Small businesses are gearing up for one of the biggest showcasing events in the county calendar, the 2017 Lincolnshire Show.
The annual show, which takes place at the Lincolnshire Showground between June 21 and 22, provides a welcome boost in trade with the chance for local businesses to flaunt their wares to over 60,000 potential new customers.
With around 600 trade stalls, the show also represents a highly anticipated networking opportunity.
Show organisers, the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society, are expecting a high turnout again this year.
The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) is inviting company’s to find out more about its ‘FSB Experts in Business Marketplace’, a marquee that provides an opportunity for member businesses to test out show appearance before deciding on whether to have a stand of their own in future years.
The marketplace has 23 low cost trade stands that can be booked by member businesses with prices starting at just £180.00 plus VAT. This covers both show days with set up on the Tuesday.
To enquire further just call 01522 569612.
Local business ‘DBS Internet Marketing’ of Navenby has already taken up a trade stand. General Manager Julie Priestley said: “Our business is keen to grow by taking on more customers and we see attendance at Lincolnshire Show as a great way to meet potential new clients. It also enables us to gain enhanced benefit from our FSB Membership by having a low cost trade stand in their Marketplace marquee.”
Stand holders are also entered into a free competition: the ‘Doug Balderson Agriculture Entrepreneur Award for Innovation’.
