Touchpro Media are delighted to have supplied Connexions Bolton with branded touch screen solutions for the 2009 Skills North West Exhibition at the Bolton Arena in Lancashire.


Thousands of 13-15 year olds eager to source ideas for their career path attended the exhibition with their teachers and tutors.
