Buy Local - Darlington
Darlington Business Expo
Darlington Business Club would like to encourage all businesses in the area to look to local companies to fulfil their goods and service needs.
Sourcing a local supplier has real economic, social and environmental benefits to Darlington as a whole. Supporting local businesses ensures more money gets re-circulated in the Darlington and district economy, instead of pouring outside of the area.
On 15th February 2012, Darlington Business Club and its partners successfully launched its Buy Local campaign at Darlington College. Over 70 businesses exhibited at the event detailing the goods and services they buy and sell, and to date almost 200 businesses have registered on the Buy Local website www.buylocal-darlington.co.uk
Darlington Business Club and partners are holding another event on Wednesday 31st October 2012 at Darlington College from 10.00am to 4.00pm. The event will take the form of a Business Showcase where each business will have a table to exhibit what they buy and sell. In this way other stand holders and visitors can see whether they might be able to buy from or supply to that company – hopefully generating discussions that could lead to local business being won.
We are inviting you to exhibit the goods and services you will be supplying over the coming months. To qualify you must have an office with a DL (or TS21 1) postcode.
The cost to exhibit is FREE to members of Darlington Business Club and only £40 to non-members.
If you would like to join the Darlington Business Club, you can do so here. Annual subscription starts from £40. So it certainly pays to join up!
The scheme has been created in partnership with Darlington Business Club and Darlington Borough Council.
Many thanks to our main sponsor Teesside University and our other sponsors, Darlington College, Sherwoods, Lingfield Point and The Northern Echo.

Networking is a great way to make new business contacts and build on existing relationships. Business professionals who network regularly can increase sales, reduce costs, find new suppliers, share ideas and experience. But it's not all work, you can have fun!
Our monthly meetings are friendly and informal. They include a guest speaker, buffet and the opportunity to network with fellow members and guests. Guests can attend 2 meetings free of charge - if you enjoy it then you'll need to become a member to attend further meetings.
Darlington Business Club brings together local businesses in a friendly atmosphere with the aim of:
- Supporting local business
- Sharing knowledge through networking
- Promoting business growth
