With the construction of Hinkley Point C now underway and with projects worth £50 billion to our economy over the next two decades starting to take shape, there are many opportunities for businesses.
Our 2017 annual conference is a great chance to hear the latest news, network with potential partners and find out more about openings for your business. With an international strand this year and co-hosted with South West Nuclear Hub, it will be a chance to find out how to connect to innovation and grow your business in the industry, locally and globally.
Day 1 - 20th September
As part of the international theme, our nuclear brokerage event is a chance to meet potential partners and see how your business can benefit in this sector on a face-to-face basis. Supported by Enterprise Europe Network these meetings are the perfect way to grow your partnerships. In the evening, we will be supporting new talent in the industry with a speed mentoring session followed by a pre-conference dinner.
Day 2 - 21st September
With a keynote from Paul Howarth, CEO of National Nuclear Laboratory, our annual conference will set the South West nuclear industry in a national and global context, followed by updates from Hinkley Point C and other projects around the South West.
