BBxpo rebranded for 2022

BBxpo has a new name for 2022 – BBxpo!

Originally named Bideford Business Expo, the event, which fast became known as BBxpo, has now been rebranded as Business Boost Expo – Bideford to match complementary activities, including the Business Boost startup and business development magazine supplement featured in Business Action magazine, all aimed at supporting North Devon businesses.

This will be the third BBxpo exhibition, following the 2018 and 2019 events and cancellation of the 2020 and 2021 events in the pandemic.

New BBxpo website launched

After an absence of two years BBxpo returns to Bideford in 2022 – and now with its own dedicated website.

The new site features information about this year’s show and reminders of previous events, plus an online booking form for exhibitors – book your exhibition space now.

A comprehensive list of BBxpo exhibitors will be added during the coming months as well as details of workshops, talks and the late- lunch networking buffet, so remember to check the site regularly.
