Exhibition Zones

Discover the feature zones and how they can aid your business

The six zones will give delegates the opportunity to explore key areas of interest whilst offering further information, guidance and inspiration for their businesses.

Tomorrow's Workforce Zone

Supported by the Careers and Enterprise Company, visitors to this zone will be able to find out more about opportunities to help students as they prepare for the world of work. Careers leads from a number of Kent schools will be on hand to gather feedback from the business community around their requirements from young people looking to move into employment and to share details of how their students can help employers by sharing their experience and perspectives – of both the workplace and how the businesses engage with younger generations. Also on hand will be a group of volunteer Enterprise Advisors who will explain to visitors how they help bridge the gap between the worlds of business and education, and the rewards they gain.

Start Up & Micro Business Zones

We understand that not every company has the resources to provide enough staff to exhibit at a business event. That's why we have created The Micro Business Zone – perfect for companies who may only have 1 or 2 employees, but still lots to offer!

The Start Up Zone is for especially designed for companies just starting out in the big wide world of Business! We offer slightly smaller (and therefore cost effective) exhibition stands for Start-Up companies (up to 2 years old) to begin their networking event journey with Business Vision LIVE. We provide you with just enough space to get started and launch your business and branding to the visitors and exhibitors of our event.

Low Carbon Kent Zone

Discover how low carbon goods and services can benefit your business

Through the Low Carbon Kent network, KCC sponsors this Zone to host businesses offering green services and show how we can help reduce your costs and overheads as well as increase your reputation and competitiveness.

The low carbon sector is constantly innovating and changing and its estimated value to the Kent economy is believed to be around £1 billion.

Come visit us in the centre of the zone to find out about grants up to £10,000 on offer through LoCASE, support if you wish to enter or work in the offshore wind sector and free support on offer for all SMEs.
