Honest feedback from the exhibitors at the 2019 event:
"The Northern Business Exhibition is one of the best events that we have been to in recent years. We generated many new leads which have already converted with others in the pipeline and looking positive. We met with a customer that has huge potential for us as a business. The delegates there were a good fit for our target audience.
The icing on the cake was the brilliant support from the NS Events Group Team. With additional value added through marketing call campaigns, VIP tickets for our clients to an event sales training day (which will continue to offer benefits long after the Manchester event) made the event very good value. Coupled with a great venue (not too big, not so small that we got lost in other exhibitors) and strong positioning, the on the day support from the team was great - which is in contrast to some events where you get forgotten about.
Things like electricity being included really helped ease the pre show admin, and the exhibitor portal was easy to use and functional. We sponsored the Digital Marketing seminar hall and the supplied graphics looked great and very impactful. Even the scanner app was easy to use and could be set up for our exact needs.
Well done Northern Business Expo – we’ll be back!"
Thanks for all your brilliant communication – you really are the best show organiser that I deal with 😊 😊 😊
Fantastic couple of days at the Manchester Northern Business Expo. Met some wonderfully driven business people, watched our team shine in a new environment and did something that I never thought I could do, leading a packed workshop with Andy Nelson. I hope we have helped plenty of people get more from LinkedIn and hopefully inspired a few to go do something that scares them as much as presenting today did me.

Great show in a superb location - Well organised and attended by quality visitors. We generated 60 leads from the event and only need to convert 5 of them to achieve a great ROI.
It's difficult to measure for our business, but I'd say 5 leads per day gave us ROI, and we came away with 50 leads.
From start to finish it was a great experience but I felt that the additional marketing services that they offered really added value, I can't say there was anything that I disliked, in all honesty.
Pre-show organisation from Jo and Cat was exceptional and we felt that during the event; the team were very hands-on with any of our queries. The show exceeded our expectations and we do lots of exhibiting.

We've had a superb time at the Northern Business Show over the past two days, lots of leads, lots of engaged people really eager to learn about Yell and what we can do for their business.
Due to the ideas provided at the training day, leads captured increased massively and are continuing to increase. The ideas and information I came back with did impact and change how we approached and still approach any future events.
Great footfall and quality conversations. What a fantastic time we’ve had so far! Meeting so many forward thinking entrepreneurs and those starting a new business, great conversations and can’t wait to meet more people.
