The trade show is dead.

How do we know?

We organised them for 25 years and they yield little for attendees other than a plethora of business cards with a sales conversion rate of less than 10%; it’s a great business model for event organisers, but not great for you.

We thought…

Why waste endless hours and shoe leather visiting stands to collect business cards and free pens? Especially when you have sales targets to reach!

Wouldn’t you rather…

Be able to sit in front of decision makers from procurement that want to engage with you?

Actually win a sale or contract. Meet really great suppliers?

Wouldn’t you like your sales team to attend an event that reduces the sales life cycle by up to a half?

Meet the people that matter; rather than a promotional person or the apprentice that’s covering the stand?

Bye bye trade shows!

PLEASE NOTE: We do not accept ticket purchases on the day of the event. All tickets must be bought in advance in order to attend.


We are the only event in Hampshire that has sold out over four weeks before the event for the last three years running.
