The East London Expo, now in its fourth year, will see a variety of companies come together under one roof to show off their wares and meet and greet with potential new customers.

This year the event, supported by the Romford Recorder, will take place in the grounds of Barking Rugby Club in Gale Street, near the A13, from 10am to 6pm on Wednesday, October 16.

It will include free business seminars throughout the day with a networking event from 6pm to 8pm.

Mary Clements, of the Barking and Dagenham Chamber of Commerce, said: “It’s an opportunity for businesses to showcase themselves, which in turn helps to showcase the best of east London.”

She explained exhibiting businesses had won large contracts in previous years which they said they “never would have got if they hadn’t been exhibiting”.

Those already filling some of the sought-after spots include media group Archant, publishers of the Recorder and Post newspapers, business east, Garrods of Barking, and Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club.

Jamie Banks, chairman of the Expo’s organising committee, said: “We are expecting to welcome back hundreds of the region’s business owners and managers to the event where they will find some 65 or more stands with leading businesses offering goods and services, and actively seeking trading opportunities.

“East London Expo strives to raise the profile of east London and its strong and growing business base. Everyone with a business, or an interest in doing business, in the area should attend.”
