What they said about this Smartex event


“Thank you, we both really enjoyed the conference and the various presentations with lots of participation from the delegates.”

“Well done on a great conference, it was very beneficial and informative.”

“Thanks very much once again for putting on a great event.”

“An amazing event as always, out-measured only in how informative it was.  I left with an abundance of literature and contact details, and more importantly, live case studies of how universities out in the field are utilising / embracing current technologies, based on cards and Apps.”

“Just a quick e-mail to say ‘thank you’ for putting on an excellent event, it was most informative, particularly as we are currently in the process of upgrading our access control system. The networking opportunities were also well thought out, and I came away with a handful of business cards from suppliers whose products may well suit our needs.”

“Many thanks to yourself, Richard and Josephine.  The conference was very interesting and informative.  It’s given me a lot to think about and to take back to my colleagues…”


“We had a successful time at HESCA and made some great contacts.  Look forward to seeing you next year.”

“We found the event enjoyable and worthwhile and were very pleased with the response to both the presentation and the briefing session.” 

“The format you set out was very useful from a supplier perspective keeping it as a purely interactive session allowed us to gain input and feedback far more effectively than a chat around the lunch/coffee sessions.”

“…add us to the list for next year please.”

“Thanks again for all your hard work with the organisation - it was another really enjoyable couple of days.”

“As I’ve not exhibited before I cannot make any comparisons with previous events but on face value can’t really think of how anything could have been done better than it was. One very positive comment is about the breakout sessions, thanks for talking me in to doing it, the concept is a great idea.”

“I found the conference to be most informative and it certainly helped us to understand where the universities are heading.”

“Many thanks to you both and to Richard for organising a very useful and enjoyable event. We had some very interesting and I think fruitful conversations which I hope will be the start of some meaningful professional relationships. The venue was excellent and the size of the event was just right.” 

“Thank you for organising an enjoyable and successful event with your customary good cheer.”
