The place to do business

jigsaw1What attendees say about Event Buyers Live 

Excellent event not only giving us the opportunity to talk to top-rate suppliers but provided networking facilities with other event organisers sharing best and worst practices! Its re-assuring to know that no matter how big or small we are all swans paddling furiously below the water-line!
– Lechlade Music Festival


Just like any successful event EBL was Informal, structured, professional, inspired and inspiring, fun, informative and without any waste of space or time. For those of us who feel independent…it let us know that we’re not isolated or alone fantastic support all round.

This was the first time Carrier Rental Systems has attended such an event and for me, it was extremely worthwhile as I met people I have been trying to contact and others I hadn’t bargained on! All in all, an enlightening, interesting & valuable experience – well done to all at Stand Out and thank you!
– Carrier Rental Systems


EBL is a great place to meet new suppliers all in one place and also a great forum to meet other event organisers.
– Geestar Empire


My first time at Event Buyers live was very worthwhile. I met some good people who I hope to work with in the future and enjoyed both keynote speeches and roundtable discussions. I look forward to the next one!!

We had a great couple of days at EBL17. A great networking opportunity to meet both existing and new clients. Well paced and organised meetings with organisations that actually want to hear about the service you provide. Thanks EBL team for a great event.

Event Buyers Live provided a great opportunity to open my mind to what is going on in the industry, to pick up ideas and make contacts too. Definitely worth a couple of days out of the office!
– Bath University


EBL is a rock solid business event run by industry professionals for industry professionals, the organisation is second to none and this shines through in the communications prior to the event, the event itself and the communication post event. The chances for networking are huge and the buyers are of the very best quality from the events world! Keep up the good work guys!

Event Buyers Live is the most important networking event in my diary each year. The excellently managed and delivered event presents an unrivalled opportunity to engage with suppliers and industry professionals. Some of our best suppliers have been recruited through EBL and I’m delighted to have been involved.
– Bournemouth 7’s


EBL17 provided us with opportunities not only to meet new suppliers for existing events but for brand new events with new clients. We look forward to carrying this forward.
– Commercial Heritage Consultancy


I enjoyed EBL 17 – it was useful to meet some new contacts and see some familiar faces. I left having made a really useful contact for a large event project Im working on . Looking forward to next year.

EBL17 provided a fantastic opportunity to network with likeminded organisers and link with suppliers. It is a must for any organisation looking to expand their supplier relationships or monitor trends in the industry.
– Tankfest


The format is expertly designed to maximise networking opportunities, a really well organised two days, thank you to the EBL17 team.

For my first visit, this was a well organised and laid out event, hope you’ll invite us back again.
– A New Day Festival
As an event organiser the event was invaluable in making new contacts, cementing ideas, networking and generally being outside the ‘office box’ to give time to think with likeminded people!
– Shropshire Festivals
It was a fantastic show and your team should be very proud of what you achieved. I though the business opportunities, calibre of contractor and targeted opportunities were fantastic. The speakers were superb and there’s always a little room in the old grey matter for us all to learn, I certainly did. There was a also a great balance between formal and informal.
– Redwood Events


I was genuinely impressed by EBL. Compared to ILMC, IPM or the Event Production Show (stale and irrelevant) it struck the right chord between content and opportunity, whilst feeling fresh and relevant. You seem to have attracted the right buyers in order to attract the right suppliers.
Music Plus Sport


I have attended a couple of these forums in the past and this one, the quality of the seminars and speakers was the best I have ever seen. Pitched at just the right level, interesting stories, well chaired and I left feeling I have learnt a lot.
– RDA Events


A great way to have dedicated meetings with a range of suppliers in one venue over a short space of time.

An extremely well organised, professional event that is well worth the time out of the office.

First time, excellent quality introductions throughout, natural networking opportunities everywhere, well worth the time!

I’m sure most organisers would agree that blocking out two full days in the diary is far from easy. However, driving away from EBL16 I acknowledged it was a worthwhile use of my time.

A great quality event. It’s the first time I’ve attended and would recommend EBL highly to both organisers and suppliers, there is obviously value for both. A great networking opportunity, plus highly informative seminars with knowledgeable and entertaining speakers.

EBL17 was a great event and forum for swapping ideas, meeting new suppliers and keeping your finger on the pulse of the events industry.

I attended Event Buyers Live for the first time in 2017. I was very impressed by the event organisation, speakers and seminars. I found the format of meeting suppliers for set meetings a very effective way to discuss projects in greater detail than at other events.
– Greenman Festival


I found this year EBL very useful, attended some very useful one to one meeting with possible new suppliers for this years festivals. Great networking time with conversations from such a wide range of activities, really got a lot out of it. Both the opening and closing keynote speakers gave very informative talks, which have help steer me in a different mind set for the year.
– Cheltenham Festivals


The overall event was excellent. As a first time attendee I was unsure what to expect but was very pleasantly surprised.
