SPECIALIST MEDIA SHOW
2010 SHOW FEEDBACK
I just wanted to say thanks for such a great day yesterday. The whole event was brilliantly organised and great fun. There were so many interesting talks and some very inspiring speakers. I know Mark and I both got a lot out of the day. Can't wait for next year!
Alex Batho, Editorial Business Manager, Time Out (and Mark Elliott, MD of Time Out)
I found the show very useful, some polishing is required but a flying start, well done to the organisers.
Oliver Romain, MD, Accession Exhibitions and Publishing
Congratulations. I thought it was a great success. I learned an awful lot - from speakers and exhibitors - and made some very useful new contacts. So well worth the time and effort from my perspective.
David Bostock, Freelance
I went to the SMS with a clear goal of finding out more about digital applications for our magazines and I was not disappointed. The quality of the providers exhibiting at the show was superb and the information received and the contacts gained will help me to drive this part of our business forward. A great first SMS.
Ed Kenyon - MD of Bauer Media Consumer Cars
Both Mike and I found the day well spent, returning both inspired and having made some good contacts. The inspiration alone was worth the time away from the office through what is enough of a demanding time for everyone in publishing.
Alison Queenborough, Publishing Director BPG
The 2010 The Specialist Media Show was a well organised event with a wide range of exhibitors which provided me with valuable information and new business contacts and relationships. I found the range of seminars throughout the day to be extremely useful and beneficial. I look forward to visiting the 2011 show.
Mark Kenton. Group Circulation & Marketing Manager, Hubert Burda Media.
A huge 'Well done' to the SMS team for establishing an exciting new publishing event outside London. I found the seminars I attended very informative and also had some productive conversations with exhibitors.
Simon Blanchard, Head of Online Marketing, Bauer Media
A must for anyone working in specialist media who wants to understand the options and opportunities available for a passionate audience.
Chris Templeman, Ad Director, IPC Media
I visited the Specialist Media Show to meet new suppliers who were geared up for, and understood, our business. I certainly wasn't disappointed and will definitely visit again next year.
Sarah Norman, Publisher, A Place in the Sun magazine
There was plenty of thought-provoking content to make the day worthwhile. It's on my radar for next year.
Philip Gibbs, Publishing Director, Ocean Media
The show was a great learning curve for my online magazine and the seminars were well-organised and interesting. I will certainly be busy putting all the tips and advice into action!
Paul Gibson, www.thechauffeur.com
Excellent networking event. The workshops were busy and well presented and the overall impression was of a very professional operation.
Simon Gough Brown, marketing consultant
Congratulations, a welcome new event in the publishing calendar that will help owners and senior managers develop and grow their business in an increasingly challenging and exciting media environment.
Robin Coates, Media Consultant
Just to say congratulations and well done. Thought it was very good - and useful. And a brilliant effort in getting speakers to do the travelling - rather than us!
Mike Barnes, MD, BPG Ltd
Just wanted to say a big thank you for today, I thought you put on a great event, very professional and albeit small a great group of publishers! We would love to be able to support you guys on a bigger scale next year, hopefully some of those leads will turn into great clients for us : ) Really appreciate everything you have done...
Mark Stubbs, CEO Pixel Mags
We think the team at SMS have done a terrific job. We are sure this event is set to be even bigger year on year
Rose Benjamin, PPA
StreamExchange was delighted to exhibit at the inaugural Specialist Media Show. The quality of the visitors and delegates was superb and we generated firm interest in our digital video solutions and especially in our new video on demand player for ipad. We'll be back next year.
Fiona Ryder, CEO Stream Exchange
Lots of enthusiastic media people spoke to us about our fulfilment services. I'm quite sure we'll be working with more new customers as a result. See you next year.
David Alliston, MD, AASM
Better contacts than other exhibitions
Ross Murphy, Pagesuite
Thank you for organising a great show – Video Direct met some excellent contacts and we really enjoyed it.
Andrew Petheridge, Video Direct
The show delivered exactly what we had hoped for, a well presented and organised event attended by interesting and open minded Publishers
Jonathan Hunt, Divisional Director, McNaughton Publishing.
This show was very useful - not only for new information - we managed to get new business leads too. We'll be back next year.
Sandra Morrison, Jigowatt
Big CONGRATULATIONS on such a successful first event - you must be delighted. Well done!

Congrats to the team for an outstanding Specialist Media show. The first of many!
Miles Galliford, Sub Hub
It looked good and went smoothly - certainly from a participant perspective.
Chris Parsons, Q5 Partners
The show artfully managed a strong mix of exhibition, presentations, roundtables and workshops covering everything from postage to profiting from digital media. If you missed it, keep an eye out for next year’s event. I promise, it will be well worth the journey. Congratulations to organiser Carolyn Morgan and the team for a superb first event.
Peter Houston, Editorial Director Advanstar
You did a grand job at a time the industry is still in flux. Spot on timing. It was lovely to catch up with colleagues I've not seen for a while. Many thanks for a stimulating day.
Riva Elliott, MD, PMA training
The specialist media show was a coming together of the best in traditional and digital media to provide insight, inspiration and ideas for everyone who attended
Andrew Watts, KHWS
An inspiring range of speakers together with a good and balanced mix of faces from around the industry....it’s been a tough year out there and it was great to see so many still smiling and willing to share their successes with others. Not bad going for a launch show...well done!
Dave Littlechild, Sales Director, Adestra
Well done on what I thought was an excellent show. There were lots of people networking which must be good for next year!
Alan Morrison, AMP Publishing
Well done on a very impressive well organised show. There is a clear gap in the market for this and I will be briefing my directors next week about the show and how we could contribute.
