Bedford Radio is celebrating following their Silver Award win for Business Innovation at the SME Bedfordshire awards for their Bedford Business Expo. The Expo, held at King’s House, was the first one in Bedford in many years and, being organised by the local radio station, was aimed to showcase businesses who want to do business locally. Around 50 businesses, organisations, and local charities exhibited to more than 250 attendees.
Bedford Radio’s Station Manager Martin Steers said: ‘The Expo was an outstanding success and we are still receiving positive feedback from exhibitors and visitors. For us to receive this award is a great achievement for our team of volunteers who put this together, and shows that Bedford Radio adds value to the business community in Bedford.’
Planning has already started for Bedford Business Expo 2024, which will again be held at King’s House on Tuesday 12th March 2024. Next year’s event will be bigger, better and bolder, and expressions of interest are now open for any business or organisation who might want to secure a stall when bookings open. The form is available at: https://bedford.radio/businessexpo.
Martin Steers added: ‘We can not wait for the Bedford Business Expo 2024. Supporting local businesses is a core part of what we want to do with Bedford Radio as the local radio station for Bedford, and we hope businesses will be keen to return that support, by promoting the station and advertising with us to reach local audiences when we launch on DAB.’
The station is looking to launch on local DAB across Bedford soon and is currently recruiting and training volunteer presenters to take on a variety of shows to entertain, inform, and engage everyone across Bedford Borough. Anyone interested in getting involved with Bedford Radio should head to their website www.bedford.radio and any businesses interested in future events, or advertising on the station should head to www.bedford.radio/advertise
