“Fostering Together focuses on fostering of children with disabilities and additional needs therefore RISE expo was a natural choice for us. Having an exhibition stand at the event where we were able meet and have quality conversations with people across the care sector, local authority staff, occupational therapists and other professionals, specialist equipment providers, as well as the general public works for us. Jade, Paul and the team from RISE were great to work with and very professional throughout. Fostering Together look forward to next year’s event.”
Neil Annis - Managing Director of Fostering Together
"Thank you for including us in Rise 22 it was an amazing experience, the interaction with the attendees and other exhibitors was really good, I made lots of contacts and brought our sport into the lives of some people I would've never imagined. My one take away memory will be the 'End of Life' hospice nurses, who bought a set of the equipment that we had, so they could use it with their residents, using what we use every day at training, is now going to make a difference in a new and simple way to somebody who is terminally ill"
Geraint Griffiths - Wheelchair American Football Commission Lead, BAFA Wheelchair Rugby
"A fun event to communicate with Occupational Therapists, Working Professionals in the industry, Businesses, and End Users. Having a presence at RiseExpo 22 was very important to us, as our Office and Stairlift Showroom is based in Maidstone, Kent, so the event is at the heart of our working service area. It was a great opportunity for our team to meet face-to-face the customers we speak to on the phone daily, and to introduce our business to new prospective customers. All the Team at RISE Expo were extremely helpful, and the day ran as smoothly as we could have hoped for as exhibitors. The day was a busy but relaxed environment, with plenty of interaction with shows, talks, and demonstrations. We look forward to returning next year!"
Amy Hadlow, Higher Elevation Ltd
“We've had good footfall through the stand today and there has been plenty of interest, doing a seminar also helped to draw traffic to the stand. We're relatively new to this part of the country so as a way to get your name out there and increase brand awareness it is a really valuable event."
“It's been very good today, we have seen plenty of Occupational Therapists and end users. It is important to us to make those connections with Occupational Therapists and get our products out there, showing them how they work and allowing them to touch them and try them out. A video on a website looks great but having someone physically try the product is a lot better"
Michael Kavanagh, Laybrook
“We have been a sponsor for the RISE Expo Connected To Care theatre today and have found it a very beneficial show. We have met a lot of interesting people with vast experience who have approached us for ideas and solutions to help them care for their clientele. It has been a pleasure coming to the RISE Expo and we look forward to returning next year and to any other RISE shows in the future."
Bruce Gutteridge, Hospital Direct
“RISE are committed to spreading the word and educating people in and around best practice. They work with all of the best clinicians - we've made multiple and excellent contacts where they have helped bring organisations together. I fully support RISE and know they are exactly what the industry needs.”
James Leinhardt, Levitex & Posture Care
"We have been really pleased to come back to RISE today. it has been great to see everyone's real interest in enjoying the opportunity to see and try out so many products and have a discussion with us. From healthcare professionals through to families and end users. We have really enjoyed today and will certainly be back next time."
