"Lovely to meet you yesterday, we had a really good time at the expo, coming up form South Wales was a good idea to meet and connect with some businesses in Bristol."
"Thanks for having us we had a great day at the Bristol expo.
It was a lot busier than I originally thought and there was a huge amount of footfall throughout the day which was great. Also, the location was good too as it is central in Bristol and had plenty of parking etc nearby."
