Previous Event Highlights

What our attendees say

It’s been a great show for us, had some great leads off the back of it, it’s been a great event all round. We’ve had lots of footfall onto Titan II, our innovation vehicle.

RS Components

We have seen business placed with us as a direct result of discussions with new customers at and after the show.


A fantastic platform for the company to officially launch its OneAir offering. We had a brilliant response and we would have chosen no other UK show to unveil this new initiative.
