Their focus goes beyond benefiting participating companies, they also look at their impact on the economy in the locations where they work. The critical mass of people that arrive somewhere, for up to a week, to attend one of our events creates a fantastic opportunity for local businesses. Whether in hospitality, transport or tourism the economic knock-on effect of our events can be huge, so they partner with local businesses to help them take advantage of the opportunity our events represent, while also providing in-demand services for their guests.
