Loan sharks just after money
Sad that when our start up business had to pull out since we ceased trading they forced a hefty cancellation fee on us that had to come right from the founder's pockets. No heart or understanding of our position. Really sad what financial position it has left us in.

Attended for the first time
Well organized but could have been better...I was comparing it to the other shows I have attended at Excel. The shows at excel generally are far more superior to other venues.I am sure, it will only get better....

First time at this event.
Great space, but not enough foot fall, it was a poor day with the weather but did get a good contact which we are working with now.

One visit to business show helped me to acquire 3 new clients and find two new suppliers
Attending business show is very effective, because in one morning of afternoon you get to meet hundreds of potential partners, suppliers, and clients. Instead of wasting time on emails, you just approach their stand, say hi, hear what they offer, and in most of the cases you even get some special deal because of business show!

Disappointingly quiet
This was my first time attending, but my colleague had been to previous events and assured me they were busy. I've been to the Digital Marketing Show at Olympia a couple of times, and seen how busy that was. By comparison, this event was quiet. We are also surprised that no one from the organising team made any contact with us during the first day. Someone did make contact the second day, but it felt half-hearted. They also told us the May event (that we were attending) would probably be canned in future - because it wasn't as busy as the November version. We learned lots about attending a show. But we'll need some persuading to consider going back.

This was my first time at the business show
It was great to see the amazing organisation and to take part in my first ever speed networking. I had many conversations which has led to new business opportunities. I will definitely be back next year

A blended experience!
The Business Show 2018 hosted a bevy of products—from different industries and verticals. It gave us an opportunity to connect with a varied crowd, understand unique business requirements, and pitch our applications to a broader section of audience! But, yeah, the audience set was a little generic/naive—so explaining about 'cloud-based business' and 'online business applications' was a challenge. Overall, a good experience for us! Thanks a lot.

Second to none for business opportunites
A very qualitative show in terms of business opportunities for companies operating in the SME space. It's a massive event, we had some nice conversations and closed a few deals off the back of it.
