We offer you something completely unique.

We took the decision to showcase just one supplier in each product, technology or service category. This provides you with the strongest voice in your area and an opportunity to provide our visitors with something different as they make their way around the show floor.

Serious Buyers

The most common phrase we hear from our exhibitors is that our Expo does not attract ‘tyre kickers’.  That is because we work very hard all year to form those partnerships that enable us to share the quality of the event content to the right professionals. Those individuals with the right job titles who will only take time from their busy schedules to attend an event if they have a genuine agenda to do so.

What you told us snapshot – we promise to add more

“We found the Big Green Event Expo 2017 extremely useful and interesting for meeting like-minded businesses and how they operate. The event solidified our belief in Ozone Cleans’ Green Credentials and gave us the confidence to explore this area further. It also put us in touch with businesses that would be able to help us increase our presence in this field. I would certainly recommend attending this event if you want to showcase your business in the Green Arena!”

Mark Powell, Sales Manager, Ozone Clean

“Even with three of us on the stand at times, we were often all busy with visitors and we could not fault the quality.” Mark Smith, Solved FM 

Our stand visitor ratio was 80%. At first, I wondered if the show was for us, but how wrong was I and we are now dealing with the leads.”  Centrica/British Gas

The Big Green Event Expo was one of the easiest and simplest shows we have exhibited at. From booking to set up and dismantling the stand, it was organised in a way that kept stress and cost to a minimum. We met a lot of existing and potential customers, in very pleasant surroundings, and we have generated a lot of appointments and quotations on the back of it. It was also great to see other local companies with the same objectives as us. It was encouraging to see that there are a lot of organisations trying to cut carbon footprints and reduce landfill. We will definitely  be there in 2017.”  Steve Mason – MD – Pearce Group. 

“The Big Green Event was a real success for us by putting so many like-minded people together. We have been waiting for an industry-specific show and this one was spot on. Can’t wait for next year.”  Nick Bainton, Managing Director – Led-Zip Lighting from Northbourne in Dorset.

“Following an introduction at Expo The Big Green Event last September, my wife and I bought our first electric van from exhibitor Nissan.” Jason Light – Sustainability & Climate Change Manager, Eastleigh Borough Council

“We had a great response at The Big Green Event 2016. This was the first year of the Expo, which had a fantastic variety of exhibitors and turn out of visitors. The Expo was designed to demonstrate how an organisation can improve its processes, considerably reduce running costs and environmental impact – and it did just that.”  LC Energy

“I really enjoyed my day at the Exhibition and particularly the Electric Vehicle Zone”. Tim Linford, TJL Associates – Energy Consultant

We met many new suppliers and have already had meetings and implemented these new products. Helen Cookson, Organix

Our Bendy Bollards are now installed outside our new facility that we found at the Expo.” Ben Fredriksen, Pipefix

Thanks to The Big Green Event Expo we now have a major new contract with a leading organisation quite close to us but had not worked with before the event.” Peter Schofield, GRP Environmental
