Exhibition space still available at Venturefest North West

Venturefest

There is still time for Lancashire-based businesses and organisations to snap up the last few remaining exhibitor spots at Venturefest North West 2018. The North West’s biggest annual business innovation event takes place at Manchester Central on Thursday 13 September, providing a unique networking platform for companies across the region.

One of the more high-profile exhibitors is the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car, which will be making a world land speed record attempt next year. Chris Greenhalgh, head of innovation at GC Business Growth Hub, which is running the event in co-operation with the North West’s other growth hubs, said: “The event is a really great opportunity to showcase new products, raise the profile of your business, and get inspired.

“No matter how big or small your business, finding ways to be innovative is essential. The kind of innovative thinking and collaboration that was needed by the team at Bloodhound will also work wonders for firms of all sizes in other sectors that want to solve problems, whether it is the need to identify new market opportunities, or understanding how those opportunities can then translate into new products and services.

“It’s important to underline that innovation is not just about incredible challenges and doesn’t have to be about creating something new. It can also mean reinventing a product or service for a new market, or changing the way you run your business by creating or adapting processes and systems.” One of the centrepieces of the event is the Innovation Showcase Competition, which has seen over 170 North West firms entering, doubling last year’s total.

Ten finalists will have the chance to pitch their business idea to an audience of potential investors at Venturefest and win packages of support provided by GC Business Growth Hub and its partners.
