The Big House presents Expo!

2 August 2019

Celebrate the success and potential of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire's creative and digital business, meet new suppliers and customers and get an insight into the expert support that has been provided to entrepreneurs and SMEs by The Big House.

The creative and digital sector is growing twice as fast as the rest of the UK economy, creating significant numbers of high-skill jobs and making a bigger than ever contribution to the country's export success.

The sector is vital to the successful economic future of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, already home to some of our best known and most innovative creative and digital businesses – from Paul Smith to Games Workshop, from Unidays to CSS Media.

Since 2016 the seven Big House partners have supported 1500 Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire entrepreneurs and businesses - from art and architecture to virtual reality and web design, via music and motion graphics - to develop their business and product ideas, to start-up, to scale-up, and to grow.

On September 10th, in Nottingham's Creative Quarter, The Big House EXPO will give them the opportunity to showcase their skills and expertise, to exchange ideas, to explore opportunities to work together, to sell goods and services to each other, to celebrate their achievements and the success of The Big House.

"Nottingham City Council is committed to creating the right environment for businesses to grow and the inclusive collaboration which projects like Big House encourage are a key part of this strategy. We have a thriving small business community and a strong record of start-up survival.
