Digital Business Expo To Take Place At The Bridge In Dumfries Next Month

Business Gateway, in association with Dumfries and Galloway Council, are hosting a ‘Digital Difference Day’ Business expo as part of Scottish Business Week.

The Digital Difference Day will host a number of keynote speakers including Karen Riddick of Second Nature Online, an ecommerce store, Andy Todman from 5G Connect and Amy Muirhead from David Allen Accountants. There will also be a series of short interactive workshops on topics such as local SEO and social media, with the aim of helping businesses perform better online.

During the free event visitors will be able to meet local suppliers and exhibitors to discuss topics such as connectivity and broadband, EPOS systems and web design and development. Business Gateway’s Digital Boost team will be on hand to discuss the support available to businesses in the region throughout the day too.

The event, primarily aimed at newly started businesses in Dumfries and Galloway, will take place at The Bridge in Dumfries on Wednesday 5th October from 11am – 3pm. Business Gateway have previously held trade events as part of Dumfries and Galloway Business Week but this will be the first event since the Covid-19 outbreak.

Councillor Katie Hagmann Chair of Economy and Resources committee commented: “Digital is an exciting way forward for small businesses to punch above their weight. Whether you are a digital beginner or a bit more confident across digital platforms, there will be something that benefits every single business and it could help boost your future.”
Sean Marshall, Vice Chair said: “I would encourage local businesses to come along and speak to the specialists directly. It is great to be able to have face to face conferences after covid. Businesses will be able to ask questions and get help from local experts.”
