ScottishPower made a big impression with their stand at The Big Bang North West 2015 and after seeing how inspiring the event was, they were keen to reach out to more young people in 2016. Our new impressive Show Stage at Liverpool Exhibition Centre was the perfect way for ScottishPower to invest in their goal and WOW, it was amazing!
