Research & Innovation, 11th March 2014

This year’s event at Telford went off really well : great feedback on what was a really strong and envelope-pushing scientific programme, and most exhibitors reported great quality of leads.

Exhibitors : 23 full stands + 4 in the Innovation Zone = 27 companies

Delegates : TOTAL : 254 – 11.9% up on 2013

Breakdown :  
Delegates : 190
Exhibitors : 18
Speakers : 25
Posters : 21
Geographical :
UK : 155 61%
FR, Ger, It, Sp, Au, Bel : 25 10%
Switz : 4 2%
Dm, Fi, No, Sw : 17 7%
USA : 9 4%
ROW : 8 3%
Not specified: 36 14%

             

It was very interesting and pleasing that we attracted almost double our usual proportion of EU and ROW delegates.

Conclusion :
The event was a real success : it had critical mass, a good buzz, and delegates, exhibitors, speakers and chairs all went away with a strongly positive impression.

Feedback was very positive from all quarters, and there’s a strong motivation to run this event again in 2015 … watch this space !

Big thanks to conference directors Mike Jowett, Graham Daniels, & everyone on the R&I ’14 Team Good Show!
