New Scientist set for ExCel return

New Scientist Live returns to ExCel London in September.

The show, running over four days from 28 September, will feature six immersive zones covering Humans, Engineering, Technology, Earth and Cosmos. With 120 speakers, five stages and 60 experiences, it touches on all areas of human life.

Last year 22,467 people attended the launch event and already exhibitors such as BP, BT, BAE, Innovate UK and the European Space Agency have signed up to appear alongside key educational institutes like Goldsmiths, Imperial College London, UCL and Middlesex University this year.

Last year the exhibition hall saw some of the biggest names in engineering, pharmaceuticals and science showing off their latest cutting-edge ideas and products, letting people see, hear, touch, smell and taste the future.

Mike Sherrard, event director, said, ‘New Scientist Live’s launch in 2016 revolutionised the field of science communications, bringing the big ideas shaping our world to a large group of intelligent, curious and diverse group of people. We were privileged to open last year’s show with ESA astronaut Tim Peake, fresh from the International Space Station, and this year’s line-up promises to stimulate, surprise, challenge and amaze our visitors. Alongside these world-leading scientists, the five zones, and the VIP area, will mean people’s biggest challenge will be fitting everything in.’
