​Expo Reaches Four Year Milestone

​The Big Sustainability Expo, formerly The Big Green Event, is set to open its doors for the fourth year running on the 8th October at its home the Hilton Ageas Bowl Southampton. Organisers, The Southern Sustainability Partnership, mark this year as a strategic milestone from which they planned the event would either sink or sail. They are delighted to announce it is a genuine contender in the UK and ​making ​an important impact on the region’s carbon reduction.

Anita Potten, Director said: “The message​ ​is finally hitting home for businesses that the expectations of their customers and workforce is radically chang​ing​ and is only likely​ ​to continue to do so.  It’s a simple case of getting on board now or risk being left behind in an already tough​ and​ competitive market​place​.”

The Expo attracts visitors from both the private and public sector, from right across the UK, and represents an enormous success for the region which now hosts its largest, dedicated event ​that focusses on corporate sustainability, environmental management and social value.

​Lynda Daniels, Director: A business operating in this way is one that is not wasting money, that is driven to improve profits, that is reacting to changing customer and workforce demands, is reducing risk and future-proofing its efforts. That is why this Expo is so important and this is why we urge the region’s organisations to mark the 8th of October in their diary now.”  

The Expo is free to attend, with ample free parking and visitors can expect up to 100 exhibitions stands, a keynote speaker theatre, ​series of workshops in the LearnZone, eco transport zone, innovation hub and eco coffee lounge.
