The curated event will run from 9.00-1.00. Refreshments will be served throughout the day and the event will finish at 1.00 with lunch and networking until 3.00.

The event is taking place in an active factory; health and safety is therefore our utmost priority. We are making the event as COVID secure as possible, as such face coverings will be mandatory when walking around the site, but not when seated. Seating will be socially distanced, with the main event space well ventilated.

ITM Power is located next to Meadowhall and the M1, but parking is limited. Parking places are bookable when you register your place, but we strongly encourage delegates to consider their travel to the event. The nearest tram stop is a 5 minute walk away, Meadowhall train station 15 mins, and the 95 bus stops directly outside our factory.

We look forward to welcoming you to Bessemer Park to celebrate South Yorkshire’s decarbonisation efforts.
