KTN is supporting Smart Island Live on Isle of Wight on 11 April

An event focused on helping businesses boost the efficiency and growth of their organisation will take place on the Isle of Wight on 11 April.

Supported by a range of stakeholders, including KTN, the event will pay particular attention to environmentally-friendly choices and how advancing technology can play a part in business improvement.

Delegates can either start the day at 8am, with a complimentary Island Breakfast and networking session, or join at 9.15am. The fast-moving morning programme will help businesses to learn more about available business support, plus explore the impact on business of a range of environmental-related themes. These topics include transport, food, waste, renewables and buildings. In the afternoon, the focus switches to careers, technology and outlining the Island’s new digital landscape.

There are classroom state-of-the-art product demonstrations for the construction sector between 9.30am and 11.30am. There is also a Business Zone on site, delivering advice and specific tutorials to businesses during the course of the day.

The event is not just accessible to those on the Isle of Wight; good transport links from the UK mainland means others can easily attend.¬†¬†If you’re travelling from the mainland, our friends at Red Funnel will give you a foot passenger return ticket for just ¬£10 at the ferry terminal. ¬†All you have to do is show them your joining instructions at the ferry terminal in Southampton, grab your ¬£10 ticket and then head off onto the ferry to Cowes.
