Worcester Sixways to host online event for business community

Sixways Stadium Worcester

Worcester’s Sixways Stadium is hosting a special online event on Wednesday May 26 to help local businesses from across the region to maximise their potential.

In partnership with Bartercard, a trading platform where businesses can buy and sell their goods or services as part of a global network of businesses, and business networking organisation Sterling Networks, Stands for the Expo will be chargeable at £100 and the Round Table networking will be operated by Sterling Networks at £7.99 per place.

For every stand sold, £25 will go to the Warriors Community Foundation, which exists to build a legacy for sport, education, health and social cohesion across communities.

Gill Wood, Head of Commercial at Worcester Warriors, said: “I am incredibly proud to launch the Sixways Virtual Expo in collaboration with Chris Kirby, Managing Director of Bartercard, the brainchild of this

“Building great partnerships is a vital ingredient to the success of Warriors. We are incredibly fortunate to have such supportive partners and sponsors that have remained loyal throughout the pandemic.

“It was with this in mind, that myself and the commercial team wanted to explore avenues to thank them for their continued support and to add value to their businesses, so that they could promote themselves further to our wider audience.

“During a discussion with Chris, he offered me the perfect solution with a platform that he had already created and the Sixways Virtual Expo powered by Bartercard was born.”

Bartercard Managing Director Chris Kirby, added: “I’m really proud that we can bring the business community back together albeit virtually, and it is a step in the right direction towards a sense of normality.”

Sterling Networks Sales Director Tracey Davis, said: “Sterling Networks has been running BIG Breakfast events as part of exhibitions for the past 10 years.

“We have had a long successful relationship with Sixways Stadium, with five of our current networking groups using the venue as our meeting location when we are able to run our face-to-face meetings.

“In fact, our last BIG Breakfast event was in February 2020 at Sixways Stadium where we had over 150 business owners in the room to network before a successful exhibition.

“In a year that has been challenging for many with technology now able to support this type of event, business owners can be positive about networking and taking a stand at an exhibition to help with their lead generation to support them in 2021.”
