East London Expo to boost business

SMALL companies will be taught how to attract web users and land contracts with multi-million pound organisations.

Barking and Dagenham Chamber of Commerce will deliver the “web marketing” and “contracting” seminars during its first ever business fair in Dagenham on October 19.

Leading business players worth millions of pounds will attend the East London Expo helping exhibitors raise their profile, network and boost business opportunities.

Vicarage Field Shopping Centre in Barking, Dagenham & Redbridge FC and Barking and Dagenham Council are among 75 organisations already booked to attend the fair sponsored by the POST.

Seminars will include “inbound marketing” to boost a company’s profile online, expert tips to secure contracts with the public sector and large private companies and general marketing and finance. They will be free for exhibitors.

Expo organiser Jamie Banks said: “Attending is a great way to tell other businesses that you exist.

“It will provide an excellent opportunity for every business in the area to meet each other and showcase their goods and services in a relaxed environment.”
