Inspiring Business by Sharing Success

Connecting success at Love Business Expo 2018

KuKu Connect were thrilled to take part in this year’s Love Business Expo as the Official Networking Partner and are proud to announce they will be continuing as Networking Partner for 2019!


KuKu Connect hosted a special Connect Reception in the afternoon, which was sponsored by GEC Luxury Design & Build and supported by 200 Degrees Coffee and the Catena Network at which Jennifer, Lady Gretton, DCVO, JP, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Leicestershire and the Mayor of Charnwood, Councillor, Mrs Pauline Ranson both attended to meet exhibitors and delegates from across the region.


Businesses connected over 200 Degrees Coffee during the special reception where guests had the chance to test out GEC’s new virtual reality headset where viewers can view 3D plans and a walk through of their new home or extension, a new luxury service, pretty much unique to the luxury house design and build sector and an innovative first for the East Midlands.


The Connect Reception prize draw winners are:

Kelly Wheeler from Field Sport UK – winning a bottle of Moet & Chandon Champagne Grand Vintage 2008 and a Chocolate Making Worksop for two people at luxury chocolatier Cocoa Amore

Max Palmer-Jeffery from Berkeley Insurance Group – winning a £100 voucher for Everyman Barbers

Alex Lees from Tale Production – winning a six-bottle case of Catena wine from the Catena Network


“The Love Business Expo is something we feel very passionate about, as it’s an excellent and effective platform to showcase some of the most talented and innovative businesses in the region, out to thousands of business people who attend on the Expo. At KuKu we connect you to other friendly business people from a truly diverse range of sectors. We are all about building authentic business relationships; we don’t do presentations, pitches or hard sell and our formula has created over £1m worth of business from our membership. We look forward to supporting Love Business in 2019.”
