Barking MP to open East London EXPO

Barking MP Margaret Hodge is due to open the third annual East London EXPO today (Wednesday).

Up to 100 businesses from across the east London corridor are to showcase their expertise at the Dagenham event from 10am to 6pm.

The MP is due to attend at around 10.30am so she can officially launch the EXPO, at the M&B Club grounds of Sanofi-Aventis, in Rainham Road, South Dagenham.

It will be followed by a networking evening until 8pm.

The event is supported by media partners and exhibitor Archant, publishers of the Post.

Jamie Banks, chairman of the organising committee, said: “We are expecting to welcome back hundreds of the region’s business owners and managers to the event, where they will find leading businesses offering goods and services, and actively seeking trading opportunities.

“East London EXPO strives to raise the profile of East London and its strong and growing business base. Everyone in the area who has a business, or an interest in doing business, should attend.”
