Our company has now attended two large conferences held at the MECC. The location is excellent, staffing and facilities are great. Access to bring large equipment for display was very well managed. Multiple presentation rooms allowed free flowing seminars to be held

Went and seen Carl Barron, as well as an expo. I think it is good set up, they hold some great shows as well. Parking can be a bit of an issue.

This show was the most terrible show i have seen in a long time. Poor Agnetha would cringe in shame to think she was being impersonated by this girl. They had zero personality, hardly moved at all and looked like they would still be out...More
