Here’s what people say about exhibiting
“The Historic Buildings event is a very important date in our diary as it brings together such a significant number of historic house and garden owners in one place. It gives us a unique opportunity to talk to our existing clients as well to make other owners aware of what we can offer.”
– Alec Moore, Partner, Weatherbys Hamilton
“The Historic Buildings Parks & Gardens Event provided me with an exceptionally relevant opportunity for me to put my national garden consultancy business in front of the owners and managers of historic estates and gardens around the UK. It also provided me with an opportunity to meet up and connect with many of the other exhibitors who work in our related industry. The stands are well positioned and there was a lot of footfall which made for a very busy and exhausting day.”
– Michael Walker, National Gardens Specialist
