“I make all the connections I need to make out here… The show meets my expectations every year; I want to be here next year – I want to be here until they tell me I can’t come anymore!”

Marshall Pelot, Western Regional Manager, DIT-MCO International

“We’ve had a good mix of people, both engineers who want to use the machines, as well as people on the supply side who are interested in discussing plastics applications [and things like that], so we’ve met a good variety of people.”

Russell Singer, Design & Development, MAKEiT, Inc

“We’ve made lots of great connections, literally my whole jacket is full of business cards!  The show organisers have just been phenomenal, given us great news feeds – we’ve never had that before. Next year we’ll be back, this is the first – more to come.“

Brian Matthews, CEO, Additec

"You always dream of the connections you’d like to have - on the first day we got all the dream connections; for example Scaled Composites, SpaceX, Northrop Grumman – we’ve made contacts there!"

Peter Bishop, CEO & Managing Director, Bishop GmbH - Aeronautical Engineers

 “So far it’s been really good. For us, what’s nice about this conference as suppose to others is it’s a little more technical and engineering focused and so we find the conversations we have we customers or industry partners is more technical focused on the product.”

Greg Knapp, Business Development Manager, BAE Systems

“We have a very new technology and we came here to see what is available in the industry. We’ve have had some interesting contacts, a lot of surrounding laboratories in the area - like JPL are obviously interesting partners - but also other ones as well. So it’s been a good experience.”

Anna Rissanen, Research Team Leader, VTT Technical research Centre of Finland

“The show is excellent for us, because it really gets us in contact with the systems engineers and people that need to connect their box to another box, or even testing. We have a lot of good leads; now it’s time to follow up, but we are very optimistic.”

Tony DeRosa, Sr. Product Manager, Everett Charles Technologies

“We were looking to mostly to get to the Space Primes, like Orbital ATK, Northrop Grumman, L-3 and so on.  We’re already exchanging data and signing NDAs, so we’re hoping it’s going to generate real solid business. It has exceeded expectations; we’ve done a lot of tradeshows – this is one of the best ones.”

Peter Adams, President, Burloak Technologies Inc.

"Our first and foremost checkpoint is to network with customers and potential contacts, and we’ve been able to do that very effectively. We’ve been very, very, very happy with what we’ve seen here so far at the show. We’ve been able to meet a number of people that could be potential suppliers, team mates and then also prospective customers as well."

Larry Strader, Manager, Jacobs

 “Our experience at the show has been good; we’ve had quite a few people come by, we’ve had great success, so I will that say we’ll come back here next year as well.”

Kasper Falck Schmidt, Sales Manager, Falck Schmidt Defence Systems
