BIG event 2023
The BIG Event is back!
Thinktank, Birmingham, UK
26-28 July 2023
Wed 26 July: Registration from 12 noon; sessions 1pm-5:30pm
The BIG Event is a three day get-together every summer to share skills and experiences, develop professional links and keep up-to-date with the STEM engagement field. This is the place to hone your skills and recharge your professional batteries, pick up great ideas and show off your talent to your peers.
It provides an unmissable opportunity to squeeze the skills and ideas out of all the STEM engagement people you can in a short space of time. It’s like power juice for STEM communicators.
The content for the BIG Event is created by the members. And the people who say they get the most out of it are the people who contribute the content. Members can login to view last few years' worth of Programmes , or you can have a look at the Proposals website to see previous programmes and sessions by clicking Here.
Your registration to the BIG Event entitles you to a free 12-month membership to BIG, with all its benefits. Your membership pack will be given to you when you check into the conference.
