Chamber returns as headline sponsor of Love Business 2023

We’re delighted to announce that East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) is set to continue its support for the Love Business Expo as headline sponsor of the 2023 event.


Next year’s expo, which takes place at Holywell Park Conference Centre, in Loughborough, on 16 February, will build on the success of the 2022 event, which roared back into action following its COVID-enforced absence in 2021.

It will feature the same great mix of high-profile guest speakers, amazing exhibitors and activities and high-level networking opportunities, making it a must-attend event for local businesses of all sizes.

Once again, thousands of delegates, hundreds of exhibitors and dozens of sponsors and partner organisations will attend the annual showcase of local business success. 

The Chamber is a long-term partner of Love Business, having supported the event since we started in 2012. It first became the event’s headline sponsor in 2015 and has continued in that capacity ever since.

As well as sponsoring the expo, the Chamber is heavily involved in planning and delivering the speaker agenda and making sure that some of the seminars, presentations and keynotes support its policy aims, address members’ concerns and enable local businesses to feed into its lobbying activities.

Our annual Question Time-style Q+A, which the Chamber helps to facilitate, is always well attended and has become a firm fixture on the Love Business calendar. 

Chamber Chief Executive Scott Knowles said:

“We’re delighted to be the headline sponsor for Love Business 2023. We’ve backed this event since the very start and have seen it grow to become one of the biggest and best events of the year, which businesses across all three counties look forward to.

“The 2022 event was bigger and better than ever and showed that after two years of COVID-related lockdowns, businesses were ready to kickstart the roaring 20s with a bang.

“We continue to do all we can to support our members through these challenging times. Events like Love Business give us the platform to engage with local businesses, celebrate their successes, understand their concerns and shape our policies to reflect the support they need.”

Phil Megson, Director of Love Business founder Quiet Storm Solutions, added:

“Having the Chamber back on board as headline sponsor for 2023 is fantastic news, and we’re grateful for its ongoing support.

“The Chamber has been a keen supporter of Love Business since our early days at Castle Donington, and it’s been great to see the event grow as the Chamber has expanded its reach and influence across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

“As a key strategic event partner, we’re looking forward to once again working with the Chamber to develop the speaker programme.

“Our Question Time session is always a lively debate, with many different perspectives from across the political spectrum. At a time of continued uncertainty, it allows local business to share their concerns directly with local decision-makers.

“The 2023 event is already shaping up to be a great event, and we’ll be doing all we can, alongside the Chamber and our other event partners, to make it another roaring success.”
