Build for the Future: East Midlands Exhibition 2021

We are returning for our second event on Thursday 16th September 2021, hosted by Heritage Lincolnshire and Archaeological Project Services, sponsored by Arion & Arion Shop UK and working in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce following the successful event in February 2020. We had over 40 exhibitors from across the industry, and hundreds of delegates on the day.

This annual event is directly marketed and aimed at those within the Construction, Property, Heritage, Sustainability and Trade Industries across the East Midlands.

The main aim is to connect businesses together within these industries, to ensure that they are accessible to businesses of all sizes and capacity.

Prices are below the average price to exhibit at an event such as this and we are hoping to draw in attendees from across the East Midlands area by working with some key partners and influencers in the industry.

 The Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce is a not-for-profit membership organisation supporting around 1,000 local businesses to come together, make connections, share knowledge and grow.

Our members are made up of every size and sector of business, from start-ups to large and established businesses. We operate across professional services, food, drink and hospitality to manufacturing, construction and engineering.

Why are we holding this Exhibition?

With the current economic climate affecting the Construction industry and the uncertainty of Brexit and now post-Covid, we wanted to bring businesses together in the East Midlands area to facilitate collaborative working, using local services and like-minded business people.

Being a small county-wide charity, we have some great assets and a strong, highly qualified and dedicated team. However this doesn’t always reflect in our marketing of the company due to budget constraints. It does not mean that we are unable to do the job, or less skilled, purely that we cannot shout about what we do as loudly as others. How many other businesses are in the same position? We want to put as many businesses as possible on a level playing field, to showcase what their qualities and services are, and how we can all work together.

Roots of Yggdrasil

Do you remember the last time you woke up, as if you slept on a bed made of nails, struggled to get up and sat uncomfortably in the car to go to work? It probably wasn’t that long ago. You didn’t think much of it. Your back hurts, but so does everyone else’s. It is just how life is meant to be and deep down you resigned yourself to just coping with this pain. What if, however, you could wave this painful situation with the right information and just a few minutes a day? How would it feel to retire because you want to, rather than your body forcing you to?

Roots of Yggdrasil does just that. We teach you how to prevent, soothe and eliminate those aches and pains, giving you the strength to do the work you love for longer
