Get Inspired Southampton and New Forest 2024, in partnership with Southampton City Council, New Forest District Council and Barratt Developments PLC - Exhibit

Get Inspired Southampton and New Forest With Partners (1) (1)

We are delighted to announce that Get Inspired Southampton and New Forest, in partnership with Southampton City Council, New Forest District Council and Barratt Developments PLC, will be returning in 2024! Come and join the many other Southampton and New Forest businesses inspiring young people about the diversity of jobs available on their doorstep. By the age 15/16, over one-third of their career interests lie in just 10 occupations.

To overcome this, businesses need to come together to make the variety of occupations more visible for young people to aspire to. We need you to showcase the great work and job roles taking place in the area. We want to give 11 to 16 year-olds the opportunity to gain a real understanding of the broad range of exciting career paths that the diverse businesses in and around the area have to offer through interactive activities.

The benefits of attending are:

  • It is an exciting, fun, interactive event that showcases the work of employers and career opportunities.
  • It inspires young people to aspire to job roles in your industry – often young people don’t aspire to job roles because they don’t know they exist or what they involve.
  • Your organisation can help reduce future skills gaps by attending this event – research has shown it is important that young people are inspired by businesses from a young age.
  • This event is a proactive way for businesses to give back to your community and support the economic growth of the local area.

Exhibiting Costs

There is a cost to attend. The cost to exhibit is £250+VAT per event (unless exempt). Charities, uniformed public services and organisations with less than 10 staff and event partners and sponsors are exempt from payment.
