Piranha revels in another successful LBE!
Posted on: April 2017
Friday 24th March 2017 saw thousands of delegates descend upon the Guild Hall in Preston for the third annual Lancashire Business Expo and Piranha was thrilled to once again be part of this huge success story.
The Lancashire Business Expo is evolving to be one of the most prestigious exhibitions not just in Lancashire but throughout all of the North. This years’ expo boasted over 3,500 delegate registrations and 160 exhibitors showcasing their services and products – ranging from marketing, to chartered accounting, to sailing trips around the Greek Islands and we were proud to be exhibiting amongst them!
Luckily, there was no snow this year and the Piranha expo team were able to speak to people from a wide range of industries about their marketing strategies and struggles, allowing Piranha the opportunity to showcase their full range of services and how these could help businesses overcome their marketing woes.
It wasn’t just the visitors that made the day such a success. We were also joined by other delegates exhibiting alongside us, some of which we had met before (including a number of our clients!) and some we hadn’t. It was great to get the opportunity to learn about their businesses and what they do.
It wasn’t all serious business though and there were lots of fun things to take part in at the expo, including exciting competitions, games and quizzes. Our Graphic Designer Claire particularly enjoyed Anderton Centre’s the Tower of Hanoi challenge. Unfortunately, she missed out on winning by a matter of seconds. Better luck next time!
We also had a giveaway of our own – throughout the day, people were dropping their business cards into our champagne bucket for a chance to win a bottle of champagne. Chloe Greenbank from Rotherham Taylor was drawn as the lucky winner. Well done Chloe, we really hope you enjoy your prize.
Commenting on the expo, Piranha’s Creative Director Peter Bamber said; “Once again the Lancashire Business Expo was a huge success, not just for us but everyone that attended. We were delighted to be involved in this event and hope it continues to run for many more years.”
We would like to say a huge well done to Shout Network who organised the event. The Piranha team are already looking forward to the Lancashire Business Expo 2018!
