It’s commonly thought that advances in clean energy only present opportunities for those operating in the supply chain, but that’s simply not the case, says the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR).
The organisation, a not-for-profit trade body representing the East of England’s energy sector, says small businesses shouldn’t write themselves out of the narrative too soon, as there’s a wealth of opportunities to be had – and they’re all on our doorstep.
EEEGR is reaching out to the wider business community to demonstrate the potentially huge rewards for small, local businesses on the horizon of a clean energy revolution at its flagship event, SNS 2022 Energy Integrated in the East, which takes place on 25 and 26 May 2022 at the Norfolk Showground.
Simon Gray, Executive Director of Policy & External Affairs at EEEGR, said: “Small businesses often dismiss the energy industry as not being their target audience, perhaps thinking it’s best left to operators and supply chain companies. However, that’s just not the case; those companies operating within the industry need the support of everyday businesses, from solicitors and IT support through to marketing and catering.
"There’s a kaleidoscope of requirements within the industry, and our region is brimming with the talent to meet them.”
SNS 2022 Energy Integrated in the East is a hotly anticipated and nationally recognised event, hosting industry’s senior leaders and decision makers from across the region in one place.
Businesses will have the opportunity to speak with operators and supply chain companies in the event’s B2B networking meeting programme, Inn2POWER, a one-to-one meeting opportunity to pitch how their services can support the energy industry, at great benefit to their bottom line.
SNS 2022 is pleased to have event partners in the form of some of Europe’s leading operators including ScottishPower Renewables, Vattenfall, and Equinor as well as prominent organisations and projects both nationally and within the region including the Oil and Gas Authority, GENERATE, Sizewell C and Proeon Systems, the event is regarded highly within the UK’s energy industry.
More than 70 exhibitors and over 1,000 attendees are anticipated. Two-day tickets are available from the EEEGR website offering access to the conference and exhibition, as well as lunch, refreshments and drinks reception.
A separate conference dinner will also take place on Wednesday 25 May 2022 at the Norfolk Showground, with single or table tickets of 10 available. There are a limited number of sponsorship and exhibition opportunities remaining. Find more information at https://www.eeegr.com/events/sns2022/.
