Last month, for the second time in two years, the Northern Media team headed down to Wakefield Business Week to exhibit at MY Conference Wakefield. After the exhibition last year proved to be highly advantageous to our team, we thought it would be great to go for another day of networking, exhibiting and representing the booming local business scene.
For Wakefield Business Week, which is organised by Wakefield First, Wakefield Council and the Mid-Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce, this was its fourth year of connecting businesses and driving growth in the area. The MY Conference Wakefield event took place on Wednesday June 15th and was a valuable experience for everyone involved.
Complete with a full-size exhibition display, the Northern Media team were represented by Managing Director Chris Elliott and Sales Director Jonathan Scott, as well as Ewan Burkinshaw, Anthony Bowyer (Marketing Executives), and Jess Venson, Graphic Designer.
They were all busy throughout the day talking to local businesses, conversing about SEO, social media, web design and graphic design, as well as the many other facets of digital marketing and the growing significance of businesses within Wakefield.
Chris Elliott, Managing Director of Northern Media, said the following regarding the exhibition and the week in general:
“This was the second time we’ve done the exhibition and once again it proved to be a worthwhile event. It provided a great opportunity to raise our profile across the Wakefield area, as well as enabling us to discuss our range of results-driven marketing services with visitors and other exhibitors.
“We had some decent interest in a range of services so we look forward to following up on those leads and hopefully developing some relationships.”
Each year, Wakefield Business Week returns to Wakefield, with events across the city aiming to drive economic growth and connect businesses. Northern Media are delighted to be a part of that. We’re a full-service digital marketing agency providing a diverse range of creative services for businesses across Yorkshire.
