Energy 2012 Exhibitors
Exhibiting at The Military to Civilian Energy Event, is an excellent opportunity for your organisation to meet and interact with highly skilled and specialised ex-Services personnel. Each year, more than 20,000 individuals leave the Armed Forces. This figure is set to dramatically increase as the MoD plans to make 54,000 additional redundancies before the year 2015. With a skill shortage already in the energy sector, exhibitors at the event get the chance to take advantage of this pool of skills and talent.
The event will attract more than 400 former service personnel, each interested in starting a new career in the energy sector. We are looking for employers and training companies who are interested in exhibiting at the event, and engaging with the hundreds of potential new candidates.
For organisations interested in exhibiting at this event, please download the NOF Energy 2012 Booking form.
This year, more than 400 attendees from the Armed Forces community are expected at the event. To achieve the maximum turn out we will be promoting the event to our 10,000+ BFRS members as well as across a huge catchment area of local military communities through newsletters, local and military media and Garrison resettlement officers.
The exposure gained by exhibiting goes well beyond the event itself. A stand at the BFRS Virtual Career Fair is also included in all exhibitor packages, allowing you to compete with BFRS' 10,000 membership base. This is an online version of the event which is accessible by anyone, anywhere in the world and will provide you with online exposure.
We will be inviting journalists from local and national papers as well as specialist publications to attend and cover the event. If you choose to be an event sponsor, you will be at the heart of all media attention.
If you are looking to recruit highly skilled individuals, exhibiting at this event is an excellent opportunity to do so. Complete the booking form to secure your place. If you wish to contact us to discuss this further, please contact Joanne Leng, Director Business Development at NOF Energy.
