Yorkshire Business Market a sell-out

Organisers of the 12th Yorkshire Business Market say it's set to be the most successful yet.

Demand for stands has far outstripped the last few years, with more than 110 exhibitors now set to fill Pavilions of Harrogate on Monday.

Meanwhile, there's plenty of interest in the programme, with a series of seminars and networking events running throughout the day.

Brian Dunsby, who leads the organising team, said: "Interest in Yorkshire Business Market has never been higher and we’re looking forward to a very busy, successful day for everyone involved.

"We have found space for as many businesses as possible to exhibit, but we are now sold out for
exhibitors. However, there’s still time for business visitors to register to join us on the day, or they can just register on arrival by presenting two business cards - and of course, attendance is free.

"We have once again attracted some leading Yorkshire figures to join us on the day, so our visitors and exhibitors should look out for them as they tour the aisles. The day will get off to a great start with the opening ceremony at 10am, this year being performed by Sir Gary Verity."

The seminar programme includes local success stories from fast-growing business CNG Ltd and Ruth Whiteley who appeared on popular BBC show The Apprentice.

Meanwhile, a new tourism area has been formed, with a collection of leading organisations including Welcome to Yorkshire, Visit Harrogate, Harrogate at Christmas, HIC Yorkshire, Harrogate in Bloom, and the Gilbert and Sullivan Festival.

The Best of Harrogate is also bringing along some of its members to highlight the strength of independent businesses in the town.

Visitors can register to attend at www.yorkshirebusinessmarket.org/visit2016.php, by e-mailing
info@yorkshirebusinessmarket.org or just turning up on the day with two business cards.
