More than 1,500 Sheffield City Region organisations will come together to do business at a popular networking exhibition next week.

SheffEX is returning to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre on Monday December 1 featuring an exhibition zone, networking arena, workshop areas and a designated theatre for speeches and lectures.

The one-day business forum will attract organisations from the Sheffield City Region and the wider Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire areas to SheffEX to make new contacts, opportunities and deals.

Speakers include Jill Thomas of Future of Life Wealth Management, who will be discussing the Big Investment Project (BIP), Paul Scriven, of Apps2Connect, and HR Media’s Kirstie Kinrade, who will be hosting a Meet the Media session with a panel of leading journalists from BBC Radio Sheffield, The Star and Sheffield Live.

Tony Carroll, one of the organisers, said: “SheffEX was buzzing with organisations making deals and doing business when we put on the inaugural event this summer. We’re expecting SheffEX2 to be just as successful.

“It has been organised by Sheffield business for Sheffield business. The cost of exhibiting has been kept low so that any type and size of company or organisation can have the opportunity to show themselves off to the Sheffield City Region.”

Six good causes have been chosen to take a free stand at the event including Disability Sheffield.

New for SheffEX2 is an after-show party at The Holiday Inn Royal Victoria from 5.30pm onwards.

SheffEX launched in June 2014 and there are plan to run the event twice a year.
