It's a good opportunity to get up close and personal with exhibitors, and to take part in workshops and conference sessions which help gather ideas that could work in your business.Beth Bethell, IT Director, St Ives.
I found the event very interesting and wished I had set a side two days as opposed to half a day. I enjoyed the event and had some good meetings. I wish I had planned myself better and attended on both days and attended more of the workshops. I liked the set up and layout as it was a lot more intimate than other events I have attended. I think the workshops and conferences are important as I feel we should all be talking with each other and sharing ideas in order to move this industry forwards, in spite of all the hurdles we face.Fenton Smith, Managing Director, Boss Print Ltd.
Happy to support new events that keep print alive and kickingBarry Pearson, Project and Product Manager, Nitecrest.
