Nearly 4,500 people flocked to Brighton earlier this month for the annual Eco Technology Show. Attendance was up sharply compared to last year’s event with the number of trade visitors alone increasing by more than 40%, indicating strong growth and firmly establishing the show as a hub for the public & private sector, suppliers, distributors, builders and installers.
Combining leading industry speakers with over 120 exhibitors, the two day event attracted both business visitors and members of the general public, all keen to learn how the latest eco technologies can save money and protect the environment.
Visitors were crawling all over the stands, which featured innovative eco products such as a rucksack that protects its wearer from skin cancer, environmentally friendly porous paving for footpaths, driveways and car parks and eco infrared heating systems that help prevent mould growth and slash energy bills.
Nicola Gunstone, commercial director at The Eco Technology Show, is delighted: “This year’s event was a big success with speakers and exhibitors from leading industries clamoring to participate. The diversity of innovations exhibited and eco issues tackled in the conference and seminars opened the show up to a far broader audience than ever before, as evidenced by the increase in footfall this year.”
“For businesses seeking to lower their carbon footprint to families looking to save money and make their homes energy efficient, we brought together the latest innovations and experts in a truly unique, interactive event.”
The Eco Technology Show’s packed seminar and conference program was a great success, with quality speakers like Geoff Raw of Brighton & Hove City Council and Kevin Byrne, MD of Checkatrade.com passing on the benefits of their experience and expertise:
“The Eco Technology Show was a superb event showcasing businesses across the region and highlighting the thought leadership, creativity and enterprise in the city”, commented Raw.
Byrne was also positive: “The quality of attendees was very high, I found my audience receptive and engaging. Many people were there to do business and I made quite a few important connections. It was a pleasure to speak at the Eco Technology Show.”
The Eco Technology Show will return to the Brighton Centre on 26/27 June 2014.
