"I would recommend this show to and Facilities Managers as it is very
informative and you can learn so much about various services and business
needs. The seminars are very interesting and give you lots of good ideas and
incentives to take away with you and relate back to your business/company."
Facilities manager, Progress Housing Group
"First time attendee to the Facilities event at NEC. Well organised, and spoke to a
lot of interesting subcontractors, peers and event staff.
I found the speakers useful and in good bite size chunks of time. I have
managed to speak to a good few people regarding solutions for my business,
and have had some follow on calls since the shows end. Look forward to
attending next year!"
