Princes Quay to host the first ever Hull Business Expo

The Business Culture Hull and East Yorkshire (HEY) is currently organising its  first ever Hull Business Expo, which will take place inside Princes Quay Shopping Centre on Wednesday 10 April 2024.

Giving local businesses an exciting opportunity to connect with each other and simultaneously supporting the regeneration of Hull City Centre, The Hull Business Expo will be held in the shopping centre’s 7,690-square-foot ground floor event space as well as the downstairs foyer.

Tony Bowler, Managing Director at The Business Culture HEY, said: “Our newly launched expo has been in the pipeline since our organisation was founded in 2016. We believe now is the perfect time to bring it to life and what better venue than Princes Quay. The event’s focus is to bring together businesses from across the region to raise brand awareness and create valuable relationships in vibrant surroundings.”

The Hull Business Expo will host 60 exhibitors from various sectors promoting their products and services. The event has been designed to facilitate pure networking and collaboration, without any distractions or time-sensitive agendas. Visitors can simply turn up any time between 10am and 4pm to explore what the region’s business community has to offer and have a chat with local business owners.

Princes Quay presents a wide range of retail, dining and lifestyle destinations, making it a hub of activity and the perfect location for a business expo event. Businesses can take out a 2-metre stand and benefit from the shopping centre’s regular footfall as well as people visiting specifically for the event. The on-site car park is open 24/7 and has over 900 spaces, making it very easy for stand holders and visitors to make a day of it.

As well as the opportunity to take out a stand, which is £150 + VAT for members of The Business Culture HEY and £250 + VAT for non-members, The Hull Business Expo also presents unique sponsorship opportunities.

“Princes Quay has multiple large-format promotional screens on the ground floor and inside the event space that we have access to on the day,” said Tony. “We’re looking for local businesses who are interested in advertising on these screens during the event. Simply get in touch at and we’ll create a bespoke advertising package to suit your marketing strategy and budget.”
