Director, Anita Potten enthuses over the lineup of keynote presenters this year: “We are delighted to confirm that the Vice President of the British Plastics Association and leading renewable energy electricity provider, Ecotricity will be among this years lineup. It’s vitally important for businesses to get on board with this agenda and we urge our fellow Dorset businesses to join us on the day.”
Director, Lynda Daniels: Despite the increased methods of connecting buyers with suppliers today, a leading procurement specialist reports it has become harder to do so now than in the last thirty years. Events of this type, though seemingly traditional in their approach, remain one of the most powerful business tools that bring an industry sector together – under one roof in the most cost and time efficient way.”
Visitors can expect free entry to the Expo, as well as a free educational line up in the LearnZone and free parking.  Doors open from 10.00am to 4.00pm at the Hilton Ageas Bowl, West End, Southampton – with its easy road and rail links.
