Chamber Chat –  Vicky Lofthouse

By the time you are reading this, it will well and truly be the final countdown to the single largest project/event I have ever managed and organised.

And I have no doubt that the North Lancashire Expo will be 100% epic. If you are wondering why I am so confident, it is because I know, mostly personally, the amazing businesses being showcased over the two days. The businesses exhibiting come in all shapes and sizes, varying turnover and industries, but the one thing they very much do have in common is the amazing area they work in and the great people they employ.

North Lancashire, and the areas around Morecambe Bay, are a very economically important area within the energy generation, defence, education, and transport industries, without mentioning the soon to be £41 million Health Innovation Campus at Lancaster University.

The last nine months has been a great journey for me and my team at the Chamber, creating and organising the Expo, but please don’t think we have done it alone, we have had fantastic support and help from some amazing people. But the project management task was one that we will remember forever and one we have learnt so much from already, the first of anything is so very special, from the first time you ride a bike to your first child.

So, with your help let’s make the first North Lancashire Expo, one to remember and it will be epic.

I very much look forward to welcoming you at the Expo on the 24th & 25th September, in the custom built Expotorium at Lancaster Brewery.
