Business Growth Hub teams up with Department for International Trade at new expo

Business Growth Hub, part of The Growth Company, will be taking centre stage at the first eCommerce Show North expo on the 11-12th October.

As one of the sponsors of the show at Event City, Manchester’s specialist business support service will be teaming up with the Department for International Trade to advise SMEs on both UK and overseas trading.

Visitors will have access to industry experts and get invaluable guidance about embracing digital technology, tackling cybersecurity and understanding GDPR and the complexities of exporting, in order to grow their eCommerce businesses on a global scale.

The UK eCommerce market is predicted to double to £645bn by 2018, with 77% of the UK population currently having made a purchase online.

The eCommerce Show North will embrace this phenomenon, showcasing the latest innovations in the industry and hosting seminars, specialist speakers, networking sessions, workshops and demos.

Sallyann Betts, Digital Growth Manager at Business Growth Hub, said: “We’re delighted to be playing a part in this major new show which promises to inform, educate and inspire.

“We’ll be there on Stand 68 to advise and encourage businesses who want to refine their eCommerce offering beyond the basics and are ready to expand their markets beyond the UK.

“eCommerce is a rapidly growing sector – more than 50% of online businesses in Manchester export to four or more continents, which is an amazing figure. We’re keen to help even more businesses enjoy that sort of success by meeting them at the show and then via our fully-funded advice, training and events.”

The eCommerce Show North takes place at Event City, next to the Trafford Centre on October 11th and 12th, and will be the biggest UK gathering of eCommerce professionals outside London.
