Donate Not Waste is an initiative that takes things businesses throw away and gives them to charities, schools and play centres that need them. Any suitable waste items such as stationery, fabric and display materials will be donated where possible.
No waste to landfill – Waste that cannot be donated will be recycled or responsibly incinerated and turned into energy. Separate bins for different types of waste are provided throughout the venue.
The BDC donated furniture, such as exhibition stands that cannot be used anymore to LV Enterprise for their local project, Furniture Fix. Local unemployed people will clean, repair and customise them and sell them.
Cycle storage & electric charging points are available at the venue.
This event is made possible by sponsorship from organisations including pharmaceutical companies, med tech companies and service providers none of which have influenced the event content or the choice of speakers. Sessions delivered with input from these organisations are marked as such on the programme and a list of all sponsors can be found here.
