Previous visitors to the conference have found the event extremely useful; here are few of their comments:

“Listening to the speakers, who are often the people setting our standards, I always leave the conference with far more knowledge regarding our industry than when I arrived”

Steve Skivington – Sco Mac Catering Equipment

“It’s an excellent opportunity to learn from industry specialists.  Sitting in a room full of your peers and discovering common issues that are raised in Q&A sessions are really useful to take back and share with colleagues within your own business.”

Gary Mackness – ABDA Design
