Expo East FAQs

WHAT IS IT?

CityX have created the largest B2B Expo in the Greater Lincolnshire area with the Lincolnshire Business Expo which is a phenomenally popular event for businesses within Lincolnshire to showcase themselves, predominantly to other businesses within the County.  One of the opportunities missed was that business doesn’t just happen within Lincolnshire and being able to exhibit to new customers across geographic borders is absolutely essential.

Hence Expo East was born, the only business expo to bring together the bordering counties of Lincolnshire, encouraging business across borders with our neighbours, an estimated 5 million people.
