Suppliers

Suppliers to the FRS who want to showcase their innovative products and solutions can book a table top stand in the refreshment area. These stands are limited. There are two options, one for a table top only and one that includes a 15 minute presentation slot to talk to delegates on the stage about your product. NB - Due to the nature of this conference if you choose the option with a presentation slot your presentation must be about an Innovative product rather than a product already well known to the sector.

Each table top stand includes attendance for one person to attend both days of the event including lunch and refreshments. Accommodation and dinner is available to book separately at option F if required.

Use the booking tab to book your place at what promises to be a sell out event. Places are limited to 100.
