​eilive 2018 - Publican Testimonials


"Our first visit to eilive as relatively new publicans and were very impressed with firstly, the professionalism of the event and organisation of it all and secondly all the offers and ideas we brought back to the pub with us. Came away inspired and with a bag full of ideas for the pub, well done eilive."
Peter & Nicky Brown of White Horse Poppleton, York

"I thought the eilive event recently held at Elland Road was a huge success. Every stall we visited gave us an insight to what's available through Ei Publican Partnerships. Your help and advice was invaluable."
Karen Hart of the Duke of Wellington, East Keswick

"Many thanks for the invite to the trade show for publicans on Tuesday gone. We wanted you to know that we both got a lot out of the day, and thought the range of products was fantastic.  It was good to meet a lot of the suppliers on a face to face basis, which is always a good thing. Some of them really pulled out all the stops to impress, which we thought was fantastic with their bars and stalls very appealing to the eye.  Despite this, at no time did we feel under any pressure to make purchases.  The venue was also perfect for this exhibition and the staff at the door were very welcoming."
Angela & Paul of the Walnut Tree in Heworth, York

"Leeds eilive was great trip for our team, every aspect of pub life covered. We found a new draught craft lager, renewed our cask marque, kindly supported by our regional manager Phil Preston."
Jonathan at the Bay Horse, Hurworth

"One of the best trade & road shows you can visit, top suppliers, live demonstrations, great variety of displayers, a great day out and showcase for our industry."
Chris & Nick Green of the Stansfield Arms, Bradford

 
“It’s the first eilive I’ve been to and was impressed. I run two outlets with Ei Group and on arrival was very welcomed. On entering there was a variety of stalls offering brilliant deals on numerous products. The food options were good for my business and on speaking to my RM he pointed me in a direction towards a huge advertising TV which he thought would be a good idea for both my outlets which I enquired about. To be honest there was too much to take in as there was so much to look at but I have recommended to other Ei Group publicans as well worth the visit.”
Gary Young at the Rising Sun, Crawcrook
