I turned a dull, rainy Thursday on 14 May, into a super fun productive day by visiting The Business Show in Excel London, Europe’s biggest business event of 2015! I was so excited not only to meet all the exhibitors, attend seminars and workshops but also to collect some freebies too!
The event consisted of over 350 exhibitors including Ali Baba – Manufacturers, Suppliers, Exporters & Importers from the world’s largest online B2B marketplace and Scoot – the UK Business Finder. There was over 250 seminars and 140 master classes providing businesses all the information they needed to become successful. Topics covered included digital marketing, using social media to boost your business, selling online and SEO.
The Business Show had gathered all the business minds under the roof of Excel London ensuring our entrepreneur business dreams come true! It was a business heaven for all entrepreneurs and definitely a show not to be missed!
The line-up of guest speakers included some very influential names including Piers Linney, CEO of Outsourcery, also on the popular BBC program, Dragons Den and Neil Clough from The Apprentice, Dan Spicer from Hootsuite. Also there were key representatives from the leading brands including Facebook, and Saatchi & Saatchi.
It was informal and fun networking at The Business Show, through Speed Networking, Business Connections Wall, Facetime, Your Business Community, Angels Den, Tweet Meet and 4Networking 1-2-1 Arena.
Most of the exhibitors at The Business Show were all Technology and IT based so this was right down my street. There were loads of cool funky businesses and I was lucky enough to grab a quick pose with them as a souvenir photo for Twitter and my blog.
One of my favourite exhibitors and what I thought was super cool had to be 3D printing! Yes… 3D printing! Bobble Shop is a funky company which produces amazing 3D figurines, I was lucky to witness and see the printer of how the technology worked. Also even more lucky to have a quick pose with the figurines in my hand.

Another company specialising in 3D printing, currently the printer is printing the Eiffel Tower! I was told it can also print using chocolate! How cool is that?
It was a pleasure meeting Karen Williamson, Director of New Horizons Gifts, Specialists in Promotional Merchandise. I love my pink torch keyring its fabulous! Check out their amazing range of promotional merchandise, you will be spoilt for choice!

Nadia it was a pleasure meeting you at The Business Show, I loved playing the lucky dip at the sea side, glad I chose the crab and have a chance of winning a holiday in Bournemouth!
One of my other favourite stands was this eye catching poster #WeKissAllTheFrogs
My favourite freebie had to be the Ali Baba bag, its fluorescent orange and was the catch of the day as was stopped by numerous visitors all looking for the stand to get an Ali Baba bag!
The Business Show 2015, Excel London was an awesome event and highly recommended for anyone in business or starting a business. It was a business heaven for entrepreneurs. I am definitely looking forward to next year and meeting more amazing businesses.
