A new green products show has been branded a success by organisers after attracting 4,000 visitors to its debut.
 
The inaugural Eco Technology Show at the Amex Community Stadium in Brighton took place on 15 and 16 June and featured 100 exhibitors. Highlightsover the two days included a transport zone, which showcased a range of the latest electric cars (worth over £1 million) including the emission free Lightning Car and ultra-slick Tesla Electric sports-car.
 
New products were also launched including the grow-your-own oyster mushroom pack from the Espresso Mushroom Company, which recycles disused coffee granules from coffee shops and uses them as a breeding ground for the mushrooms.
 
“We’re delighted with the success and feedback from exhibitors and visitors to the south east’s very first Eco Technology Show,” said the show’s commercial director Nicola Gunstone.
 
“Local homeowners learnt how to reduce their carbon footprint and live in a more sustainable way, and business owners picked up tips on creating more environmentally friendly business practices.
 
“We will definitely be back next year with a bigger show with more features for visitors to enjoy.”
 
Running alongside the exhibition was new trade event Smart Business Conference, which investigated sustainable growth opportunities for the private and public sectors and featured debates from MPs from all lead parties including Caroline Lucas (Green), Greg Barker (Conservative) and energy minister Norman Baker (Lib Dems).
 
The Eco Technology Show 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.
