See what previous Irish companies who exhibited with Enterprise Ireland had to say about their experience at SXSW:

‘SXSW proved to be the perfect launch event for Sanctifly in the US. A vibrant and relevant audience of multi sector business professionals.
Not only have I lots of leads from the expo, the networking over the 4 days gave me insights and suggestions in to my US pricing and sales strategy which have influenced our sales model.’
Karl Llewellyn, CEO Sanctifly

‘Exhibiting with EI at SXSW exceeded my expectations, we formed important relationships and gained a partnership that will see our software rolled out to our partners' customers and partners. The interactive exhibition attracts investors, buyers, entrepreneurs and is a diverse audience.’
Carol McKeon, DataKraft

‘Of all of the events we have attended as a client company of Enterprise Ireland, we have found this to be by far the best. We would not have had nearly the reach and lead generation without Enterprise Ireland’s enthusiasm, company knowledge and general nous’
Terry Madigan – Systemlink Technologies
