The Storytellers

Project Director

Screwfix Live has been a great success, breaking records in terms of both visitor numbers and exhibitors. The Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre works really well for us in attracting our southern region target market and for its flexibility. Furthermore, the professionalism of the team at Farnborough International makes hosting the show at the venue effortless.


Our event was a tremendous success and the support we received on the day from the venue team was fantastic. DPRTE is a big event for us, and there are always additional pressures on the day. Knowing we had an experienced team on site who we could trust to ensure all aspects of the venue were entirely taken care of made our lives a great deal easier. Being a secure site was essential for us which, along with ample free car parking, made the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre the perfect location for our event.
