“I found the event a great networking opportunity to meet industrial professionals from different backgrounds with different products.”

Kat Clarke, Wing Manufacturing Engineer, Airbus

“I thought the system was well setup and easy to use. A great way to get some of the introductory bits out of the way which really helps when you are trying to maximise the amount of useful conversations you have at a show. We felt it was a very productive two days"

Robert Dinsmore, Sales Manager, InVMA

“Great facility to have, I had some very useful meetings there, which look to have had positive outcomes. Extremely friendly and helpful welcome desk who were great when meetings went awry due to me being late and meetings being rearranged.”
