The inaugural Festival and Outdoor Events Show, Festout joins the established array of Mash Media offerings, dedicated to enhancing and supporting the events industry.
Taking place at Sandown Park in Surrey, attendees of the show enjoyed the surroundings and September sunshine, with over 100 exhibitors offering a range of products and services, all focused on producing event creation.
Visitors to Festout were able to secure cost-effective solutions, and offerings; the impact of these business opportunities will positively affect a far-reaching network of event organisers, and their event specific audiences.
Festout’s Event Director, Duncan Siegle, commented: “We launched the exhibition on the back of many successful years with Event Production Show, to give our audiences a show at the end of the season, complimenting EPS at the start. The indoor and outdoor space at Sandown Park allowed our exhibitors to really show off and there were some tremendous structures on site for our visitors to enjoy. We didn’t know exactly what to expect in year one but were delighted with the feedback from exhibitors on the quality of people they met and detailed conversations they had. Our exhibitors have already signed new business contracts on the back of the exhibition, as well as with Festout for 2018 and this gives us all the opportunity to enjoy the second edition in September next year.”
Siegle concluded: “I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the many exhibitors, sponsors and partners who invested their time and money to support the launch of this exciting new exhibition, in particular Nick Morgan from We are the Fair, the team at GL events UK, NOEA, The Ticket Factory, the many other speakers and contributors and, of course, our venue for the launch and for 2018, Sandown Park and The Jockey Club.”
