Next month, British Gas Business will be taking part in The Great British Business Show at London Olympia, a comprehensive exhibition including workshops, networking opportunities and expert talks so that you can get all the advice you need to help you to grow your business and move to the all-important next level.

The show takes place on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd of November, and British Gas Business will be at stand 1218. Drop by and visit for a chat about all of your business energy needs from boiler maintenance and care to energy savings and the benefits of smart meters. We’ll also be offering you the chance to win £1,000 towards your business energy bill as well as a CarePlan 3S to cover your business gas heating system.

During the course of the two day event there will also be a wealth of seminars led by some of the most recognisable and influential business brains in the UK including Dragons’ Den’s James Caan and founder and CEO of By Caprice, Caprice Bourret. There will be over 140 seminars during the course of the event covering a wide range of topics from Search Engine Optimisation to an introduction to start-up law. Among the line-up, two of our British Gas Directors will also be lending their expertise to lead seminars on the subjects of ‘How to Take Control and Start Your Energy Saving Journey’ and ‘Demystifying Your Gas & Electric Duty Holder Responsibilities’.

Tickets for the event are free and can be ordered in advance through the website. There are more than 200 exhibitors at the show so it’s a good idea to plan ahead and think about which seminars and talks you would like to attend. We’d love to see you on the day and to talk to you in person about your business energy needs and anything else we can help you with, so make sure you plan some time to stop by and say hello.
