to support Leigh Business Expo as the main sponsor for 2019, in what will be our third year as an exhibitor. Working with, and for, local businesses is a crucial part of our ethos and identity as a family business.
“As an online business, which works with individuals and companies nationwide, it would be remiss of us to forget that our business was forged on local initiative and relationship-based custom. Businesses can sometimes forget that some of the best opportunities are literally on the doorstep, a fact which we have come to realise in recent years.
“Over the course of the last three years we have worked hard to rekindle some long-standing relationships with our North-West customers and showcase our ability as one of the UK's leading small contract hire and leasing brokers.
“While we are all continually being reminded that 2019 is set to be a challenging year socially, economically and politically, by focusing on the remarkable abilities of our local people and businesses we can illustrate why we should be confident about and proud of our local economy.
“We would encourage all business, regardless of size, to attend this year's event and see for themselves the impressive selection of talent from our area.”
The expo is open to all businesses from Leigh, Wigan and the surrounding areas as far afield as Liverpool, Warrington and Manchester, as it is situated on the East Lancashire Road, and there are still exhibitor slots available.
Nichola Howard, from Leigh, who runs the event, said: “We are excited to have a great Leigh business on board as the main sponsor. Launch Events NW is passionate about helping local businesses gain the benefit of building new relationships, connecting with local suppliers and raising awareness of their brand. Business expos are a perfect place to do this – and we look forward to seeing the Leigh business community join us.”
