Martin Dewhirst, No-4 Media & Events
‘We were really impressed with the Conference Expo contribution to our event. The pre-event support from Zoe was excellent and the flexibility offered in terms of deadlines was very helpful. On site, the build team created a uniform look that enhanced the quality of our event, and sponsors were delighted that they did not need to bring, construct and dismantle their own stands. The build process was completed in good time and last minute requests to move a few things around were met with a positive approach and were delivered as requested. The stands were dismantled discreetly and efficiently at the end of the day without compromising our delegates and sponsors in any way. We would recommend the Conference Expo service to anyone running a similar event.’
Jane Longhurst, Chief Executive, MIA
“We’re now working with Conference Expo for the second year in succession, to deliver the AIM Pavilion for our members at Confex, again very professional in their approach and delivery, while ensuring our members were looked after and received a personal service both prior to the event liaising directly and then also onsite assisting with their set up. Our members loved the fact they could turn up on the morning of the first day of the show without any set up worries or hassle, plus the enhanced presentation of their individual brands help deliver value from their participation.”
Damian Norman, Managing Director, Telegraph Events
Our partnership with Conference Expo, started with the brief to create a prescribed format, but premium event. We were aware of Conference Expo’s unique offering and considering its use in our B2B conferences. We’d also experienced the parent company, Nimlok’s great work for some of our exhibitors at our other events, so new that if we could combine the Conference Expo format with aspects of the creative and more custom capability used in their mainstream stand business, that they could be the ideal partner.
We were right, they instantly understood what we were trying to achieve and considered every aspect from that of the practical and commercial, to understanding our exhibitors and the fantastic experience we wanted to create for our visitors.
The Conference Expo team arrived on mass for the first site survey involving from day one the designer, exhibition co-ordinator, lead builder and Project Manager each adding confidence and valuable perspectives to our exciting plans. We felt reassured at every step including a valuable pre build in their production facility that enabled us to test our ideas.
The end result was a stunning stand package built, on time,with no hidden charges or surprises. The onsite team were fantastic and communication with the Conference Expo team was great. They became an integral part of our team taking on the additional role of managing our exhibitors from the time they signed up.
We’re already looking forward to working with the Conference Expo team on the next edition of RC which will grow on what has been one of our most successful launches ever.
Ben Mutton, Sales Manager, Bournemouth International Centre/Bournemouth Pavilion
“I was very impressed with the layout/look of the stand and felt it was good value for money. The uniform style is very professional. The set up is welcoming and encourages people to visit. The AV accessories are easy to use, all I needed to do was plug in my iPad and I had a rolling slideshow on my plasma. This ‘moving’ element really caught the attention of the visitors. The lockable storage area was a big plus and it was a particularly convenient solution as I came by train and was on my own.”
Jade Harrison, Business Development Executive, The Mermaid Conference & Events Centre
“Conference Expo looks visually appealing. It was the perfect backdrop for engaging with clients. It had everything we needed and the storage was great. Organising a stand is quite stressful so this alleviated a lot of the pressure as we knew we only needed to bring our promotional materials and everything else would be taken care of.”
Maugie Lyons, Director of Marketing & Sales, The Lensbury
“Our stand at Confex was open and inviting and it was useful having plug and play digital media. I found it hassle free, turning up at the event that morning with everything set up and ready to go, with no lifting involved at all!”
Claire Wormsley, Managing Director, The Graduate Conference Academy
“Conference Expo produced our exhibition stand for the conference summit 2013, they were extremely professional and the stand looked excellent. Our brand presence was maximised with the large fabric backdrop and the whole solution was incredibly convenient.”
Nathan Gamble, Online Marketing Assistant, Warwick Conferences
“Our stand at Confex was impressive and the graphic area really enhanced our brand presence compared with the traditional pop ups and banners we’d used previously. The digital media we had as part of the package was very easy to use and made a big impact on a small display area. Overall it was really convenient. We didn’t have the hassle of sourcing and bringing any kit, so could just turn up on the day. After the event we had the luxury of it being dismantled for us.”
Peter Komorník, CEO, Sli.do
“We found Conference Expo a great value solution for us. It was incredibly convenient, professionally set up and provided excellent value for money as it was not expensive at all. We were very satisfied with how our stand looked and it enabled us to communicate our message at the Conference Summit very effectively.”
Bethany Allen, Business Development, Procom Connections Ltd
“As an exhibiting sponsor at the Conference Summit we were really pleased with our stand from Conference Expo. It gave us a fantastic visual presence and we could really see how superior it looked compared to the banners and pop-ups in the room. Apart from achieving better brand exposure during the event, a main advantage for us was the fact that we didn’t have to worry about assembling or dismantling the stand as this was all done for us. We arrived on site with everything in situ and simply walked away at the end of the conference, what could be better!”
Dominic Johnson, Managing Director, Miramedia
“We were delighted with our Conference Expo stand at the Conference Summit in December. It occupied our entire exhibiting space and apart from looking slick and neat, was visually very strong. I was able to attend the event without my car – which is very handy for central London, put my laptop on the counter and my coat in the lockable cupboard and started meeting people. When it came to closing, I just put my coat back on and jumped on a train! All in all I found it hassle free and very good value for money. Stand, Lighting, Power, all included. The onsite team provided an excellent service and were very helpful so my mind was instantly put at ease and I could really focus on the main objective of generating leads.”
