About the Event

The Business Exchange South West Charity Conference & Expo is back for 2023.

Returning to Bath Racecourse on Thursday 15th June the day will be an opportunity for local businesses, charities, and not-for-profits, to connect, share learnings and go for growth with far reaching benefits to our surrounding communities.

Building on the success of 2022’s event which had over 600 signups and 50+ exhibitors, the day will be packed with networking opportunities, seminar and workshop sessions, inspiring keynotes and more.

What past delegates have said.....

“As a charity we don't often get the opportunity to interact with businesses. It was a revelation to see how important and beneficial it is to foster symbiotic relationships between the two. I found the speakers all very relevant and insightful too.”

“The speakers were very informative - I came away with much food for thought on how we might improve practice in our organisation.”

“Great mixture of businesses and charities. Good networking, friendly people. An event filling a gap in the South West.”

"The whole event was well organised with a great buzz all day."

"It was a truly brilliant event. We left inspired and motivated."
