Smart Island Live will take place on Thursday 11th April 2019 at the new CECAMM building in Whippingham, East Cowes. Entry is FREE and there is an option of a free breakfast networking event at 8am to start the day, featuring tasty Island produce.

The event is aimed at businesses and innovators. If you’ve ever been to a trade show or expo style event, you’ll have a general idea of the format for the day.

At it’s core though, Smart Island Live 2019 is aiming a lot higher than a simple industry event.

Out vision is to enable businesses to reduce their overheads and grow in a smart and sustainable way using a mixture of sustainable technology, smart planning and a network of like minded supporters.

We want to create a better Island to live and work on, and by launching Smart Island Live, we’re creating a platform where businesses can get together, network, learn and come together to improve our community.

The event is being organised by Future Isle of Wight – A Community Interest Company.

We’re working with a number of key partners to help make the event a reality.

The event has Isle Of Wight Council support, and Innovate UK (including EEN and KTN) are helping to host the event.

Other supporters and partners include Dimplex, British LED, the Isle Of Wight College and CECAMM.

Many Island businesses will be demonstrating and exhibiting, and you’ll get the chance to listen to presentations from industry leaders and innovators.

Find out about available business support, through advice and presentations in our Business Zone.

Understand better the impact on business of a range of environamental themes and the opportunites that new technology provides.

In the afternoon, the focus switches to careers, Technology & Digital.

All the sessions will be packed with relevant information and have an interactive feel, so you can find out what you really want to know.

There will be classroom presentations and CPD to learn about new technologies as well as regulations for the contruction industry.
