Just two weeks before the event takes place, HMTB organiser Becky Lodge said it has been a ‘virtual sell-out’, with only a few tickets left available.

Taking place at the Marriott Hotel, Portsmouth on May 22, guests will have the chance to sit with a number of professionals throughout the day and discuss ideas in designated time slots.

In the past, the event has seen firms win contracts in excess of £300,000.

Portsmouth City Council leader Donna Jones will open the event with a speech on ‘The Future of Portsmouth’.

Other guest speakers include the University of Portsmouth’s Faculty of Business and Law department, Uber, DMWR Architects, Turrem Data and G by Grant Thornton.
