B2B Expo 2012

Annual networking breakfast kickstarts B2B Expo

Posted on 1 May 2012

A B2B Expo which is being held at the theatre in partnership with the Coventry Telegraph and Federation of Small Businesses, provides a FREE two-day event on 21 and 22 May. The Expo will also include the Belgrade’s fifth annual Business Networking Breakfast on 22 May at 7.30am, followed by the Exhibition from 9am until 2pm.

David Jane, Commercial Director at the Belgrade Theatre, explained: “This annual event has gone from strength to strength since we launched it back in 2008. It’s a great way for businesses to come together in a central location and hear about the exciting work that the theatre is doing, and see how businesses can benefit from a relationship with the theatre. In previous years we have had around 100 people attending from a wide variety of organisations.”

You can book your place on the Networking Breakfast by emailing Graham Aylott at the Belgrade Theatre at or by calling 024 7684 6750.

In addition to networking, attendees will also be able to have an exclusive look around the two day Expo, featuring around 40 stands representing a number of businesses from across the region.

On 22 May there will also be an opportunity to attend a presentation by Martin Yardley, Director of City Development at Coventry City Council, who will be explaining the plans for the future of the City Centre, starting immediately after the networking breakfast at 9am. Over the two days there will also be an opportunity to attend a series of seminars delivered by industry professionals.
