What conference partners said in 2020

“It was extremely valuable. We found it amazing. One of the best conferences we’ve ever been to and the fact it was in person played a big part in that for sure. We made a lot of contacts and the talks were fantastic.”

Can I just commend you on the amazing job you did pulling off such a large conference with so many exhibitors. It was my first time running a stand and was a large investment for my business but I was blown away with all your help and answering all my questions. I had such great experience meeting everyone and all my extra effort paid off we have 93 leads to follow up on time will tell if their is return on investment but I’m so grateful for the experience to date.”
