"This is so much better than IMEX or EIBTM. I really remember who I've met because it's far more intimate. Working in this industry, we're rarely surprised by events, but everything at this Forum has given me inspiration and new ideas.” Charlotte Falzone Agence Carrément – France

"I like M&I Forums because of the intimate format and the relationships you create. The events are intense but you get to meet a lot of new contacts."

Virginia Groen

"I consider the time spent not only very useful but also enjoyable. I am sure that the contacts I've made and the information I have gathered are going to be useful for the success of my company. Moreover, I want to note the high level of organisation of the event, the friendship, the kindness, and the attention of each team member."

Raphaele Brichet

Frosch– USA

"I have attended several Forums before and they are always very well organised. M&I Forums does a great job of finding qualified delegates with experience. The networking activities give you the opportunity to meet with suppliers you might not have met otherwise."

John Crowe

Metracon – Canada

"I enjoyed M&I Forums for the fact it was more personal and professional and we had a chance to really interact with the vendors. It is a quality show where you don't spend time visiting huge booths. I do recommend M&I Forums for those who are serious about getting to know the vendors and not just out for a good time, this is truly a business event."

Gregorio Palomino

CRE8AD8 Event Marketing Agency – United States

"The meetings are intimate, efficient and of high quality. I can get the most out of the meetings and networking sessions in just three days. It is mostly business, but M&I Forums are also about having fun! Also, the Forum app is great!"

"The meetings are always relevant thanks to the appointment selection software which is very precise. I wouldn't make time for any other show, for me there is only M&I Forums."

Diane Tries

Eurojuris International - Belgium

"When I come to M&I Forums I know my time – and therefore my company's investment – is going to be well spent. You meet a lot of suppliers in a very time effective manner.
