After a two year hiatus due to the pandemic, Blackpool-based Pink Link welcomed more than 200 guests to the business networking group’s International Women’s Day event at Preston North End’s Deepdale stadium.
From handmade soaps and skincare to coaching and legal services, business was booming in the Guild Lounge as exhibitors enjoyed the opportunity to get together once more and do some serious networking as well as hear from inspirational speakers.
