The first Eco Technology Show has outlined details of its feature and speaker line-up ahead of its launch at Brighton’s new AMEX Stadium.
 
The combined consumer and trade show will debut on 15-16 June and aims to showcase technologies that encourage sustainable and energy efficiency, both in the home and commercially. The event was created by commercial director Nicola Gunstone and co-founder Michael Yeoman, who are assisted by event director Bill Mauseth, sales manager Rip Gill and sales executive Jim Mitchell.
 
“The aim is to raise awareness of environmental issues and encourage people to embrace new developments and commit to using renewable energy to save money on their household bills,” said Yeoman, who is also heavily involved within the sustainable sector around Sussex and the south of England.

The event has gained the backing of the local council and has been devised with the assistance of an advisory board. This includes Brighton and Hove City Council’s Geoff Raw and Cheryl Finella, Heath Sustainable Design’s Oliver Heath, Brighton Energy Co-op programme director Damian Tow, University of Brighton environment business development manager Zoe Osmond and Brighton and Hove Chamber of Commerce’s Sarah Springford.
 
The Eco Technology Show will include three main zones focused on build, energy and home, transport, and information, education and lifestyle. Free seminars will also be on offer to visitors covering renewable energy, water and waste efficiencies, government incentives and strategies such as the Green Deal, running more efficient businesses and other energy-based technologies.
 
Outside the stadium, the event organiser will hold a local sustainable food and drinks market, and give visitors the opportunity to test out new e-bikes and trikes on a dedicated track. Low-carbon and electric vehicles worth £1m will be on display.
 
A separate paid-for trade conference, the Smart Business Conference, will run for one day alongside the main event.
 
The organiser expects at least 100 exhibitors and attendees ranging from policy makers to business owners, buyers, subject specialists and the general public.
 
“Tickets to the Eco Technology Show are selling fast as it promises to be a truly entertaining, educational and fun day out for all the family interested in making their home and lives more sustainable,” Gunstone said.
 
“From checking out the latest and fastest electric cars and testing out e-scooters to buying and eating locally sourced sustainable food in the local food market and listening to the MPs and green leaders with the latest insight on the Green Deal, the show offers something for everyone.”
 
AMEX Stadium recently hosted the Brighton BabyExpo, which attracted 4,500 people and has since sparked plans for a second show in 2012.
