South West England VA of the Year 2017

UK VA awards to be hosted at the Region’s largest Business Event

As part of the UK VA awards national programme, we are heading over to Ashton Gate Stadium on Wednesday 11th October to present 2 Awards for the South West Region,

We’ll be joining three of the world’s most innovative brands – Facebook, Google and TEDx – who, like our Winners - are taking to the main stage in The Production People Theatre at the South West’s largest business exhibition. The 6th Business Showcase South West is taking place again at the new Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol from 10.00am-4.00pm.

The free-to-attend event is welcoming Facebook who are delivering a Keynote Speech and Workshop for business – believed to be a first for the South West Region. Google are offering two Digital Garage Workshops on social media for businesses and google analytics, whilst TEDxBristol – the largest TEDx event in the UK – are previewing their forthcoming event’s speaker line-up and delivering a special talk in the Trinity Mirror Seminar Zone.

Over 200 exhibitors from across the region are preparing to meet with an expected 3000 attendees. First West of England are running a comprehensive bus service from Temple Meads station in Bristol and shuttles around the city, helping to keep the Business Showcase free to travel to whilst the official car parks are free to use.

This time Worldpay & NatWest, Bristol Waste and West of England Growth Hub have all sponsored the event again, whilst corporate escape game firm CityMazes has joined the line-up with Talent International, Blackstar Solutions and Weston College sponsoring for the first time.

Other Keynote Speakers include the Tim Bowles, the new Metro Mayor for the West of England, chair of the Institute of Economic Development, Bev Hurley CBE and 18-year old business sensation Ben Towers, who has already merged a company and is publicly endorsed by Sir Richard Branson.
