One Exhibitor contacted us to say this about his experience of IFE:

We are exhibitors and users of the website for the IFE exhibition. What a pleasant surprise it was to find an easy to navigate, intuitive website with the capabilities and scope to upload and present our company to its best advantage.

We have uploaded multiple images on individual product pages and highlighted our presence which has resulted in numerous viewings and contacts from potential clients.

I particularly liked the prompts and easy to use interface, It was also easy to find your way back to the home page if we decided to explore the comprehensive information which if you want it, is all there.

We have received over 3800 hits on our profile and products to date which has impressed and added to the great value that IFE provides as both a face to face and online marketing channel.
