On April 27 2022, Alex Vinall and Lucy Blackmore from Air Social joined hundreds of other local businesses at the Surrey Business Expo, which took place over two days at Surrey Sports Park in Guildford. Surrey Business Expo was started in 2005 and is today run by the super-well-connected Paul Bridgland and Steve Page. The Expo attracts over 1,000 local business people every year, with exhibitors coming from as far afield as North London and Portsmouth.
Featuring on an esteemed panel of local experts including Allen Ruddock and hosted by Louise Camby from Presentation Excellence, Alex and Lucy shared their tips on: "Everything you need to know about social media". The lively discussion included hints and tips about how best to harness various social platforms for business.
Getting social in Surrey
Questions ranged from; "What are the most common mistakes people make on social media" (*clue: not shortening links, posting for the sake of it and posting too much sales content) to; "Should I be on TikTok?" Audience members included representatives from a wide range of local businesses including Surrey Chambers, Surrey University and The Apprenticeship Hub.
Air Social Account Manager Lucy Blackmore commented, "This was a fantastic morning where we were able to bounce ideas around, have in-depth discussions and of course catch up with some familiar faces from the local business scene." Lucy added, "Not only is the Surrey Business Expo a great networking event, it’s also a brilliant way to keep up-to-date with what’s going on in and around Surrey. It felt so good to be back here after a two-year pause."
