"We’ve just taken an order for just short of £1 million from a customer that we met at Subcon 2018. I just wanted to thank for the professional approach adopted by your marketing team. Without Subcon, it could not have happened. Really looking forward to 2019."

Tony O’Brien, Sales Director, DVR

"Subcon is specifically for the type of business our members do. All of our members exhibiting came away with new sales leads. I think the Subcon show is a must for any business involved in the subcontract engineering market."

Chris Gladwin, Director, BTMA

"This is the first time we have exhibited at any event, we found the experience very good and have secured new customers just 1 week after the show, it was very well organised and we would definitely consider doing it again."

James Rigby, Managing Director, PCT Engineering Ltd

"Subcon has been a show that we at Thermaset have exhibited at for 3 years and we have always found the show to be very successful despite being slightly adrift to our normal focus as we see lots of our customers exhibiting at the show too. There are always more than enough visitors to the show that are interested in powder coating that definitely makes exhibiting worthwhile."

Benn Jennens, Marketing Manager, Thermaset Ltd
