The Product & Services Marketplace will run throughout the conference giving participants the chance to see what some of our participants and speakers have to offer them.

You can book your opportunity to showcase your business when you Register.


“Following the conference, I engaged a consultant who I met at CRBW2013 to help structure our business plan – it is essential to have solid direction for one’s business and I was impressed with her creative methods to simplify this!”
