The concept was overwhelmingly met with positive support which was reflected in the record-breaking attendance number and exhibitor rebooking rate. We focused this year on making significant changes to the event to best fit the changing needs and demands of the market and are extremely pleased that we were able to provide an exciting and successful platform for professionals to share insights, best practices and lessons learned," said Ms. Christine Shaw, Event Director.
215 companies exhibited at the event, with 95% of them rebooking their space onsite for 2018. Over the course of the three days, thousands of attendees visited the exhibit floor to view the latest products, technologies and services.
