Liz Cox, Marketing Communications Manager, JVC Professional Europe, said, There was a great range of customers at the show from end users to chief technical officers which meant we were able to show the right products to the right people. The Manchester location also gave us the opportunity to meet new many new faces.

They have fully embraced the exciting and educational content that has been presented on the show floor.
