Can you give us some tips to take the best out of visiting this event?
With over 250 suppliers on hand to give advice and product demonstrations, and nearly 90 individual conference sessions taking place over two days, the best tip is to plan and prepare. Our research shows that visitors spend between five and six hours at the show - almost a full working day - so being prepared is the best way to ensure they have the most productive experience. Additionally, visitors accepted on to the hosted buyer programme will have access to an online diary system allowing them to make appointments in advance with suppliers who meet their precise business needs.
Lastly, can you give us some participation results from the last edition?

Our research found that 96 per cent of visitors not only felt the show was time well spent out of the office, but enjoyed their experience, too. Visitors also scored the event 3.9/5 when asked about its importance and 4.2/5 for overall satisfaction.
