Getting here

Exciting new venue!

BP2019 is returning to its ‘traditional home’ at the Yorkshire Event Centre on the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate where a £12M+ investment means the venue now offers two large, directly inter-connected, state-of-the-art exhibition halls and plenty of space for outdoor exhibits, as well as great new seminar and catering facilities.

Come for both days!

There’s so much to see, why not come for both days.
