What our attendees say

“I attended FORWARDER events, Doncaster because, having been to the London Event I realised these events are a great place to meet up with likeminded people and discuss the current state of the market! The speakers and subjects are always very current and really bring about a realisation we as freight forwarders are not just moving goods from A to B but offering a much wider service offering to our clients”

John Cass, Director

“The day was very well organised and added a bit of fun to a professional networking event, new contacts were made with potential new business too, looking forward to your news on the Leeds event 😊”

“The FORWARDER approach to networking is high-energy and creates impact. Social barriers are quickly broken-down enabling messages to be shared, business opportunities to be discussed and hopefully lasting relationships to be formed. On behalf of RailX we are certainly looking to build on the platform that you have helped to create”

“…Excellent, high impact and a great balance between professional but also relaxed, it flowed and you had enough time to speak and make connections, whilst listening to the speakers and taking in products being launched or demoed.”

“It was my first time at FORWARDER events & I am already booked on for the next as it was such a beneficial day for me. The high energy speed networking really sets you up for the day ahead & gives you the opportunity to meet great freight professionals who turn into reliable & trusted partners – together we are stronger.”

‘I luckily stumbled upon the advert for the upcoming FORWARDER Events and I knew I had to be a part of it. That is when I got in touch with Paul Stoneman who was so helpful in guiding me through the registration process, the venue location, the schedule for that day and what can be expected from the event. Thanks to Forwarder Events, we got to meet the right people and the right companies that we were searching for to take us further in our venture.’
