“The one event in the year not to be missed”
“I sold three shows to 4 four venues, so the outcomes were fantastic.”
“Just brilliant to have so many new and key organisations/companies/individuals in one place at one time ready to talk to each other!”
“It was all really useful! I travelled from London, so seeing all of these venues in one day was a cost effective and efficient way for me to move conversations forward and meet people face to face”
“I was really pleased with how easy the format made it to meet and speak to new people.”
“I made a lot of really useful contacts during the face to face and networking sessions some of whom I am definitely looking to follow up in terms of booking for this year. The event exceeded my expectations in terms of the amount of successful contacts that I made.”
“We have made connections with regards to our next touring production, connections regarding development opportunities of a current work in progress and connections regarding professional development and collaboration.”
“I went in not knowing what the outcome would be and was pleasantly surprised by how much my future development was shaped by the day.”
“Thank you very much for a wonderful day. It made the stressful selling of a tour enjoyable and a very nice day in all.”
