I would like to pass on my thanks for an extremely enjoyable and productive conference. From an exhibitors point of view the venue and location were ideal and the organisation first class.
The conference provided an invaluable opportunity for us to network with both potential clients and industry contacts and will prove beneficial in taking our product forward. The conference content also proved to be both insightful and informative.
Once again, thank you and we look forward to attending the conference again in 2013.

Just to chime in - thank you for having us there. I can honestly say this last week was one of the best and acted as a great source of inspiration.
I was also very impressed with the quality of each event and how smoothly they were all carried out. Hope to be able to attend many more in the future.
