Time is running out to put your business in the spotlight at south London’s leading expo.


Only a limited number of exhibition spaces remain with more than 80 enterprises of all sizes having already signed up for the We Mean Business 2013 event at Fairfield Halls in Croydon on Wednesday, November 7, making it bigger and better than ever before.


The inspirational free-to-attend event, now in its fifth year, will allow companies to display their wares and services via exhibition stands while a series of relevant seminars will take place throughout the day.


There will also be speed networking sessions, being sponsored and hosted by Ikea Business. Applying a similar concept to speed dating, by spending four minutes at a time with someone new, speed networking is a proven way of making new contacts, generating leads and showcasing what your business has to offer in the most time-efficient way possible.


It won’t cost much to give your business a competitive advantage with exhibition packages starting from just £125 plus VAT.


This year’s action-packed day is being organised for the first time by Make Business Happen, a not-for-profit company established to support business and enterprise across London and the South East.


Ross Feeney, managing director of Make Business Happen, said: “We are thrilled by the range and diversity of businesses which have already signed up for this exciting exhibition and events programme.


“Anyone who has not already signed up should get involved now because We Mean Business 2013 will provide a unique opportunity to stand out from the crowd as a key player in the community, share ideas, expand your network and generate new leads.”


To appear in the show guide, exhibitors need to have signed up by next Tuesday, October 22, although businesses can still sign up after this date if any spare places remain.


Exhibition stands can be booked by calling Eleanor or Viv on 020 8726 7968 or by email at
