NICEIC and Elecsa unveil details for Live North

NICEIC and Elecsa are making their way back to Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool for this year’s Live North.

Electric vehicle advocate, Roger Atkins, is the keynote speaker for this year’s event, which takes place on Thursday, November 21.

After decades of working with combustion engines, Atkins changed tact 12 years ago to become an EV advocate. He runs the ‘Electrical Vehicles Outlook’ Consultancy and also shares an EV narrative as a ‘Top Voice’ on LinkedIn with over 250,000 followers.

He will start the day off with a session on electrical vehicles and explain how this rapidly growing sector, combined with the changes in the automotive market, can provide a lucrative business opportunity for electrical contractors.

Kevan Parker, Managing Director for NICEIC and Elecsa, says, “With over 30 years in the automotive industry, and 12 of them being an advocate for electric vehicles, Roger is the perfect keynote speaker for this year’s Live North event. His passion and enthusiasm will inspire our guests and make them aware of the wealth of opportunities available in this rapidly growing sector. We are delighted to have him at this year’s show.”

Darren Staniforth, Jake Green and other NICEIC and Elecsa technical experts will also be on hand to provide an overview of the latest changes within the industry. This year’s event will also include a focus on future technology, including EV charging, DC battery storage, and more.

Live North is a CPD accredited event, meaning that attendees can use learnings from the day as part of their ongoing professional development.

Attendees will also be able to chat with representatives from some of the biggest names in the industry in a packed exhibition area. Delegates will be able to access some great discounts from suppliers and sponsors, including Bosch, ESP, Scolmore and many more.

Tickets cost £29 plus VAT for NICEIC, Elecsa and ECA contractors, and £49 plus VAT for non-registered persons. Apprentice passes are available free of charge.
