SME leaders gather in London for SME XPO

The Evening Standard surveyed ‘000’s of ambitious SME leaders who have already registered for free tickets for their forthcoming SME XPO event in May 2022 and they told us what was frustrating their plans for rapid business growth.

Rather than the challenges of sourcing materials at a time of rising inflation, they told us it was the challenges of everyday business ownership that was keeping them awake at night.

  • Finding the right tactics, tips and tricks to create, scaleable, valuable and consistent sales and marketing funnels
  • Balancing data, bravery and prudence to manage positive cashflow whilst investing to drive growth
  • Bringing effective sustainability, diversity and modern working practices into their business

I’m sure that most ambitious business owners find themselves grappling with these same kinds of business challenges and I ask them - why struggle alone? We’ve designed the SME XPO event to bring SME business leaders and founders together, to match them with expert suppliers, and to answer their most challenges in curated workshops, roundtables and networking sessions taking place live, across the two days.

London Chamber of Commerce and Industry Chief Executive, Richard Burge, will be moderating a session on “Game-changing businesses of the future – how to spot the next big trend” on 26 May. He said: “LCCI is delighted to be supporting the Evening Standard’s SME XPO, not only to help businesses overcome challenges, but to facilitate business to business collaboration, support and networking. SMEs and start-ups are integral to London’s status as a powerhouse of business, industry, trade, investment and global influence that enables prosperity right across the United Kingdom. These small but mighty businesses have a unique flexibility that helps to drive innovation, growth and progress in the UK economy. It is imperative that we support, encourage and champion SMEs to ensure they continue to thrive in our capital city and further afield.”

Join Richard and start-up heavyweights Tej Lalvani, Holly Tucker, Euan Blair, and 100+ inspirational founders and leaders - some you might not have heard of (yet), at SME XPO, 25-26 May 2022, Olympia London.
