Find out what our exhibitors and visitors thought of NFE 2017
“It was fantastic to catch up with many of our partners, as well as have the chance to demonstrate the platform to others. Over the last few years there has been a real sea-change in interest as funeral directors have started to experience significant benefits from using the service and this trend was continued at the National Funeral Exhibition with another increase in visitors at our stand.
“We expand the size of our stand every show but still seem to be getting busier and busier each time (or was it just because of the MuchLoved beer we were giving away this year?). Thank you everyone for visiting and we look forward to working with you.”Jonathan Davies
“As well as having productive discussions with existing and prospective business partners, the show provided a fantastic opportunity to catch up with funeral directing firms that we support. Friday and Saturday were particularly busy with record numbers of visitors to our stand.
“As usual, the show had a very positive vibe with both visitors and exhibitors taking the opportunity to mix and network with each other. I am pleased to say that this was another successful NFE for Ecclesiastical.”
“The NFE surpassed our expectations in terms of the quality of visitors. We spoke to 200 or 300 funeral directors, all decision makers, did really well at getting afuneralnotice out into the industry.”Ash Govind
“Frankly, at times we were almost mobbed, even with eight staff on the stand. It’s been a really successful show for us.”Greg Cranfield
“NFE was both a very successful and really enjoyable event for everyone at Homeland International. We had great conversations with friends from across the funeral sector and made valuable new connections from the UK and across the world.
“As a direct result of being at the exhibition we have already held follow up meetings with potential clients. We are delighted to have been part of this wonderful, successful event. We’ve already booked for 2019.”Sam Tester
“The atmosphere at the 2017 show was great and it’s certainly delivered business for us. We have a large footprint in the show, due to the size of the vehicles and so it’s a big investment for us – but strong sales leads ensure the investment is worthwhile.”Graham Clow
“This has been our single most successful marketing activity in eight years. We have exhibited at many trade shows in the care sector but it was refreshing to enter the funeral sector, meet with such a great response and have such an enjoyable three days. We’ve got plenty of leads and now just need to convert them.”Paul Edwards
