Brent to stage three brilliant new events promoting local businesses

Brent’s vibrant business community will receive a major boost in 2020 with the launch of three new events, including a prestigious awards programme.

Brent for Business – a Brent Council initiative – is staging the events to showcase the opportunities for business growth in the London borough – currently undergoing a multi-billion pound programme of regeneration.

The first, Meet the Buyer, positions small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) at the heart of the regeneration. The one-day event will be held at The Drum, in Wembley on Wednesday, 18 March 2020. Focusing on the construction sector it will bring together developers and construction sector suppliers to network and negotiate new deals.

The second new event is the Brent Business Expo on Wednesday, 22 April – an important, large scale business to business market, featuring a top-class range of exhibiting companies, topical seminars and prime networking opportunities.

The Expo will also host the launch of the third event of the programme, the prestigious new Brent Business Excellence Awards – an ambitious programme to recognise and celebrate the business community’s successes and achievements.


Cllr Shama Tatler, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Property and Planning at Brent Council said: “2020 is set to be a fantastic year for Brent – not least due to our status as London Borough of Culture. Brent Council is keen to work with key stakeholders to ensure that all development in Brent benefits the borough as a whole and provides opportunity for its businesses. We want to help Brent businesses expand their networks, increase their marketing and provide platforms that allow our businesses to grow. So please get involved and take full advantage of this unique opportunity, to ensure Brent businesses go from strength to strength.
