YGN South West Exhibition and Networking Event 

The YGN South West Exhibition and Networking Event will be hosted by Burges Salmon at their Bristol office on 3 May 2018.

Following on from the success of the last few years, this event promises to be another fantastic afternoon and evening and will be open to all (including YGN members, non-members and senior delegates). The event will be free to attend for both delegates and exhibitors but spaces may be limited so please register your interest early.

Attendees will be invited to arrive from around 4pm. There will be a welcome speech at around 4.30pm, after which attendees will be free to network over drinks and nibbles and speak to many of the companies and representatives from across the industry who will be exhibiting and distributing merchandise.

The event will provide an excellent opportunity for YGN members and non-members to find out more about companies working in the nuclear sector, make new contacts, catch up with old contacts, discuss opportunities for collaboration, and increase awareness of some of the career opportunities on offer within the industry.

Whilst the list of this year’s list of exhibitors cannot be finalised yet, previous exhibitors have included: NI/YGN, EDF, Jacobs, NNL, Horizon Nuclear Power, Burges Salmon, Areva and QinetiQ, to name but a few.
