It is my first time at WTCE so I’m here looking at how we can utilise the event for our company in the future and to progress into the market by participating next year. I am really impressed with the quantity of attendees and stands. I would describe the show as impressive and huge.

We think the show is well organised and the mobile app is really helpful in terms of functionality and it’s easy to move around and meet new suppliers. We work for an airline so WTCE is a place where we can see everything we need. It’s been very helpful as we have lots of new projects. There’s lots of variety and it’s worth the trip!

The show is well organised, everyone is positioned in a good location and the booths are very well presented. The event gives you an overview on what’s going on in the market. Everything is centralised and making new contacts is much easier when you have the right people available to speak to. The show is professionally handled and well organised.

Our goal is to find suppliers and we have had a very busy and productive visit to WTCE. The show is exclusive, innovative, and exactly what we needed. The meetings we’ve had and the networking opportunities the show offers are valuable.
