Over 1,000 visitors are set to descend on The Ageas Bowl in October for the free to attend Hampshire Business Show. The Next Generation B2B Expo will take place in Southampton on Thursday 10th October, offering a Hampshire-wide reach to local businesses

Launched by Hampshire entrepreneurs and University of Winchester graduates, Josh Mitchell (24) and Chris Stones (27), the Next Generation B2B Expo promises to reinvent the conversation when it comes to making B2B connections.

With up to 100 exhibitors expected, the event has attracted some of the UK’s leading speakers, including BBC Apprentice winner, Mark Wright, Google Digital Garage Representative and Brad Burton who has been named as the UK’s #1 Motivational Speaker.

During the day, visitors will have a chance to attend focus seminars and listen to keynote speakers as well as networking with other local businesses. Exhibitors will receive vital publicity and promotion as well as the chance to showcase their businesses with professional Shell scheme stands and follow up support.

Visitors to Hampshire’s Next Generation B2B Expo will be invited to download the HBS App which will allow them to connect with and message attendees and arrange meetings within the designated ‘Meet Me Zone’ – all ahead of the day itself.

The event also falls on the same day as World Mental Health Day and to raise awareness, Solent Mind will be the official charity partner of The Hampshire Business Show.

Cllr Peter Baillie who will become Mayor of Southampton on 15th May this year is confirmed to be opening the expo.
