Business Innovation South Expo

Thursday, 12th September 2019
The South's first large scale expo outside London.

« Back to the Event List

Business Innovation South Expo has been developed with two key aims:


·      to create an annual expo setting for established companies in the science, technology, engineering and business innovation sectors who serve and support businesses across the region;

·         to provide a platform for businesses to bring themselves up to speed with the latest technology, products and services available to help them power their business forward.


We invite businesses to ask themselves two questions:

·         Does your company have access to the right event to showcase your products and services outside of London? ·         As a decision maker, do you struggle to keep abreast of the latest products and innovations available to help reduce costs/carbon footprint, enhance your services, protect and future proof your business?

If a business can answer yes to either question they should join us to be at the #BIS2019 Expo, 12th September, Chilworth Manor - either as an exhibitor or an attendee – because it has been specifically created with them in mind.


Industries we hope will exhibit?


•       Renewable energy                                                         

•       Marine technology

•       Smart/intelligent building technology

•       IT/communications technology

•       Cyber technology

•       Virtual/extended reality

•       Wearable technology

•       Construction related technologies

•       Bio technology etc…

•       IOT technology

•       Motor and power technology

•       Telecoms technology

•       Sports related technology           

•       Product design

•       Robotic technology

•       Educational technology

            •       Nanotechnology




Whilst the majority of stands will naturally be for companies within the science, technology, engineering and business innovation sectors we have invited local companies to take a stand where there is synergy through provision of a key service to companies – thus providing benefit to both exhibitors and other businesses attending the expo.  The companies identified cater for both large and small businesses and would add greatly to the event.
