The first ever ESTnet Software Exhibition took place on Thursday, 25 April at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea.
The global software technologies market had total revenues of $293 billion in 2011, which is expected to increase to $397 billion by the end of 2016, making it one of the world's fastest growing industries.
This free exhibition was an opportunity for businesses to meet and potentially collaborate with some of the most innovative and dynamic organisations in this industry, all based in Wales.
Exhibitors, including Method4, Certus IT and Accelero Digital, were on hand to to address current software requirements and discuss exciting possibilities for the future.
Method4 Managing Director Christian Coates said:
"From our point of view it was a rewarding and beneficial day. The Method4 stand was constantly busy, it was great to have a platform to talk to other business, share what we know and advise them were we can. We also have a couple of promising partnership opportunities to follow-up which is really exciting for us.
It was also a good opportunity to catch up with colleagues in the industry and share our views on the current business climate, latest developments and future direction of the software industry."
