The Big Bang Fair 2015


The Big Bang Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK, showing young people how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there with the right experience and qualifications.

The Big Bang Fair also offers a platform for the finals of the National Science+ Engineering Competition (NSEC), rewarding students who have achieved excellence in a science, technology, engineering or maths project.


Over the course of the 10-month planning process, fresh designed a clear visitor management plan by working closely with the NEC and The Big Bang team, implementing a clear and detailed operations plan.

We also aligned all our well-established systems and processes to produce an efficient procedure plan with H&S, catering, cleaning, security, traffic management and the volunteer team. This all came to fruition onsite with the successful delivery of all responsibilities and creative output.


fresh managed all the exhibition design and services for over 35,000 square metres of show floor, including designing and producing the 1,500 capacity Big Bang Stage, which hosted two spectacular headline shows and the final of the National Science + Engineering Competition.

There were also three 400 capacity mini theatres hosting eleven additional shows, and the Supporters’ Dinner hosting over 400 VIP guests and sponsors, as well as capturing the entire event on film.

95% of adult visitors to the Fair rated it very good or good, which was an increase in ratings from previous years.

9 in 10 of all young people attending the Fair thought it was very or quite enjoyable – quite an achievement in the focused age bracket.

The event was a huge success with improvements across the board from previous years including increased attendance figures and improved satisfaction and feedback.

Let's join-up and see how we can help you with your next project.
