    Well done to Josh and his team, this was a truly remarkable event. As an exhibitor, it was refreshing to see so much thought and effort put into this event. The Colva Care team had a good steady flow of people coming to the stand thanks to the before show marketing. I wasn’t expecting so many people to attend it was great, but we may need more goodie bags for next year. I would be happy to recommend the Hampshire business Show to any business thinking of Exhibiting.
    Ashley Fernandes
    Managing Director
    If anyone is thinking about whether they should exhibit at HBS I wouldn’t hesitate to say yes, even if they aren’t sure if ‘shows’ are for them. The reason for this is that Josh and the team really care about the attendees and are proactive in their promotion of the event. Having been there year one and seen the success I am looking forward to seeing it grow – 100% recommend exhibiting.
