A MAJOR exhibition showcasing businesses is being held in Keighley.

Organisers say the event is set to be the biggest gathering of its kind "the town has ever seen".

Hundreds of businesspeople are expected to converge on Victoria Hall to meet exhibitors, hear speakers and take part in networking sessions.

The free event will feature around 60 stalls and exhibition stands.

Behind the June 13 Airedale Biz Showcase are Blue Sky SEO Marketing and Airedale Enterprise.

David Robertson, of Blue Sky SEO Marketing, says: "The exhibition is testament to the vibrant business community we have in Keighley and surrounding areas.

"I’m thrilled to partner with Wendy Spencer at Airedale Enterprise to create a platform where businesses can showcase their offerings, connect with potential partners and gain valuable insights from industry experts. We both promote Breakfast Bites networking sessions too.

"One of the distinguishing features of the Airedale Biz Showcase is its size and inclusivity. It promises to be the largest gathering of local businesses, entrepreneurs and professionals the town has ever seen.

"The event is free for all visitors, providing an accessible opportunity for companies to raise awareness of their brands, explore potential suppliers and foster meaningful connections within the business community."

He adds that the event, which will run from 10am to 3pm, is drawing interest and bookings from neighbouring towns and cities.

Wendy says: "We believe that collaboration is key to driving economic growth and fostering innovation.

"This event is not just about showcasing individual businesses, it's about creating a supportive ecosystem where companies can thrive and succeed together. It’s interesting to note how many businesses are now looking at Keighley as a place to invest, and are attending the Breakfast Bites networking sessions."

Free parking is available at the exhibition.

Organisers say that just three stalls per sector will be allowed, so early booking is advised.
