At the show opening yesterday, Mr Lancaster said: “With the endorsement that MK has one of the fastest growing economies in the UK, it’s only right that we encourage further growth and demonstrate that the future has a wealth of opportunities for our young people.”

It was an impressive start to the two day event at arena:mk with 3,000 schools were invited to share in the wealth of opportunities available.

More than 16,000 young people are expected to visit during the two-day event which ends tonight.
