About Exhibiting

The BIG Futures Show returns for the fifth year on Tuesday 28th April 2020. The
Show is the largest employability and skills event in the area and is aimed at students
(aged 14+) from across East Sussex as well as parents and anyone looking for work or
training. The show brings employers and educators face to face with tomorrow’s
workforce at a time when they are making big decisions about their futures
Student visitors have to decide what to do next in a year or so. They will be looking for
jobs that they would like to do and employers that they want to work for. They will be
asking about what qualifications they need and how do they achieve them? Do they look
for an apprenticeship and/or do they go onto higher education and enter the workplace
as a graduate?
BFS 2020 provides a unique opportunity for you to reach out and contribute to the
development of the workforce of the future, to influence its direction and to gain exposure
to it. The show is organised by Eastbourne Education Business Partnership in
association with Eastbourne Borough Council and sponsoring partners. Some 100+
organisations are expected to attend providing both an interactive and inspirational
experience for visitors. Student visitors from schools will benefit from additional
