"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."
