Produced by live events and brand communications agency Concerto Live, the Boost Your Business roadshow will include a total of 10 free half-day events.

The sessions will see business owners and marketers hear from other SMEs, and members of the Facebook team will be on hand to provide expert advice, tips and best practices for boosting business. 

Martina McDonell, head of small business marketing EMEA at Facebook, said: "Our mission is to give people the power to share and to make the world more open and connected. That includes helping people connect with the businesses they care about. That’s why Facebook is committed to helping SMEs understand the tools available for them to grow their business."

Sean Doyle, head of creative services at Concerto Live, added: "We’re excited to be taking the Boost Your Business summer tour on the road, giving people the chance to meet the faces behind Facebook.

"Following the sell-out success of the Facebook SME Bootcamp in London back in January, there has been huge demand to bring the experience to SMEs across the UK. We’ve worked with Facebook to devise light versions of the event which will give 4,000 people the unique opportunity to learn from the experts in a relaxed environment, attend mini workshops and receive one-on-one advice."

The tour will begin on 29 June in Leeds, and it will visit Edinburgh, Cardiff, Birminigham and finally Manchester on 9 July.
