Posted: 01.03.2022

The eagerly awaited return of the North Lancs Expo is here! Showcasing the best of business across North Lancashire, the high profile Expo is back, for one day only in a brand new location!

Celebrating 125 years of supporting businesses across North Lancashire in 2022, Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce will host the North Lancs Expo at Lancaster & Morecambe College on Friday 30 September.

The North Lancashire Business Expo is a unique event which sees businesses and visitors collide on a platform to showcase our amazing North Lancashire.  A business showcase which brings stakeholders in the region together for a day of discovery and connection, with exhibitors, stands and talks. 

North Lancashire is an amazing place. It has unique locations, warm, friendly people and a rich, growing business community. We believe that it deserves a gateway to allow people and organisations to discover all of that in one place… to get a taste of why North Lancashire is important. Now and in the future.

Vicky Lofthouse, Chief Executive Officer of Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce, said:

“The Chamber team and I are very excited that the Expo is coming back this year after a two year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we are thrilled to be working with the team at Lancaster & Morecambe College.  Not only is it the perfect location due to its central location within the district, but its links to skills, education and training fits perfectly into the ethos of the Expo.”

“We are delighted to be harnessing the expertise of Lancashire Business View and Workshop Media who are on board as Media Partners.”
