What our clients have to say.

The Reference Point has always been an excellent partner for Vickers Oils in planning and organising the SMM exhibition in Hamburg, Germany. From efficiently handling the requirements of Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH (the event organisers), to supporting us with our requirements at the exhibition, they have played a crucial role in our success at SMM over the years. Nele Andersch has personally looked after the requirements of Vickers Oils and supported us along every step in organising and planning the exhibition. All queries were effectively conveyed to the organisers by Nele and appropriate solution was reached on behalf of both parties. We always look forward to exhibiting at SMM and working with Nele in making it a success. Vickers Oils have partnered with The Reference Point for more than 10 years.
Vickers Oils, Leeds
We’ve been working with The Reference Point since 2016. Due to the scale of the event, the booking process for WindEnergy Hamburg is quite different to other exhibitions we attend, Nele is always on hand to help us navigate this and achieve our objectives both with exhibition space and sponsorship opportunities. Her knowledge and expertise have been extremely useful as well as her flexible approach adapting to changes in our business needs.
