Register for your exclusive space at this historic event and subscribe for future updates. Pitches are limited and are given on a first come first serve basis.

The micro-expo's main aim is to make the general public and visitors to Tesco aware of the shops and services available to them in the local area, this is a brilliant opportunity for businesses to demonstrate their commitment to making the Oxford Road a go to location as well as publicise products and services that may be hard to locate anywhere else in the town.

If you run a unique service or sell bespoke items then this is the ideal place to engage and connect to the 1000's of people who visit Tesco day-in day-out. 

All businesses wishing to take part in the micro-expo must be located, trading or registered in or around the West, Reading area - see terms and conditions at bottom of page.

Setting Up Your Stall:

Traders will be allocated in the walkway near the front of the Tesco superstore, in a similar fashion to the AA and Car Dealerships that sometimes promote their services and latest models from the location. Again we must emphasize that this opportunity is for promotional use only and stall holders are NOT allowed to sell products. Please honor the request of organisers so the event can continue and grow.

We wish to thank the Tesco managers and staff for giving the community not only this opportunity, but the use of its facilities and hospitality for the ORTA meeting held at its premises. We at ORTA hope we can all come together to make the experience a successful engagement for everyone involved, allowing its continued growth into the future.
