Forum Insight: What to expect from our Forums this year - Retail Shopfitting Summit
  • Forum Insight: What to expect from our Forums this year

    Starting off 2017 as we mean to go on, this year’s first forum ended last week, with people from across the globe booking in to the Radisson Blu Hotel for two days of meeting, greeting, wining and dining with some of the industry’s leading names. With seminars throughout the day tailored to individual industry needs, and meetings through the day to set up the right people, our Forums and Summits offer a bespoke experience for senior figures to get together to learn, share, network and engage.

    “Forums like this give me an opportunity to see the people who I would like to work with, get to know more about these companies,” said Javed Sheikh from ICIC Bank UK, “it’s very important for me that I have vendors that are industry accredited and these are the Forums where I get a chance to know more about the companies, know more about what’s happening in the facilities world.”

    “From what I was hearing in the seminars, it’s such a wide field, and want to be able to go back to my office and say to my sales guys ‘right okay we need to be targeting these guys or those guys’” said Ed Taylor, Taylor Made Designs, “I’ve had a couple of meetings this morning and you get such a broad spectrum of people in this sector, it can range from a guy that’s just a one man band facilities manager to a big construction firm who are in charge of multimillion pound projects with hundreds if not thousands of consultants and staff”

    “I think you always have to take time off from the job that you do to just take a step back and look around, so for me, meeting people who you wouldn’t necessarily normally have anything to do with is a good thing.”said Carl Boorer from Solid Management, “It’s been a good Forum, you’re always looking for new and fresh ideas. I think if you don’t keep your eyes and ears open then you get left behind, really,”

    “We come to this one and the OSH one in February and normally get good results from it,” explained AGF Fire Protection’s Ruth Cunningham, “it’s our main marketing, we don’t do any other advertising, this is what we do.”
