With the potential for 85 stands, Business Innovation South Expo is the first large-scale expo in the region providing a platform for companies in the STEM and Business Innovation sectors to showcase their latest products and services to potential customers.  

Our region has well recognised centres of excellence within each of the targeted expo sectors: science, technology, engineering and business innovation and yet, outside of London, there is no large-scale showcase for companies in these sectors promote to other businesses. Our vision is to create that showcase thus enabling business owners/senior managers to bring themselves up to speed with the latest technologies and products available, and in turn, help them drive their businesses forward.  

To ensure our attendees can make the best use of their time on the day, every exhibitor will have their logo/url link and brief company information on our Exhibitors page with a note of their Zone enabling you to plan your day. On the day their logo will be on a screen outside their chosen Zone to help you easily navigate your way around.

Throughout the day there will be speaker sessions on topics ranging from “Why corporate governance is key to enhancing your brand reputation?” to “Cyber Security: protection, prevention and rectification”. We are also delighted to have Steve Northam of SN Technologies Group (incorporating Bio-Teq and IncuHive centres) talking about everything from “Business incubators to human microchips” and Emma Wilson of Emari Marketing with a case study talk around the growth of Minus7.  Spaces are limited to 155 for each session so to avoid disappointment it is essential that attendees book their chosen speaker session(s) when booking to attend.

We have invited select companies that work in key service sectors such as legal, finance, cyber security, web presence etc to take stands.  There will only be one stand/company for each given sector and we hope having this expertise at the expo is beneficial both the businesses exhibiting and the businesses attending. Find out more about the service sector exhibitors.

The entry fee of £10 + VAT includes tea or coffee upon arrival but as we hope you will join us for the whole day, giving you the opportunity to take in the whole expo and speakers sessions, we can offer an uplift of £10 + VAT which will give attendees access to a buffet lunch in the dining room being served between 12pm and 2.30pm. Hot and cold drinks and snacks will be available from the main hub bar and outside the Cedar Suite.
