Sallyann Betts, digital growth manager at Business Growth Hub
Business Growth Hub, part of The Growth Company, will be teaming up with the Department for International Trade to advise SMEs on both UK and overseas trading at the first eCommerce Show North expo in October.
Visitors to the event will have access to industry experts and guidance about digital technology, cybersecurity and exporting to help them 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 11 and 12 October, and will be the biggest UK gathering of eCommerce professionals outside London.
