The first Football Trade Directory Open Day proved to be a fantastic success with a host of clubs and businesses attending the event at our offices in Blackburn, Lancashire.
Over 60 attendees from football clubs and businesses working within football enjoyed a day of presentations ranging from the changing face of football to how e-marketing can add to the bottom line of your business.
There was also the opportunity to network in an informal environment as the day proved to be a triumph, with all those who attended finding the event well worthwhile.

David Milbourne, from Events, Stewarding, Training and Consultancy, said: “An excellent day, the speakers and staff have been great.”
Gavinlee Ellison from Concave Sports concluded: “The event was very helpful with a relaxed environment which made it easier to network with the attendees.”
Accrington Stanley Managing Director David O’Neill remarked: “I think the day was a brilliant idea, the set up was great and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
Blackburn Rovers Finance Director Martin Goodman was the winner of our Business Card Draw whilst all attendees enjoyed a buffet with pies from Clayton Park Bakery and an assortment of desserts from Costco.

“It was great to show how the Football Trade Directory is continually moving forward and looking to bring clubs and businesses together in our community. We had some fantastic feedback from the presentations and for the day as whole and will certainly be looking to do this again in the future.”
