Grass Roots appointed to deliver 'The Big Bang Fair' for next three yearsFollowing the success of the UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair, known as ‘The Big Bang Fair’ at the NEC, Birmingham in March, Grass Roots has been appointed to manage the visitor registration and live production processes for a further three years.
The Big Bang show is the UK’s biggest celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers, aimed at exciting young people about future career choices and sustain and grow vital skill-levels within the country’s STEM community. Around 56,000 visitors, including 800 schools, came to this year’s show which was delivered by over 170 organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors. Led by EngineeringUK in partnership with the British Science Association, the Institute of Physics, the Science Council, the Royal Academy of Engineering and Young Engineers, the event is supported by The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as well as numerous sponsors from industry.
Event Director Jeremy Buckle commented: “We’re delighted to continue our partnership with Grass Roots as we continue to grow and develop The Big Bang Fair over the next three years. From a client’s perspective I have a high comfort level with their ability to manage a complex registration matrix, and have been impressed by the innovation and high quality of production that they have brought to the show”.
Giselle Ripken, Managing Director of Grass Roots Delegate Management Services is also looking forward to building on the success of previous years: “It’s hard to think of a more rewarding show to be involved with. We are helping to open the eyes of young people to career opportunities in STEM community and that is immensely satisfying. This event continues to push our developers to innovate with our technology solutions to provide seamless attendee management and reporting”.
