“The Expo was really good for us. Right from the very start we picked up a possibility to supply a building, and we’ve had some really positive leads from some nice local companies. The variety of businesses attending was very good. There were lots of larger companies, lots of start-up companies and some great opportunities for us to supply services to them.”
Mark Kemp, Managing Director, Futures Supplies and Support Services.
“It’s gone really well today – we have been very, very busy. We spoke to a lot of employers and individuals looking to do training, which is what we were here for. We attend the Expo every year and it has been good to come to the Pop Up. I think the venue and different layout worked well.”
Anne O’Hara, Marketing and Social Media Officer with Jace Training.
“The Expo was great - I came with no expectations and have been quite overwhelmed by how busy I have been. I’ve had a lot of people coming to the stall and the other stall holders have been supportive. I now have a whole lot of business cards, which are all potential leads.”
Tamsin Abiola, Smoove UK.

“Business is all about connecting and the Expo has been a great opportunity to network with the local business community, meet new people and re-connect with others. My colleague delivered a seminar session on free social media tools for businesses which was very well attended.”
