PR Statistics, a commercial training provider working in the field of the analysis of ecological data, exhibited at BES Annual Meeting in Liverpool in December 2016.

As a new business I was at first a little unsure as to the benefits of taking a trade stand at what would be our first scientific conference. However, the whole process and organisation was made so easy with the help of BES staff both during the build-up and at the conference. Everything went extremely smoothly.The benefits of taking a stand at the BES Annual Meeting have surpassed my expectations.  I reached many more potential customers than I anticipated. We received lots of enquiries during and after the conference for statistics courses from the delegates that we spoke to over the 3 days. Being able to speak directly to people face to face and answer questions really helped us contact people who we would of otherwise not been able to reach and helped us generate new leads. I have already reserved  my stand for the Ecology Across Borders conference in Ghent.’
