SMB College Group are Love Business EXPO’s VIP Lounge Sponsor

SMB College Group has become the official VIP Lounge sponsor of Love Business Expo 2024 for the second year running.

The group – which comprises Stephenson Campus, Melton Campus and Brooksby Campus – provides specialist Further and Higher Education, Apprenticeship programmes and professional qualifications for industry, in addition to a range of free distance learning courses.

Its students access high-quality learning and teaching in some excellent facilities with industry-standard resources and exceptional staff. This supports each student to achieve their full potential and contribute to sustainable economic growth and a thriving community.

The group will sponsor and host the main corporate hospitality area at Love Business 2024, which takes place at Holywell Park Conference Centre, in Loughborough, on 15 February.

The event’s theme is ‘Blast to the Future’. It will explore what’s on the horizon for businesses, how AI and digital tools will drive business growth, and how best to introduce the next generation of talent into the workforce.

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

Other event partners include headline sponsor East Midlands Chamber, the FSB, Kuku Connect, Cross Productions, Hardy Signs, Status Social, The Printers, Fancy Entertainment and dpi. Charity partners include Me & Dee and Help the Homeless Leicester & Leicestershire.

Dawn Whitemore, Chief Executive and Principal of SMB College Group, said:

“We’re delighted to be back on board as VIP Lounge sponsor for Love Business 2024, following a successful event earlier this year. One of our key aims is to build a first-class college group which speaks with one powerful and strategic voice while retaining deep roots in the local communities it serves. Bridging the region’s skills gap by aligning the skills and expertise of our students with the needs of local employers is what we do, so there’s a nice synergy with the theme of next year’s event.

“Our success is built on strong and effective collaboration with key stakeholders including local businesses and business support organisations. Love Business does a great job of getting these key people into the same room to network, collaborate and share knowledge and opportunities, which is why we’re pleased to be involved.”

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

“It’s amazing to have SMB College Group back on board for 2024 and we’re grateful for their support. They did a cracking job hosting the VIP area in 2023 and will no doubt build on this success next year.

“The VIP hospitality lounge is a key part of what makes Love Business so special. It gives people the chance to relax and recharge in an informal environment away from the busy exhibition areas, to network, make new connections and share opportunities.

“The event wouldn’t be what it is today without the kind and generous support of all our partners, who not only provide financial assistance through sponsorship but also share their time, insight and experience to help us make each year memorable. It really is a team effort, which is what we believe sets us apart from the rest.”
