Visit the Big Eco Show

Daisy Green Media & Events and Climate North East invite you to join them and their partners, Camira Fabrics, the North East FSB and the National Housing Federation at their Big Eco Show, on 17 October, Stadium of Light, Sunderland.

 

The theme of this, the region's third dedicated Big Eco Show, is Connections, Conversations and Collaborations and aims to showcase the very best of the North East business community who demonstrate that the 'green agenda' really is for all.

 

The exhibition will showcase businesses from all key sectors and provide inspiration for those who already adopt green principles, those who are greenish and those who just want to know how and why to start.
