Visiting, Times & Directions

WHY SHOULD YOU VISIT?

You’ll be able to engage with experts and consultants, harvesting advice on what your could and should be doing.

Network with your peers, find out what their plans are and share ideas. There’s a lovely quote attributed to George Bernard Shaw: If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples, we still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange ideas, we each have two ideas.

Talk to the people and organizations on the exhibition stands, who can help you deliver your planned solutions with the latest equipment, technology, services and knowledge.

You’ll be able to talk to a wide rang of suppliers and expert advisers that would normally take you months to get around, trade shows are the most productive use of your time. Especially if you are thinking of changing or looking for a new supplier.

It’s one or two days out of your year that could continue to pay dividends for months and even years to come, whilst making you more effective, efficient and possibly even save you money.

Visitor registration will be live nearer the time.

Entry includes FREE access to all the CPD accredited seminars.

FREE parking.
