Grantham businesses will be in the spotlight in July.

Grantham Business Club will host a big event called GBCExpo 2017 where businesses from the town and 
surrounding villages can put themselves centre stage.

The Expo takes place on Thursday, July 13, from 5pm to 9pm at Arena UK in Allington.

Chairman of Grantham Business Club Andrew Hodgson said the event should be a big boost for local business.

Mr Hodgson said: “The event was originally done by the Chamber of Trade and this is our modern version. It is open to every kind of business, from small retails to micro businesses to the larger companies. And it’s not just for business club members – anybody can come along.”

As part of the Expo there will also be demonstrations by businesses and a talk by Paralympic dressage rider and motivational speaker Emma Sheardown about overcoming adversity.

Charities, clubs and societies are also invited to take up a stand at the Expo and South Kesteven District Council will also have a presence at the event, giving the opportunity to meet local councillors.

Members of the public are invited to go along and look around the business stands and meet members of the business community.

Mr Hodgson said: “We are banging the drum for Grantham. I would ask people to come along and see what the town has to offer. I am hoping this will be a big boost for Grantham businesses and the town.”

The Expo will be an opportunity for businesses to let people know exactly what they have to offer.

Mr Hodgson said the event will give businesses the chance to reach a wider audience and allow visitors to discover new services they did not know were offered by the town’s businesses.

There will be food available on the day and there is plenty of car parking space at the arena.

Tickets for a stand at the Expo cost £20 and entry for visitors is £10. To book a stand call Mr Hodgson on 01476 569528 (deadline is July 7). To book visitor tickets go to {https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/grantham-business-club-expo-july-2017-tickets-33555647846?aff=eac2|www.eventbrite.co.uk
