A business exhibition which debuted in Sheffield in June is set to return later this year, with organisers expecting the event to sell out again.

SheffEX brought together more than 1,500 people from organisations across the Sheffield city region and the wider Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire areas.

Exhibitors included Santander, Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Westfield Health.

Following the success of the June event, SheffEX will now return to Ponds Forge International Sports Centre, Sheffield, on December 1.

Tony Carroll, one of the event’s organisers, said: “We were overwhelmed by the success and positive feedback of the first ever SheffEX.

“There was an incredible buzz around the venue last time around with people making contacts, doing deals and forming new business partnerships.

“Nine out of 10 people who attended June’s event said they would like to see another SheffEX so I’m delighted to announce that it will be returning again this year.

“For an event to sell-out in its first year is incredible, but following on from the success of its predecessor, we expect SheffEX 2 to sell-out as well.”

Plans are now in place for SheffEX, which is free to enter, to run every June and December in the Sheffield City Region.
