“All face to face meetings have led on to connections & hopefully tour bookings in the future season” Lindsay Brown, The Touring Network
“I really didn’t know what to expect from Emporium or how useful it would be, but I had one of the most constructive days spent away from the office at an event. Priceless networking opportunities, so many theatre people in the room it was quite amazing! The team were great, organised and friendly as ever. Thank you!” Rebecca Davis, Puppet Animation
“We were very impressed with the high level of organisation which resulted in the day running very smoothly. Very useful event and great to have the opportunity to meet with promoters/venue managers in an open and relaxed atmosphere.” balletLORENT
“We’re about to go into rehearsals for a new piece – I was looking to book a tour for 2014 – I now have several specific leads to follow up and have met key personnel at several interested venues. This is invaluable.” Ewan Downie, Company of Wolves
“It was a chance for to meet with other people in the industry. As a newcomer to this country this was priceless as it built real relationships rather than a series of cold emails.” Sarah Holmes, Paper Doll Militia
