The Emergency Services Show has improved year on year and this year's had a real buzz and excitement for both visitors and exhibitors. It’s a great show with a very personal service. The majority of visitors are decision-makers and individuals looking to make improvements and changes. We have always used this platform to launch new products and services.

Claudine Irwin, Business Development Executive - Alfa Drop Box
As first-time exhibitors, we were impressed with the quantity and quality of visitors. Our aim was to gain a better understanding of how surplus equipment is handled within the industry, and promote our disposal services to those attending. From the quality of leads, I don't think we will be long gaining a return on our investment. We've already booked next year!

  • 'It’s been a bloody good show. I came with a perception and I am pleased to say I was completely wrong. We’ve had a very, very good show and seen some excellent people.'
    Adam Liardat
  • The Emergency Services Show has been an incredible platform for us. Everybody is here to learn about what every manufacturer has to offer and where technology is going so that we can help keep firefighters safer. It’s all about technology, and not just what’s available now but what will be available tomorrow. That theme has resonated really well and we are proud to have been a part of it.

The quality of the people who have come up and who are genuinely interested in what we are doing, and we can offer them a genuine benefit. It’s been a real roaring success.
