5 Liverpool Trade Shows to Visit in 2023

As one of the UK’s most important port cities, Liverpool has always been a hub for businesses and commerce. Here at Centaur Properties, we rent commercial properties to a wide variety of companies based in the city, from all industries and sectors. We know, as well as anybody, the tremendous depth of commercial talent you can find in a city like Liverpool.

It’s little wonder, then, that the city plays host to many trade shows throughout the year, catering to the wide variety of businesses that operate in the city centre and the broader Liverpool City Region. 2023 is no exception, with several exciting shows and conferences already lined up. These are just five of the many such trade shows that we recommend you visit in the coming year.

Merseyside Business Expo

Running since 2018, the Merseyside Business Expo is the region’s largest B2B trade show and an excellent opportunity to network, make connections, and generate leads in the Liverpool City Region and beyond. With more than 150 exhibitors and over ten times as many attendees, you’ll find business leaders from all of the region’s key industry sectors here.

Liverpool Jobs Fair

Hosted at Anfield Stadium, the Liverpool Jobs Fair takes place a few times each year. Dates have already been announced for February, May, and September 2023. These all-day events attract hundreds of applicants looking for their ideal job, giving you the pick of potential candidates to fill essential roles in your own workforce, as well as seeing what other local companies are providing for their employees.

Green Expo

While not, strictly speaking, a Liverpool trade show, the Green Expo takes place in nearby Chester and is an important event for any company concerned about their green credentials. The expo will take place in June 2023, with a range of exhibitors and keynote speakers, all dedicated to limiting the impact of local industry on the environment. You will be able to make key connections with like-minded companies as well as finding new ways to reduce your own carbon footprint.

Liverpool Fashion Week

Starting on 16 October 2023, Liverpool Fashion Week is recognised around the world as a highly-influential show for new designers. It gives them the opportunity to make a name for themselves on the international stage. If you’re involved in the fashion industry, either as a designer, a stockist, or a buyer, you owe it to yourself to make time for this prestigious event.

Digital Manufacturing Week

Usually hosted in November (though next year’s dates have yet to be confirmed), the Digital Manufacturing Week is a cornerstone of the manufacturing industry. Showcasing the latest in advanced manufacturing technology, the show brings thousands of visitors to the city every year, including tech developers, industry leaders, manufacturers, investors, and more. The event includes the The Manufacturer Top 100 and MX Awards, which honour the talented individuals and top-tier companies in the digital manufacturing sector.

Whatever industry sector you’re a part of, Centaur Properties has a wide range of commercial properties available to rent in Liverpool and the surrounding area. Get in touch with the team today to learn about the latest availability or to arrange a virtual or in-person viewing.
