The most powerful argument for best business practice in the region. Attracting large organisations from the public and private sector, as well as SMEs from across the UK.

The Big Green Event Expo is located close to the vibrant port, shopping and entertainment City of Southampton, with excellent road, rail and air links. Just minutes from a train station, the prestigious Hilton Ageas Bowl Convention Centre is on the site of the picture perfect home of Hampshire Cricket.

The Expo brings together hundreds of different exhibits, inspirational keynote speakers, an electric and hybrid vehicle arena, with test drive opportunities and free forums. All chosen to improve your environmental and facilities management, enhance your processes, reduce your running costs and help you understand and react to the changing and challenging expectations of customers and staff in the 21st century.

You name it, we have probably already done it.”
We research new products, technologies, services and experts all year long, to ensure we have something new or improved to show you – alongside the best suppliers. In 2017 the Expo was host to five products that had not been seen at any other show before.

Our time and money are limited. Where does an organisation of our size and resources begin with effective environmental and facilities management?”
We certainly don’t advocate everything right now, we host the event annually so that you can look at a step by step approach and build it into a short, medium and long-term strategy. We also offer a comprehensive educational platform through our keynote speakers and free workshops.

Can our business really reduce its running costs?”
Each year our stand experts are able to demonstrate extremely impressive cost savings and process improvements from using their products or services. Real case studies with real, proven data.

How do we engage our staff and help them understand the benefits?”
We run workshops and present keynote sessions that will help, as well as products and solutions on our show floor.

What happens after the Expo, what help is open to me then?”
We run other events, conferences and forums. We can also arrange one-to-one guidance sessions and accept questions all year round.

“We budget for our waste and energy costs, they are a headache we manage.
Introducing a culture of energy and waste management can often begin a process across the rest of the company and its usage and costs. What company could not put those savings to better use?

Whatever your issue, we are sure the answer will lie in a visit to the 2018 Expo

iolo Williams – Presenter BBC Spring Watch

“I’m a huge supporter of The Southern Sustainability Partnership and its Big Green Event. We must all contribute to seeking a greener and more sustainable way of life.

Businesses, both big and small, have a key role to play in this and in order to meet their full potential, I would urge them to work in partnership with The Southern Sustainability Partnership and attend the Big Green Event.”

What to expect if you are visiting for the first time

  • New and groundbreaking products and technologies.
  • Each stand offering something different: We try to host one of each type of product, service or technology to ensure as much as possible under one roof.

  • Well researched event: Our team of contributors carry out extensive research into the sector to find what we need to bring to our visitors.

Vehicle Arena

“I visited the Big Green Event in the hope of meeting new suppliers with sound environmental credentials and I wasn’t disappointed. I found new contacts for a range of requirements including heating, lighting and energy supply. I also met The Bendy Bollard Company who demonstrated their products to me. I was so impressed that our company arranged to buy 7 that were soon installed. Thank you for putting on such a helpful show.” Ben Fredriksen – Pipefix

Facilities Management

We have displayed earlier in other sustainability shows in the South and also the Big Green Event of 2016. It is a pleasure to see this year’s show was bigger, more attractive and populated than all the previous ones. It shows that the interest for sustainability, in general, is growing and people are gradually supporting organisations and businesses within the sector. I personally look forward to the next year’s event. David Saraby – Air-Site Limited

Estates Management

This year’s show was even busier than last year’s event and the quality of the leads was really good. There was also a much wider range of company’s visiting this year which opens doors to industries that we wouldn’t normally speak too. Well done. Steve Mason – Pearce Group

Environmental Management

I really enjoyed this year’s show, it had a good blend of speakers and some really interesting and useful exhibitors. Although it’s only 2 years old it already seems well established and is fast becoming an important event for the South’s green and sustainable businesses. Stuart Mariner – Commercial Recycling

Keynote Theatre

We found the exhibition really useful and soon afterwards had set up meetings with three of the exhibitors we met on the day.
Helen Cookson, Organix

Learn Zone

“We found the Big Green Event Expo 2017 extremely useful and interesting in 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 Director, Ozone Clean.

We would like to thank each one of our visitors, exhibitors, keynote speakers and LearnZone presenters. You are what makes the Expo what it has become – a vital tool in the business calendar.

Even in this digital and social media age, face to face is still the best way to create those long-lasting relationships, to learn what solutions are available to you and to understand how they will implement into your organisation.

We look forward to welcoming you on the 2nd October 2018 when our doors open once more.
