Growing the Innovation Business Opportunity - the Solent is Open, 7th March 2018, Isle of Wight

This event is open to all and organisations outside the Solent are warmly encouraged to attend alongside the indigenously based groups.

Sometimes, what you need as a technology business to grow is right in front of you, if only you knew it existed.

Innovate UK and KTN have been looking at the potential around the Solent and are seeing some interesting opportunities beginning to emerge. The Isle of Wight has often felt a bit disconnected from the hive of activity over the Solent but this has not stopped them from nurturing some interesting ideas.

And likewise, organisations including R&D centres around Bournemouth, Southampton and Portsmouth are on a keen trajectory for impacting innovation. They too are looking for partners to foster programmes that could maximise the economical impact.

It makes sense to marry up the capability and unpack what may be slowing up the relationships.

This event sets out with a simple objective: to give you the opportunity to showcase your thinking and forge collaborative partnerships that so far have been outside your field of vision. Importantly, you can also get first hand how the family of Innovate UK business support operations could take your new partners to new and impacting business opportunities.

Format: The day will be structured to set up a dialogue between those with challenges and others with solutions. The day will have a heavy focus on networking, giving you plenty of opportunity to meet new contacts and solve the missing pieces in your growth strategy. This will be fortified with the tools that Innovate UK, KTN, European Enterprise Network, the Local Enterprise Partnerships and local Business Growth programmes can provide to give you the best chance to achieve success.

Programme will also include a session on Accessing Private Equity and Investor Markets.

NEWS for Mainland delegates: A special Networking Red Funnel Ferry will be leaving Southampton at 7:15am. Delegates will enjoy a £10 foot passenger crossing to the Isle of Wight and receive breakfast. For details contact Bruce.Mclelland@ktn-uk.org.

Who should attend:

* Technology business and commercially orientated R&D centres that are engaged in new disruptive innovation landscapes
* Those who are challenge owners where new thinking is sought to provide additional solution avenues
* The event is open to all, and organisations outside the Solent are warmly encouraged to attend alongside the Solent-based groups.

This event, including catering and refreshments, is free to attend. A sponsored drinks reception will also accompany your registration.

Posidonia International Shipping Exhibition, 4th-8th June 2018, Athens

SMI will be taking organising both a UK Group stand and UK Showcase at Posidonia 2018.

Greek ship owners and operators are leading the world by controlling the world's largest commercial fleet making up some 20% of total world deadweight tonnage.

In mid-2017 there are 69 fleets under Greek control over 1 million DWT comprising of over 2,800 ships. Keeping this huge commercial armada in business requires Greek owners to spend upwards of US$ 4 billion per year just on repairs, drydocking, conversions, equipment upgrades and general maintenance.

The increasing demands of regulations have seen major investments by fleet operators in cutting-edge Nox/Sox scrubbers, ballast water management systems, plus navigation and other shipboard technology.

With modern second hand tonnage entering the world market, the Greeks are continually upgrading their fleets since they are in the main cash rich and taking the opportunity to buy quality tonnage at very keen prices. This tonnage should need maintaining, converting and upgrading work which means opportunities for the British supply chain.

The Society for Maritime Industries (SMI) is the group organiser fir the UK Group. There is no known DIT Trade Access Program grant support for this show and bidding for the 2018 shows will not be known until Feb/March 2018. Full details can be found at the following link:

SMI are also organising a UK showcase at Posidonia, which comprises a lightwall space, brochure rack, exhibitor pass, showguide and website entry. The showcase spaces will be on a first come first served basis.
