Experts from Google are coming to Wigan to help businesses in the borough grow online.
The Google Digital Garage will be delivering a free seminar to businesses on how they can use the search engine to increase sales as part of the Wigan Digital Marketing Roadshow, on 7 June at DW Stadium.
Dr Jayne Rodgers, from Google Digital Garage, said: “We’re delighted to announce our first visit to Wigan, and look forward to shedding light on how to unlock the sales potential of businesses in the borough using search engine optimisation and Google analytics.”
The event, which will be held between 9.00am-3.30pm, has been set up by Leigh-based events company Launch Events North West, to support businesses that want to learn new digital marketing skills.
Along with Google, the event includes meeting other digital experts including Standish-based consultant Rob Stephens who will be talking about blog writing and Pemberton-based ATTAIN Digital who will be sharing skills on email marketing.

The day will also include debates on women working in the tech industry, featuring a panel of female experts, and a panel debate on why businesses should invest in online marketing.
Digital Marketing Roadshow founder Nichola Howard, director of Leigh-based Launch Events North West, said:
“When I started out four years ago, I felt fearful of spending limited budgets on investing in working with digital and creative agencies, mainly due to my lack of understanding after receiving conflicting advice. I know I am not alone in feeling like this, so wanted to help bring agencies together with businesses to demystify all things digital.”
Andrea Gibson from Global Payments, sponsor of the Digital Marketing Roadshow, said: “Technology is moving so fast that businesses of all sizes can struggle to keep up. It is fantastic to bring experts and businesses together in one room at the Roadshow to make sure no business gets left behind.”
