A north of Scotland business networking group is putting the spotlight on products and services in Moray.

BNI Moray, part of 17 networking groups across the north of Scotland, is hosting its Moray Expo at Elgin Town Hall on Thursday, September 6 (2018) with 25 exhibitors taking part. Businesses exhibiting include firms that supply photocopiers, home improvements, financial advice and office solutions.

BNI Moray is part of BNI Scotland North, which also has seven networking groups in Aberdeen, two in Dundee and further groups in Inverness, Inverurie, Peterhead, Montrose, Perth, Dunfermline and Glenrothes. BNI Scotland North is owned by Aberdeen-based Angela and Bryan Kinghorn.

Angela Kinghorn, executive director at BNI Scotland North, said: “We’re delighted BNI Moray is hosting an exhibition to highlight local services and products. We’re sure the event is going to be a great success.”

BNI members and non-members are welcome to attend the Moray Expo, 10am to 4pm, and admission is free. The event is being supported by local radio station MFR.

BNI Scotland North, which has 400 members, will celebrate its successes across the region with an awards night at The Chester Hotel in Aberdeen on Friday, November 23 (2018).
