  • Joint exhibition and presentation area – A place for the University, companies and stakeholders to ‘showcase’ research, products and services, with exhibits and both informal and formal presentations
  • Networking between those looking for business ideas or support and those who can provide it, including individuals, academics and entrepreneurs trying to develop commercial ideas or extend their business network.
