Days EXPO 2023

Free business advice and support, what’s not to love?

Challenges continue for small business owners post-pandemic whether that’s recruitment issues, reducing energy costs, supply chain interruptions or sourcing finance. The message from the Business Gateway Growth Hub is, you are not alone. Businesses will have the opportunity to meet some of the team in person at the Love Business Expo in February next year.


The Business Gateway provides a fully funded business support service to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Leicestershire. The team will be on Stand B22 in the Burbage Hall offering free and impartial advice in their first large expo attendance since the start of Covid-19.

Business owners and managers will be able to find out about growth opportunities and signposted to the best support available to them shortcutting the often-confusing business support environment that exists across the public and private sector. Advisers will also be able to run through the current sector support and free webinar/workshop programme highlighting relevant topics to visitors that want to enhance their business know-how.

Rachel York, Business Gateway Growth Hub Manager said:

“We are excited to be returning to the Love Business Expo next year. It’s a great opportunity for us to connect and meet with Leicestershire’s vibrant business community - both start-ups and existing companies. We’ll also be showcasing the support on offer to help them not only recover from the pandemic but prosper and grow.”

Love Business takes place on Thursday 17 February at the Holywell Park Conference Centre in Loughborough from 9.30 am to 3.00 pm.

The Business Gateway Growth Hub service is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and delivered by a partnership that includes Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council, East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) and the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership Limited (LLEP).
