What our visitors have been saying about us...


ExpoTees is always the highlight of ZeroLight's Graduate Recruitment Calendar. With graduates appointed immediately after every annual visit, it has proved time and time again to be the event to discover new technical talent.

Erin Turnbull, Talent Development Manager, Zerolight

Expotees is one of the premier events for showcasing the next generation of technology candidates on to market. It's great to see a university and students working together to join and add immediate value to the commercial market, and meet the rising superstars of the future as they take their first step into industry.

Victoria Howling, Head of Recruitment, Flashtalking

Being at ANIMEX and ExpoTees was a fantastic experience. I spent 2 days in awe of the people, students and facilities at Teesside University. I came away excited that I had found my 4th CG Intern for 2018. Somebody I have been looking for from institutes all over Europe. The level of talent is world class and we are looking forward to returning in 2019!
