14th October 2015 – Wyre Expo – Marine Hall - Bringing Fylde Coast Businesses Together.

  • The Wyre Expo was the first Business to Business Exhibition of its kind to be held in Wyre. Primarily aimed at businesses based in Wyre, but was expanded to include businesses who resided from neighbouring boroughs to encourage Fylde Coast business relationships, and showcase the diversity of businesses here on the coast. The businesses showcased their products and services, creating networking, partnership and business opportunities for everyone who was involved.

The event took place at Marine Hall where businesses flocked to the hall to set up their stands for the day ahead. Some local Businesses included YMCASpa on the Breck, Links, Signs and Graphics, The New Penny Grill, Confidence Coffee House, Astute Motoring and many more.

We also had two speakers presenting at the event: Anne Williamson – Lucrative Marketing, and Kevin Donnelly - XP Web Services.

Anne teaches companies how to increase sales and more importantly profit. She does this by showing companies how to develop long lasting meaningful relationships with their customers, rather than treating them like they are a one night stand. Here is her presentation.

Kevin presented about - Is Google really punishing non-mobile friendly sites? Is new, original content really the way forward? What are Google’s latest updates, and how do they affect your website? If a year of mixed messages have left you in a spin, Kevin Donnelly, SEO specialist, will give you – and your online marketing – clarity. Find his presentation HERE.
