What exhibitors said about the show
"I think the show has been good. There’s been a lot of people, a lot of attendance. People passing by; I kind of like the idea of having different types of businesses like IoT, Security and Big Data, having a nice mix of things and for us in the booth it gets boring seeing the same people so now I get the chance to talk to some people that have a complete different perspective.
I led a sessions myself yesterday and it worked really well, I think the organisation worked really well.I was kind of suspicious with the idea of having the sessions inside all the buzz, but it actually worked out well. It worked out fine”
Principal Sales Engineer - Maria DB
“We’ve been on exhibition duty the whole time. It’s been that busy. I has a box of business cards when I arrived, 500, and all gone, every single one is gone. Really engaging.
“It’s our second time at the show, we did it last year. Definitely had to do it again this year, and it’s been a resounding success, really really good. I would suggest that anybody that is entering this market space, look at the BDW show, not only form a view point of exhibiting, but also presenting. You have to do the two together to make it worthwhile."

“The traffic over the two days is pleasant, especially Day 1. We’ve met our target audience and had good conversation with them as well. We also think that our booth location is good because it’s next to She Loves Data Theatre which helps drive the visitor flow to our side. Meanwhile, audience are attracted by the live demos we held at booth too. We’ve been already thinking to get a bigger booth next year and hold more live demos to attract the audience.”

I have taken away some great ideas from Big Data World! I have talked with some great suppliers which was my main reason for attending – to connect and network with people in the industry. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year!

‘The located Cloud & Data Centre events alongside Big Data World added huge value to my experience at the event as it made me think about the different ways of relating to data & making me question things which I don’t usually think about from a data point of view in my every day work life. Overall, I liked the range, scope & diversity of the event and I will definitely recommend the rest of the Sky team attend alongside myself in 2019.’

I’m here to learn about all emerging technologies, get an insight into the developments in the technology world. I think around Cloud and Machine Learning and AI are all big areas to cover so I think being able to get high level insights from the presentation available is important. I will be coming back next year as well.

My job scope covers a broad spectrum, having other shows like Big Data and IoT in one room is very convenient. Look forward to coming back next year too!”
