Once again the Subcon show impressed with a good mix of exhibitors and visitors. I was able to network with suppliers and customers alike and source potential new business.

Darren Pearson, Director, Gee Graphite Ltd

Subcon provided an excellent day out meeting potential new suppliers and seeing new innovations. After all not everything can be done online or via Zoom.

Matt Nichols, Business Systems Manager, Wentworth Wooden Puzzles

Superb show, good companies, good interaction with the companies. Can't ask for more

Sally Barlow, Director, Barlow's Farming Ltd

There was a myriad of businesses (Local, National and International) to talk with, and it was gratifying to engage with a number of companies who may be a suitable fit and, with whom, we will continue to liaise and hopefully make part of our supply chain. Conference sessions were also available at the show on specific topics which gave another dimension to the day (and a chance to sit down (socially distanced of course) and save a bit of shoe leather). A well organized event and a great location.

Teresa Sykes, Head of Procurement, Simworx Ltd

An excellent exhibition with current relevance to industry.

Greg Hodge, BDM, Premier Group Manufacturing (Coventry) Ltd

Through our association with Qimtek at Subcon 2021 we have already turned over in excess of £500 000.00 with three clients found at the conference, and the forecast for the rest of 2022 is over £ 1m in new sales. Contracts Engineering Ltd highly recommend Qimtek.

We’ve generated lots of new leads from companies we haven’t seen before, or companies we’ve tried to get into in the past but haven’t managed to.

Logan Williams, Ash Technologies

We've visited the show for many years, and the 2022 show was yet another successful show

Subcon is a really good, interactive show, with a good atmosphere and wide diversity of people and businesses.

Sara Penrose, Co founder, Sara Penrose Limited

Subcon has been fantastic, we do this show every year because we find it great to generate new business.

Paul Smith, Omnidex Laser

I'd recommend Subcon because it gets people that are looking for subcontract manufacturing services at the exhibition. We've had millions of pounds worth of business, over the nine years we have been exhibiting at Subcon.
