Businesses For Sale Live at The Business Show - ExCeL, London, UK – 13th & 14th May 2015 is delighted to be partnering with the UK’s largest business event – The Business Show.

On May 13th and 14th 2015, more than 25,000 visitors will descend on London’s ExCeL Centre searching for answers to their burning business questions.

It’s worth noting the event is being held on a Wednesday and Thursday this year instead of the usual Thursday and Friday

Catering for anyone looking to start, buy or grow a business, visitors will find 250 seminars and 350 exhibitors plus 12 workshop theatres packed full of advice; delivered by people who have been there and done it already.

And what’s more, it’s completely free. 

Meet us there!

We are once again hosting Businesses For Sale Live! A seminar theatre dedicated to helping you get your head around the complex business transfer process.

Learn everything you need to know about buying a business – including where to look for your dream opportunity, how to fund the purchase and how to make sure your deal doesn’t fall apart at the last minute.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, our How to Sell a Business session will equip you with the knowledge you’ll need to maximise the value of your business and plan a successful exit strategy.

We have a fantastic team of industry professionals who will be delivering the sessions and sticking around to answer your questions. You’ll also be able to meet the team.

We’ll run to the same timetable on both days – simply turn up on the day and take a seat.

You’ll find us at stand number 440 or in the Businesses For Sale Live seminar hall – right next to Keynote Hall 1.
