Jan McDermott & Co exhibition success

24-Sep-2014

Jan McDermott & Co recently took part in their first business-to-business exhibition and are delighted with the response.

The Birkenhead-based accountancy firm decided to try a new tactic in meeting potential clients. They found that an exhibition gave them a good platform for meeting the small and medium businesses that are their core client base.

The company, in its ninth year of trading, is no stranger to Merseyside business events with employees often seen at networking events in the region and also taking the stage to speak at small business seminars.

However, this was a first for the six-strong team at Jan McDermott & Co. It was also a first for the Liverpool Business Exhibition (LVBizExpo), following its success in Manchester over previous years. 

The inaugural LVBizExpo was held at the Crowne Plaza in Liverpool on 9th September with over 60 exhibitors placing themselves in the heart of the Liverpool and Northwest business community. In addition to the exhibition there were speed networking sessions and workshops on: achieving success; delegation; and marketing on a shoestring, giving the visitors plenty to get involved with.

Accountancy firm Founder and Managing Director Jan McDermott said of the exhibition: “There was a great buzz on the day and it was really interesting and helpful to hear directly from a number of business owners the issues they face in growing their businesses. It helps us tailor our offering to be an integral part of their growth plans. We are currently following up on all the contacts we made on the day and are already looking forward to taking part in future exhibitions in the region.”

LVBizExpo founder Grant Erskine from Grant Erskine Architects Limited said: “I am truly impressed by the energy and support that Merseyside and the Northwest business community has for its fellow business people. Liverpool is a great city to do business in because its business people have a great entrepreneurial attitude. That’s why I knew we could make this event a success in this city – it’s the business people that are hungry for it”.
