The British Interactive Group is pleased to announce that the BIG Event 2006 will be held at The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester over two and half days of 27-28-29 July 2006.


The 2005 Event was a fantastic experience for delegates at the Centre for Life in Newcastle, with sessions in both the modern conference facilities and events and shows live on the exhibition floor. We have used the best elements of previous conferences and feedback from delegates to start planning the event for 2006.


The British Interactive Group (BIG) is an organisation for individuals involved in all aspects of hands-on exhibitions and activities. BIG aims to improve understanding of the potential of hands-on and the role it can play in may contexts, to encourage high professional standards and act as a voice for all people working with interactivity.

Each year BIG holds its annual conference (The BIG Event) with delegates from across the UK, Europe and worldwide. The BIG Event is relevant not only for people running science centres and museums, but for artists, presenters, archaeologists, educators, students, front of house staff, evaluators and anyone involved in interactive communication whatever their field.


More information will follow and will shortly be available at www.big.uk.com
