We were pleased to be a main sponsor at the first ever Nottingham Business Expo which took place at the Nottingham Conference Centre on 26th February.

About Nottingham Business Expo

The Expo was organised by Events Company, All about Tourism and was supported by The Nottingham Post.

The first event of its kind, the Expo proved to be an ideal platform in bringing together Nottingham’s thriving business community to network, encourage new business and to promote the city as a leading centre of enterprise.

Todd McQuilkin, Managing Director at Air IT comments:

We’re a great advocate and supporter of Nottingham and where possible want to help promote the city to encourage growth and inward investment. Nottingham has long been crying out for an event of this nature and we were delighted to be one of the main sponsors of this very successful first event.

The day itself was host to over 100 exhibitors and split in to key areas designed for delegates to explore. There was a focus on business hubs and networking with interactive workshops running throughout the day offering a wealth of business advice – from setting up and running a new business to project funding guidance.

The Speaker Zones attracted large crowds with the infamous Nick Leeson as the event’s headline speaker – best known as the man who brought down Barings Bank. He was later followed by digital marketing guru, Susan Hallam; Wayne Hemingway, founder of Red or Dead; and Gareth Davies former chief executive of Imperial Tobacco.

Showcasing our ICT Services

As a main sponsor of the Expo our stand was located in a prime spot in the Central Gallery in the business hub zone.

Together with our communications division MBC, we showcased our range of managed IT, connectivity and telephony solutions as well as demonstrating of our award-winning, feature rich 3CX phone system. Our expert technicians were also on hand, throughout the day, to offer visitors advice and guidance on any ICT issues affecting their business.

We also ran a technology workshop discussing how businesses can best use their ICT to gain competitive advantage – with particular focus on the 3CX phone system and the importance of business grade connectivity.

We’re proud of our Nottingham heritage and were extremely pleased to support it’s first ever Business Expo. The event proved a fantastic success and enabled us to showcase our range of managed IT, telephony and connectivity services to clients old and new.

Our 3CX phone system received an excellent reception from delegates that attended our workshop and stand, many of whom are keen to take things further.

We’re already looking forward to taking part in next year’s event which I’m sure will go from strength to strength and become a firm favourite in the business calendar.
