Here’s some testimony from exhibitors at last year’s conference

“We really enjoyed the conference! We made some great contacts and saw a fair amount of business off the back of it. The managers were very enthusiastic about our product. It was very well run and we would love to attend again” Lauren Star from Fixxon

“It was a real pleasure to attend the event. I do not say this lightheartedly. As you can imagine I have attend many conferences both as a delegate and exhibitor, and my feedback is that this was the first conference where I truly believed the organisers cared about all the people attending and involved, and made it a very pleasant, valuable and special occasion!” Dr Paul Rinne, CEO, GripAble
