Net XP trade expos are uniquely designed to provide a platform for you to market your business and brand to a wide range of companies.

Our events are different as they're themed as a game themed hub; we want people to have fun whilst networking and promoting their firms.

Speakers to our tradeshow events are experts in online and offline marketing and advertising media from across the digital and printed realm.

The annual expo is an informative and valuable event for you, your company, and for your industry. Register today and have fun as you play!


Our events are a unique and fresh approach to business networking, and hold a range of benefits for those exhibiting for the first time as well as those who have been to many of our expos before. All of the days activities are based on a fun theme, breaking the ice and encouraging businesses alike to bond and build lasting relationships.


Net XP's dynamic and exciting networking methods ensure for a day that not only creates smiles, but creates contacts between businesses whilst enjoying a fun themed game styled business tradeshow. Our expos give you the perfect platform to showcase your products or services in the local region of Sussex.
