Feedback from World of Learning exhibitors in 2015 has been exceptional and demonstrates that the event delivers a high quality audience year on year:
Mark Lloyd, Operations Director, Redware
This is our 3rd year and is undoubtedly the best so far. We are really pleased, it has been really great. There are an impressive number of decision makers, nearly all are willing to spend. The World of Learning is unlike other L&D events because people here know what they are after rather than testing the water. In particular, we have been impressed with the diversity of attendees, which has led to lots of talks with prospective partners.
We also have received lots of business referrals at the show this year, many from previous clients that we have worked from in the past.
Sue Roochove, Chief Marketing Officer,
Precision Marketing Group
This has been our company’s first time exhibiting ever. We have had a significant number of visitors to our stand, unusual considering were not well known in the marketplace. We have met some relevant prospects and will certainly get business from this show. We will definitely book again for next year. We specifically chose the World of Learning as it is a great organisation that provides helpful advice and an engaged audience.

It has been a good year, plenty of footfall. Our leads have been good, a good increase on last year. We’ve also had good interaction on email and social media regarding our latest news.
Vicky Marlee, Employer Services officer, NCFE

Karen Hanley Business Development Manager, Pearlcatchers
Our session on ‘engaging line managers’ really took off! We received some excellent feedback from attendees confirming the session really touched on key topics. We found that many people attend more than one of our sessions and met with professionals from many large organisations such as PepsiCo, American Express, AA and MoD. There was a great deal of interest in our products and our ideas seem to have really resonated with people.
