Preview: The Business Show at the Excel

Budding business owners and established entrepreneurs will want to get down to the Excel Exhibition Centre on 13 and 14 May for The Business Show. If you are in the business world – or want to be – and are looking for inspiration, as well as advice on how to grow your business, this two-day event can help. With more than 250 seminars and 170 workshops taking place, you are sure to learn a thing or two. 

Whether you are visiting London for the event or just want to find out more about it, here is a preview of what you can expect.

Angels Den and Tweet Meet

Does that all sound like gobbledegook? The modern world of business is constantly changing, but luckily this exhibition can get you up to speed and even help you find new opportunities for growth. 

Take a look at the Angels Den, for example. Sponsors Angels Den are laying on an event in which plucky business people will have the chance to present their idea to angel investors. The angels – individuals with money to burn, who are interested in investing in a start-up – will listen to pitches from several entrepreneurs. You can send in an application to present your own plan, or just observe others in action.

The online world plays an increasingly large role in contemporary business, so it is important to make full use of the opportunities it provides. The Tweet Meet area is designed to help you do just that by connecting with contacts you have already spoken to online and encouraging attendees to build relationships. Check the Twitter feed at the Tweet Meet to find out the latest conference information.

Exhibitors, keynote speakers and masterclasses

The exhibition will also include various exhibitors, seminars and classes. A diverse range of brands will be exhibiting at the Business Show, including the likes of, who help connect sellers to customers, Zenith Street Limited business consultants and 99designs, a graphic design marketplace.

A host of keynote speakers will also be taking to the stage. Among them will be Brad Burton, one of the country’s top motivational speakers and Charlie Bigham, the man behind Bighams – the upmarket ready meal company whose products have graced the shelves of Sainsbury’s and Waitrose.

In addition to Angels Den and Tweet Meet, other masterclasses will also be presented. Dale Carnegie Training will be there to show you how to energise your team and will take you through the ins-and-outs of acquiring or selling a business.
