July 8, 2010 - PRLog -- With half of those pre-registered attending, and guests coming from word of mouth the NET Fair couldn’t have had a better launch. Over a 100 local tradesmen visited alongside dozens of visitors from the North of Scotland to the boundaries of Cornwall. Within minutes of the doors opening the exhibition area was booming with tradesmen connecting with other local businesses, major manufactures in their industry and taking in several seminars a piece.

The first seminar, PAT Testing Business Start Up by PASS Electrical Training Courses was such a success, with standing room only in its first run; it had to be run twice within a purpose built marquee to cope with the large turnout. The popular hot topic of Solar Panels and Renewable Energy was the highlight of the afternoon, seeing the Introduction to Solar Panel Installation seminar being repeated more than once as well by local based firm Revolution Power.

]“The NET Fair was a great success for us. Speaking to a range of local and national PAT Testers and Electricians and getting feedback from them was a rare opportunity offered by the unique trade fair. We look forward to it again next year.”
Michael Wright, Seaward Electronics

Major equipment exhibitors, including local Peterlee based Seaward Electronics, and the business start up companies like Business Link and Enterprise Made Simple had only positive comments from attending the trade show hosted by PASS;

“On behalf of Business Link I would like to thank you for allowing us to be involved in last week’s event which resulted in the generation of several business leads. My colleagues enjoyed being involved in the day and have asked me to express their thanks to you.”
Liz Hall, Business Adviser, Business Link Seaham

Several competitions ran through the day to win training courses and a valuable multifunction tester and PASS are delighted to reveal that by luck of the draw all were local winners. With great pleasure two winners were from Darlington College’s own electrician’s course. The FREE 17th Edition course winner, Alec Cropper, was over the moon as it’s his next course to undertake, saving him £100s, and looks forward to attending the course at PASS Electrical Training based in Stockton this Summer. PASS welcomed over a dozen students from Darlington College for the NET Fair which gave them and others new to the industry, the unique opportunity to rub shoulders alongside experienced and established PAT Testers, Electricians and Operations Managers locally, while giving them an insight into starting up their own business through the unique seminars.

The exhibitors, seminars and taster courses has allowed for a truly tailored, exclusive and unique exhibition for the PAT, Electrical Testing and Inspection and Renewable Energy Installation trades. The NET Fair,, which will be running again in 2011, and will remain the tradeshow for tradesmen.
