The Ultimate Business Show

June 17, 2020

P&J Live

Now in its fifth year, The Ultimate Business Show has been a sell-out since its inception bringing together organisations of all sizes from every sector.

The show sees more than 80 exhibitors and upwards of 800 delegates each year, helping to keep our regional economy buoyant. It offers an excellent platform to raise your company’s profile, generate business to business sales leads as well as ample opportunity to connect with business leaders and prospects.

Building on previous success, the one-day event will kick off with the Chamber’s Business Breakfast and throughout the day there will be a series of free seminars (TUBSTalks) taking place covering a range of topics to support the growth and development of your business.

The Ultimate Business Show is the must-attend one-day business to business event in the North-east calendar.
