FREE Tickets & Travel: Take 16+ students to the NextGen Fest – Fun events & A ROYAL VISIT!
WOW! 2,000 young people, 9 inspirational, fun events and a ROYAL VISIT!
The International Business Festival takes place at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool during the month of June. The festival involves 30,000 industry professionals and 200 world-class speakers taking part in 55 major events.
You and your students can experience the sights and sounds of this major international event, browsing the range of attractions of the festival floor and getting involved with the youth-specific activities offered via the NextGen Fest, in association with HSBC.
The festival is open on each of the days from 09:00-17:00 and whilst we realise it’s incredibly short notice, and it’s the exam period and you’re all ridiculously busy already… if you’re interested, willing and able to take any of your 16+ students to experience the festival, All About STEM is pleased to be able to provide free tickets, along with the offer of travel cost support. (School/college will need to pay upfront and then provide invoices to All About STEM for recompense).
Click the links below to visit our online booking pages. This will enable you to book a school place on your day of choice.
A member of the All About STEM team will then get in touch to discuss the number of attendee tickets you require. Individual tickets, providing access to the Festival on your day of choice, will then be emailed directly to you.
