The Eden Project team, who are behind bringing Eden to Morecambe Promenade, have confirmed their involvement at this year’s North Lancs Expo.
The team behind the North Lancs Expo are very pleased to announce that the Eden Project will be exhibiting at the North Lancs Expo 2019, held at Lancaster Brewery on Friday 20th September and Saturday 21st September.
Si Bellamy, OBE, Head of Eden Project International, will be chatting to exhibitors and visitors, as well as giving a talk on Saturday afternoon on the positive impact that Eden Morecambe will have on the whole district.
Besides, businesses will have a chance to register and express their interest in supporting the supply chain for Eden. Eden are looking for a supply chain that is at least 80% represented by local suppliers but not at the cost of quality.
Recently Eden Project Learning has signed a 25-year memorandum of understanding with Lancaster and Morecambe College to deliver specific Eden-focussed training for the local workforce. Courses begin this September.
Once completed in 2023, Eden Project North in Morecambe is expected to employ 500 people and attract a minimum of 750,000 visitors a year, bringing a significant boost to the local economy.
Vicky Lofthouse, Chief Executive Officer of Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce, says “It’s simply the icing on the cake to have the Eden Project at this year’s Expo. I, for one, can’t wait to hear from Si and will be sure to get a front-row seat for his talk on Saturday afternoon.
“The Chamber’s (organisers of the North Lancs Expo) role is clear when it comes to the Eden Project in Morecambe, and that’s ensuring through platforms like the Expo that Members and local businesses get the most out of this once in a lifetime opportunity.
“So, if you are considering exhibiting I suggest you book quickly as we have very limited spaces left and who doesn’t fancy rubbing shoulders with the single biggest game-changer this area will see in my lifetime.”
The North Lancashire Expo is a unique two-day event which sees hundreds of businesses and thousands of visitors collide on a platform to showcase our amazing North Lancashire. Friday is a business showcase with exhibitors, stands and talks with the Saturday being all about our community with a focus on skills and training.
North Lancashire is an amazing place. It has unique locations, warm, friendly people, and a rich, growing business community. We believe that it deserves a gateway to allow people and organisations to discover all of that in one place to get a taste of why North Lancashire is important. Now and in the future.
We do that by bringing all the stakeholders in the region together for two days of discovery and connection with industry, education, local government, and leisure & tourism.
The North Lancashire Expo is brought to you by Lancaster & District Chamber of Commerce in association with Lancaster City Council. The Expo is kindly sponsored by EDF Energy, Workshop Media, Nick Dagger Photography, Apparatus Marketing, SilverDoor Apartments, Lancashire Business View, Peterson (United Kingdom) Ltd, Lancaster & Morecambe College, Lancaster University and Treble 3.
It is being held on Friday 20th & Saturday 21st September 2019 @ The Expotorium Marquee, Lancaster Brewery, Lancaster Leisure Park, Wyresdale Road, Lancaster. From 10am – 4pm on both days.
