Thank you to everyone who attended, exhibited and helped! It was an amazing achievement from a standing start and it has been enormously encouraging to discover the depth and breadth of talent in our area.

We were also impressed by the goodwill from our sponsors and our volunteers like our premium partner the Forex brokers review site, many of whom put in innumerable hours of work behind the scenes to make the whole process possible.
