Business 2012 and Huddlebuy, the daily deals site for entrepreneurs, have teamed up to offer four lucky entrepreneurs the chance to meet Sir Richard Branson, in person at Business 2012 on 18 March.

The competition, which is integrated across a range of social media platforms allows people to increase their chance of winning the coveted spot, if they pass on the invite too. Entrants simply need to enter their email address to take part

Running from 18 - 20 March at The O2 in London, Business 2012 is free to attend, with over 600 workshops, seminars and exhibitors available to learn from and speak to for anyone serious about setting up or developing their business.

Speaking about Business 2012 and the Huddlebuy competition to meet him, Sir Richard Branson said: "I will be at Business 2012, answering your questions and I am looking forward to meeting the competition winners. No one has a monopoly on good ideas and events like this can open the door to better connections and business opportunities: something we all need during these challenging times.”

Saurav Chopra, CEO of Huddlebuy said: "This is the competition with a prize that money can’t buy – an audience with one of the nation’s most celebrated businessmen. Sharing via social media is obviously pretty standard these days, but our platform now allows people to increase their probability of winning this amazing competition by sharing it with their online network. Put simply, if your friend wins, then you win too. And who wouldn’t want to win half an hour with Sir Richard Branson?!”

Vishal Misal, founder of Business 2012 said: "We are always seeking to do things differently in the way that we drive the event and promote it to our target audience. We have seen what the team at Huddlebuy can do and we were excited to see what they could come up with to help us.

“Social media play a key role for us in terms of promoting the event as so many of our customers and potential customers embrace it and can help us to spread the word as advocates. What’s unique about this use of social media with Huddlebuy , is that the competition can be shared via Facebook or Twitter and if any of those connections enter and win, then the ‘sharer’ automatically wins too. We are excited to be working a company that shares our innovative approaches and in the spirit of our keynote Sir Richard Branson isn’t afraid to think ‘what if?’” 

Business 2012 has been dissected into three areas, Start Up, SME and Mid-market to help visitors to tailor their visit and make the best use of their time. To see the range of exhibitors and keynote speakers already confirmed for Business 2012, or to register for a free ticket, visit
