Some testimonials from our last exhibition…

Frances Wright, Highwoods Community Centre

“I’ve found some ideas here that will make great days out for the community centre and eventually on holiday. I’ve really enjoyed myself, it’s not been too crowded which is great as things start to get back to normal so there is a nice, comfortable feel. I much prefer talking to people face to face and the show gives me that opportunity.”

Zoe Kent, Blenheim Palace

“We’ve had more time to talk to people and the group organisers here are of a really high quality. Sometimes it can be far too busy at trade shows and you have to move people on quite quickly and you don’t get the time to get to know what they’re looking for, today has been a great balance. It’s important to meet people face to face and connecting with them, to show that we can operate in safe way to build confidence back up after Covid. The GLT Show feels like it has a lot more of a friendlier approach than other trade shows I have exhibited at.”.

Anna Bennet, Visit Ely

We’ve spoken to a lot of quality group organisers today. We’ve had a lot more time to spend with people as it’s slightly quieter, but we really feel like they will definitely come and visit Ely in the future and they seem grateful that we’re exhibiting here. We will definitely be coming back to the GLT Show, the venue is perfect, everything was ready for us when we arrived, and the car park is really close so we could easily bring in everything for our stand.”
