Event Category:


For the last two years we haven’t been meeting as many prospective clients, but product development and sales have continued at a rapid pace.

The GBSLEP Growth Hub and BCU have an opportunity for you to meet a large number of people very quickly, definitely expanding your network and potentially make some sales.

This Marketplace event will be held online on Wednesday 6, July 2022 from 12 – 2pm via Zoom.

Upon registration, all participants will be encouraged to put forward one product or service to offer to the wider audience – either for barter or sale – with a retail value circa £750. (This is a suggested value, you are welcome to pitch an item with a higher or lower price point).

On the day, participants will be randomly placed in a meeting room with a few other participants and given 2 minutes to “pitch” their selected product or service. After several rounds of pitching, parties who are interested in meeting individually with companies they have either heard pitch, or they saw on the participant list and are interested in meeting, will be put together for a meeting.

Serendipity: an unplanned, fortunate discovery

This online Marketplace is a serendipity event where you just might find your next big sale, either directly or through a new connection. Don’t miss out on the chance to network and pitch your wares for 2 hours from the comfort of your office.

Who should attend this webinar?

  • Companies with products and services valued at £750 that they could trade for products/services that they need
  • Creative companies in the Greater Birmingham and Solihull area who are keen to expand their product and service reach
