Meet the Experts Seminar Stage

This is our first year for our second seminar theatre and it is designed to give our visitors the opportunity to hear and to also question individual experts. We have chosen a diverse range of individuals and businesses to ensure that there is something of interest for everyone. There is the opportunity to hear from Government agencies, from those with unique lending products and also first time exhibitors. Whether you manage to get one of the seats available or just lean over the wall and listen to part or all of the presentation, a visit to the Meet the Experts stage is certainly worthwhile.
