More than 1,000 people and 125 exhibitors attended the fourth Business Showcase event which was staged by Success Doncaster in the Doncaster Dome.
The event was the launchpad for a new service, called Business Doncaster, established by Doncaster Council and other local organisations to provide a single point of contact for all new and existing businesses in the borough, making it easier to access the support they need to grow.
Business Doncaster will also provide advice and support for businesses wanting to move into the area.
Success Doncaster’s Claire Bossward said “The Business Showcase had a real buzz to it once again and proved that despite the current tough economic climate, in Doncaster we have plenty of energetic, forward thinking businesses.
“The event provided an excellent platform to network and meet new business contacts and we hope many left with a wealth of business intelligence, new connections and some excellent new leads.”
Speakers at the event included James Ashford from Bawtry-based Rocket Powered Design, which has been hailed by the British Design Council as one of the most innovative designers in the UK, sport psychologist and performance coach Simon Hartley and experienced business adviser Jean Stewart.
