1284 will make its exhibitor debut on stand B38 at the Love Business Expo 2024.
The 1284 team won’t have to travel far to access the conference centre - the company is based in the nearby Holywell Building.
Director George Oliver said: “We’ve been to the expo as delegates a few times over the years but this is our first time as an exhibitor.
“I enjoyed the East Midlands Chamber’s devolution debate at the 2023 expo, so we chose a stand close to the conference hall to keep up with what’s being said.”
Next year's Love Business Expo takes place in the Holywell Park Conference Centre on February 15.
It is a business-to-business networking exhibition that pulls in exhibitors from across the region. The headline sponsor is the East Midlands Chamber.
