MORE than 900 visitors are expected to attend the largest small business expo in the south west at Steam today.

The South West Expo Swindon will see more than 120 exhibitors from around the region and across the country hoping to impress hundreds of potential clients at the show.

A spokesman for the event said: "The South West Expo is one of the largest SME business events and the longest-running within the region.

"Business delegates will have the opportunity to network, be inspired by our phenomenal keynote speakers, informed by our industry-leading workshops and be empowered to take their business to its next level.

"Last year one business owner visited, networked and made a significant connection that resulted in a £50,000 contract."

Speakers including Ed Hollands, John Davies, Paul Waite, Derek Redmond and Emma Jones MBE will discuss their secrets to success.

Seminars about communicating with customers, improving their experience and using CRM programs to boost business growth will aim to educate and inspire attending companies.

The expo will be held in Steam's Great Western Hall from 10am to 3pm.
