The business support exhibitor will provide the group with a 2 minute targeted pitch, describing their enhanced County Durham business support offer. Every 2 minutes, the group will be alerted to move on to the next exhibitor and so on, until each group has visited all 30+ exhibiting business support organisations. Following this businesses can network with the exhibitors that appeal to them most.
