What our customers say about us

The most eagerly anticipated Summer Antiques Fair in the UK that regularly attracts the most important clientele
EAPIC exceeded all expectations. We were extremely impressed with the high-level professional people on the floor. A sleek event offering high quality interaction. Our experience has been so positive we want to come back even bigger next year
The European Gas Conference stands out for its high-profile attendance and in-depth analysis of the challenges our industry is currently facing. It is also one of the few international conferences which dedicates a specific focus on infrastructure, a key-matter when it comes to the future and sustainability of the natural gas business.
IRX is excellent; we’ve had some fantastic retailers, people who are coming here with real questions, a real need, and a real thirst to learn about how they can improve
Fantastic, enjoyable and educational event
The Baby Show has been great – there has been some fantastic offers including Vtech and Philips Avent. There’s so much choice and the excellent prices make it a brilliant day out.
EiG was really good. There were lots of relevant companies in attendance that were interested in our start up product and we received lots of good feedback from operators on the real potential use cases of our technology. I will definitely be back next year.
The quality of customers has been very good and we have seen our bigger customers here today. For us, it’s a very important show. The look of the show is fresh, spring-like and I love the vibrant colours!
This event has become the main European hub of the whole smart energy landscape.
Remains the “must do” event in the European power sector calendar, continuing to provide the leading forum for networking with peers from across Europe; as well as providing a platform for identifying key sector trends and the hottest new products and services from vendors big and small from across the globe to meet the needs of a sector in transformation.
