Visitors will be welcomed by the Mayor of Harrogate, Councillor Nick Brown, and the event will then be opened by Roger Marsh OBE, Chairman of Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership.

After the opening ceremony they will tour the Business Market and then join other distinguished guests for a VIPnetworking reception in the President’s Suite from 11.30.  Capacity is strictly limited so requests for an invitation should be addressed to: Organiser@YorkshireBusinessMarket.org

The Yorkshire Business Market is a proven low-cost networking and promotion opportunity for all Yorkshire businesses supplying products or services to other local businesses.  It is ideal for any business owners or managers looking for new ideas, new customers and new suppliers within the region.  We would be very grateful if you could publicise the event through your own connections.

As well as exhibition space filled with leading Yorkshire businesses, a full-day seminar programme will see practical advice given to visitors on everything from driving business growth to making more sales on LinkedIn.


Mark Lancaster, Chairman of the YBM organising committee, said:

“Organisations like the Leeds City Region LEP give a real boost to new businesses as they get off the ground and grow.

“It’s therefore very fitting that Roger Marsh has agreed to come and visit YBM this year. After officially opening the doors, he will tour the aisles and find out about the many success stories on show across the Harrogate District and beyond.

“YBM regularly attracts VIP visitors, so it’s a great opportunity for an ambitious business to catch the eye of one of the Yorkshire Region’s high flyers. Who knows where it may lead?”

YBM is made possible by the support of our Partners
