D2N2-funded The Big House to run Expo in September

The Big House, an initiative made possible by to a £2.1 million investment from the European Regional Development Fund via D2N2, will hold it’s annual Expo in September.

The Big House offers business support, events, grants and professional advice for creative and digital businesses in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.

On September 10th, in Nottingham’s Creative Quarter, The Big House EXPO will give local creative and digital businesses the opportunity to showcase their skills and expertise, to exchange ideas, to explore opportunities to work together, to sell goods and services to each other, to celebrate their achievements and the success of The Big House.

The Big House EXPO will celebrate all that is great about the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire’s creative and digital sectors and their huge potential to drive growth too.

The creative and digital sector is growing twice as fast as the rest of the UK economy, creating significant numbers of high-skill jobs and making a bigger than ever contribution to the country’s export success. 

The sector is vital to the successful economic future of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, already home to some of our best known and most innovative creative and digital businesses – from Paul Smith to Games Workshop, from Unidays to CSS Media.

Since 2016 the seven Big House partners have supported 1500 Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire entrepreneurs and businesses – from art and architecture to virtual reality and web design, via music and motion graphics – to develop their business and product ideas, to start-up, to scale-up, and to grow.
