Leanne English from the Peterlee and Seaham business parks steering group said: “This is a great opportunity for businesses in the area to learn more about the help available to support their growth. Last year’s event was incredibly popular with dozens of exhibitors and attendees so we’d urge people to book their place now to avoid disappointment.”

On arrival delegates will be assigned a group number. Each group will be assigned a starting point with a business support exhibitor. The business support exhibitor will provide the group with a 3 minute targeted pitch, describing their enhanced County Durham business support offer. Every 3 minutes, the group will be alerted to move on to the next exhibitor and so on, until each group has visited all 20+ exhibiting business support organisations. Following this businesses can network with the exhibitors that appeal to them most.
