The Rushlight Show 2016 wil take place at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London on Thursday 28 January 2016. The Show, now in its 7th year, has over 100 cleantech companies of all stages of development represented by their senior management; investors and financiers; sustainability professionals from major corporates and key intermediaries all registered. This event, sponsored by Venner Shipley, Atkins and The Knowledge Transfer Network and with over 300 already registered, provides valuable opportunities to engage with and to announce your interest in the sector. It incorporates the following:
- An Exhibition of the latest innovations in cleantech, including a number of entrants of the Rushlight Awards, with over 40 organisations represented..
- The Funding Cleantech Conference, which covers the new £250,000 investment prize for the winner of the Future of the Smart Home competition backed by Ariadne Capital, grants, DECC’s innovation funding, London’s only dedicated cleantech incubator, Innovate UK funding and other aspects of funding cleantech companies, our new Crowdfunding Session, and a range of cleantech companies presenting their companies to expert panels of active cleantech investors.
- The Resourceful Conference, kindly supported by the KTN and in association with LCRN, which focuses on the development of maintenance and repair, reuse, sharing, renting, remanufacture and activities and collaborations in that area, with direct input from over 20 of the leading participants from local authorities, companies, waste operators, government departments, community schemes and investors.
- The Sustainable Solutions Market Panel, where cleantech companies present their products and services directly to a panel of leading sustainability and procurement representatives from Tesco, Interserve, Premier Farnell, Canary Wharf Group, Diocese of London, Guy’s & St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and Heathrow Airport Ltd.
