Connecting, Collaborating and Creating Opportunities

At BusinessLodge, we understand the power of connections. That’s why we feel honoured to have exhibited at Lancashire’s most celebrated B2B exhibition, Lancashire Business Exhibition 2024.

Hosted by Shout Expo, the event took place at a new iconic venue, The Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre in Preston. It brought together businesses from all across Lancashire to connect and explore opportunities. From startups to established companies, the atmosphere was buzzing with energy.

For us at BusinessLodge, exhibiting at this event wasn’t just about showcasing what BusinessLodge has to offer—it was about connecting with like-minded professionals, strengthening our ties with local businesses, and sharing our vision for collaborative growth.

Events like this remind us of the importance of community in business. Building strong relationships with fellow businesses is key to support and growth. We want to thank everyone who stopped by our stand and showed interest in our work. Your curiosity and engagement inspire us to keep growing.

Looking forward, BusinessLodge is dedicated to offering exceptional networking opportunities for businesses in Lancashire and beyond. Whether it’s through our collaborative workspaces or curated events, our goal is to support your connections and success.

Why Networking Matters

Networking isn’t just about exchanging business cards—it’s a fundamental aspect of business growth and success. In a competitive landscape, establishing and nurturing relationships is essential for gaining trust, credibility and access to valuable resources.

Networking provides a platform to learn from others, stay informed about industry trends and uncover new opportunities. By investing in networking, you position yourself as a trusted leader in your field and open doors to collaborations that can drive innovation and growth.

Consider these statistics:

  • Over 40% of in-person meetings in B2B sales lead to acquiring new customers.
  • 80% of B2B customers base their decisions on the quality of relationships with businesses.
  • Business executives estimate they would lose 28% of their business if they ceased networking.


Reflecting on our time at the exhibition, we’re grateful for the opportunity to connect and collaborate, thanks to Shout Network. To all the attendees who made the Lancashire Business Exhibition 2024 a success, thank you.
