SPARKS Magazine runs seven annual regional events across the UK, where manufacturers are given the opportunity to present their products to college lecturers. These run alongside the SPARKS UK Electrical Apprentice of the Year competition in January and February.

For manufacturers this is a unique chance to engage with electrical lecturers, the brand ambassadors in the colleges. These events are used to run focus groups, product demonstrations or technical presentations.

For lecturers this is where you can find out about the latest products and services on the market, whilst at the same time gaining free CPD hours.

The dates and venues for 2018 are as follows:

  • North East – Newcastle College, Tuesday 16th January 2018
  • North West – Burnley College, Thursday 18th January 2018
