"Going to an Emerald event is like attending a specialist seminar where you can interact and consult with experts of your choice, In the past event alone I met people from internet marketing, design, music,  business planning, app developers etc. who I was able to talk about my projects with.  Within ten minutes or so they provided me with advice and ideas that I wouldn't have been able to find through forums and traditional routes.  It really is a great opportunity to network, one that should not be missed."
