Pitch 200 – the engineering competition with a difference, Bristol

About this event

Do you have a natural curiosity for how things work? Want to know more about how engineering is integrated into our daily lives? Or perhaps you have an aspiring engineer in your family? Then Pitch 200 is for you.

We're putting 9 of our members to the test to see how creative they can be when explaining what they love about civil engineering. See talented engineers from across the South West of England showcase their work in the most curious and unconventional way and explain what inspires them to contribute to our present and future Society.

The top entries selected by expert judges will now compete head to head with a 200 second presentation about their chosen engineering concept with no limitations to the props and methods they use.

The winner on the evening will need to impress not only you – but our panel of judges which will be chaired by Dave Harvey of BBC Points West Business Correspondent. The judging panel will also include John Froud (Atkins), Ann Metherall (Burges Salmon), Simon Dunn (Alun Griffiths) and Joanna Rothwell (Arup).

The ICE South West regional heat is part of the national Pitch 200 competition run by the Institution of Civil Engineers across the UK. The winner from each regional heat will compete in the Pitch 200 Grand Finale in November 2018.

This event is being supported by Burges Salmon.
