innov8 Conference Services announce that they have been awarded the prestigious contract to promote and manage the Exhibition for 2014 FSB Annual Conference in Manchester.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) which will hold next year’s Annual Conference at Manchester Central on the 27 -29 March 2014, has contracted innov8 Conference Services to expand and manage its Exhibition.

The Federation of Small Businesses is the UK’s largest campaigning pressure group promoting and protecting the interests of the self-employed and owners of small firms. Formed in 1974, it now has almost 200,000 members across 33 regions and 194 branches. The Annual Conference in Manchester will attract over 600 members, and over 300 non-members to the event and Manchester. 2014 will see a new larger Exhibition which will be free to enter for pre-registered delegates, whereas the main FSB Conference and sessions will be available only to full members of the Federation of Small Businesses.

James Caldwell, Co-Owner of innov8 Conference Services, said “We’re delighted to be working with the Federation of Small Businesses on the 2014 Annual Conference. The FSB is determined to grow their Annual Conference into the biggest Business Event in the calendar, and our goal is to make that happen.”

innov8 Conference Services will promote and manage the Exhibition on behalf of the FSB whilst also creating a new type of attendee package which will allow non-FSB members to attend the Exhibition for free. The 2014 Conference in Manchester will see its Exhibitor numbers double for what is the FSB’s 40th Anniversary, with further options to grow the Exhibition further in 2015.

Norman Lay, Chairman of the Corporate Events & Sponsorship Committee confirmed,“I’m pleased to be working with innov8 on marketing and promoting our Conference in Manchester. It marks an important step forward in our plans to develop the Conference into a major business-to-business event.”

The FSB’s 2014 Annual Conference will be held on 27th to 29th of March 2014 at Manchester Central. Organisations interested in Exhibiting at the event should contact innov8 Conference Services directly on
