More than 1,500 people attended the event, which gave local businesses the opportunity to network and build business relationships.
Exhibitors ranged from IT specialists and motor racing companies to golf club owners and visitors looking to bring more business to the city.
A series of workshops took place throughout the day, as well as talks from high profile guest speakers including BBC’s Daily Politics presenter Andrew Neil, gadget expert and radio producer Olly Mann and lastminute.com founder Brent Hoberman CBE.
Delegates were able to try their hand on a 30ft putting green and relax and enjoy a drink with colleagues at a special cocktail bar.

“By holding it in the Motorpoint Arena it’s making a bold statement. It’s the biggest venue in the city and based on the feedback from last year we wanted to make that step forward.”
