Delegates and Exhibitors are being encouraged to sign up for Rotherham Means Business 2011, the borough’s first business and enterprise event, which will take place on Thursday 10th March 2011 at Magna Science Centre.

The show will combine a major Business to Business and business support exhibition alongside a dedicated Meet the Buyer Zone. The event will also boast an array of inspirational keynote speakers and a full and informative seminar programme, including subjects such as retail, innovation and exporting. 

In addition to attracting established businesses the show will include a major section focused on new and start-up businesses. This is a key growth area for Rotherham as evidenced by our recent success as winner of the 2010 Enterprising Britain Competition.

The show offers budding entrepreneurs, SME’s and established businesses excellent networking and development opportunities, whilst for exhibitors it offers a great opportunity to promote their products and services to a wide business audience, not just from Rotherham but across the South Yorkshire region and even wider.
