Or why not hire a private meeting space to get deals done?

Be Seen

It's tough to be heard above the noise. We can help you do it.

Whether it’s in the conference room, on delegate badges or lanyards, bags, the conference networking app, the Technical Site Tour, the WiFi or via our water bottles, Commodore Dinner, the Welcome Reception or the Exhibition Networking Drinks , we’ll make it work for you. Let us know your ideas too! 

If you’re bringing a new product to market, a space within the exhibition is a fantastic way to demo your service to your prime audience.
