EXSE 2021

Hello World…This Is Essex

ExSE 2021

11 — 13 MAY 2021

A 3 day festival celebrating business in Essex.

BEST Growth Hub’s ExSE 2021 Festival is the event of the year, for ambitious Essex-based businesses to show the world how great they are.

Our ground-breaking 3-day virtual event combines a business-community festival, virtual trade show and conference. ExSE 2021 celebrates the best we have to offer the world from our corner of England.

The event is free to attend and visitors are encouraged to register now at to secure their space and claim their free Digital Goody Bag. The event is suited to Essex businesses of any scale. (Start-ups, Scaleups, budding Entrepreneurs and ‘Side Hustlers’ are all welcome!) Businesses that are not located in Essex may also attend and seize the opportunity to do business with Essex.

ExSE is ahead of its time, using innovative (yet user-friendly) technology to gain access. From the comfort of their own homes or offices, visitors can take a virtual walk around a huge online hall (with 250 exhibitors organised into zones). The exhibition hall utilises 3D, animated technology and interactive virtual booths where visitors can chat to exhibitors via ZOOM. As well as meeting visitors, exhibitors can showcase pdf versions of their corporate brochures and videos to a potentially global audience.

Jon Birkett, BEST Growth Hub Manager, “Essex is the home of the Entrepreneur and also home to some extraordinary businesses. ExSE will harness the power of the people by bringing 2000+ businesspeople together for three days to educate, share experiences and foster sustainable business
connections that will help businesses grow. ExSE is the start of something big that will be repeated annually, building a valuable business community for Essex.”
