Big Eco Show comes to Newcastle

The Big Eco Show 2013
Businesses interested in the low-carbon economy can find out more at the Big Eco Show in Newcastle on 18th April 2013.

The Show, held at the Centre for Life in Newcastle city centre, will bring together and showcase businesses from across the region operating in the low-carbon and climate resilient economy. It will focus on how businesses can grow, thrive and build their resilience within the green economy.

It is being organised by Daisy Green Media & Events and ClimateNE following the overwhelming success of the region’s first ever Big Eco Show, which was last September in Sunderland.

Nicola Alexander, from Daisy Green, said: “We’re very excited about holding the second Big Eco Show; the first one saw exhibitor stands selling out within the first couple of weeks and nearly 400 businesses attended – double the number we anticipated. There is a clear need to hold these Shows. Those who came along last time told me that they had found it immensely valuable and had left with lots of contacts to do business with and plenty of ideas and inspiration.”

The day-long event will include an exhibition, key note speakers, networking sessions and workshops.

Jennifer Atkinson, ClimateNE, said: “The Big Eco Show is a fantastic way to showcase the rapidly growing number of green businesses here in North East England while providing advice, information and inspiration for others. Ultimately, the Show is the place to be for those wishing to gain inspiration and ideas around the green commercial opportunities to assist business growth, improve resilience to the impacts of climate change, and to reduce costs by cutting emissions.”

Notes for editors:


The first Big Eco Show took place on Wednesday 19th September 2012 at the Stadium of Light, Sunderland. Nearly 400 businesses attended the day which featured over 40 exhibitors, nine speakers, a debate and electric vehicle test drives. The day aimed to showcase and celebrate North East businesses in the low-carbon and climate-resilient economy and will provide inspiration, information and advice for those wanting to take steps to become more green and eco-friendly.


Daisy Green Media and Events ( was launched four years ago and has a sister consumer website:

At heart, the Daisy Green Media and Events team are a bunch of very normal women who, although environmentally conscious, have chosen to change and adapt their lives rather than compromise everything they love.

Proud to be a leading ethical business based in the North East, their desire to share good practice, work with other inspirational businesses and deliver green love around the North East led them to organise the first Big Eco Show with partner Climate NE.


ClimateNE is the climate change partnership for North East England. We bring together a wide range of organisations from the private and public sector, committed to increasing resilience to severe weather events and the changing climate here in the North East. We also work closely with government and other organisations on this agenda on a national and international basis. Visit the website at:

ClimateNE will also be hosting their popular networking event ConnectFriday at The Big Eco Show. ConnectFriday is at free and informal gathering for like-minded businesses to meet and see how they can share information and intelligence on the green, climate resilient and low-carbon agenda.
