PR firm sets up bumper Gran­ite Expo

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - BUSINESS - BY KEITH FIND­LAY

An an­nual show­case of north- east busi­ness will cel­e­brate its 10th an­niver­sary next year and the or­gan­is­ers are busy mak­ing plans.

Pub­lic re­la­tions firm Gran­ite PR has held the Gran­ite Expo ev­ery year since 2011.

It is one of the north­east’s largest one- day busi­ness events and an­nu­ally brings to­gether or­gan­i­sa­tions re­flect­ing the re­gion’s eco­nomic di­ver­sity, rang­ing from start-ups and small and medium-sized en­ter­prises ( SMEs) to global op­er­a­tors with links to the area.

The lat­est in the series took place at the Dou­bleTree by Hil­ton Aberdeen Tree­tops Ho­tel last week.

Billed as a “giant day of net­work­ing, cross-sell­ing and knowl­edge shar­ing”, and opened by Aberdeen Lord Provost Bar­ney Crock­ett, it was at­tended by hun­dreds of peo­ple.

Gran­ite PR founder and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Brett Jack­son said: “We are in­debted to the many ex­hibitors, sup­port­ers and vis­i­tors who helped make the ninth Gran­ite Expo a re­sound­ing suc­cess.

“Suc­cess­fully gath­er­ing a won­der­ful mix of new busi­nesses and some who have taken part each year since the start clearly demon­strates the ap­petite which ex­ists for this event and we look for­ward to our mile­stone 10th an­niver­sary on Oc­to­ber 29 2020.”

The first expo in 2011 was be­lieved to be the first SME show­case of its kind in the re­gion and at­tracted more than 100 ex­hibitors.
