Organisers of the Midlands Business Network Expo will host the first live exhibition post-Covid at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 2 October.
The Midlands Business Network worked closely with the venue to give companies the confidence to attend face-to-face business events again.
Julie de Thierry, business director of the Midland Business Network Expo, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on our economy. More than ever, businesses need to kick-start their marketing following this extremely difficult period.
“With new safety guidelines in place, the event offers businesses a safe and secure environment to network.”
The Midlands Business Network Expo is working with the Ricoh and adhering strictly to the All Secure Standard, staggering admission in the event, cleaning before, during and after the event, introducing a one-way system for visitors, enforcing social distancing, using an electronic registration system to allow for tracking and tracing to take place, and placing hand sanitising stations around the venue.
