Next week, we are heading to SME 2019 in Farnborough, which got us thinking about why we like going to expos, why expos matter, why they’re a fantastic platform for business activity….
Everything is mobile-influenced. We live in a mobile-first world.
Technology is rapidly advancing. Attending exhibitions is more than just a way to find new leads. We can experience for ourselves the hottest and most innovative devices, be on the front-line for pioneering demonstrations, and discover what the latest gadgets are.
Last year we came away with the usual pens, coasters and assorted treats, plus 3D printed plastic models of our best-looking (😉) team members – how cool is that?!
Check out some other reasons we go to expos……
|To Make Friends
Walk in with an open mind, a happy face and inquisitive self. Your fellow exhibitors are under the same pressure as you to deliver an ROI. Say hello! Have a chat, share a joke. Give them a wave and impart your challenges, visions and passions – who knows where the journey will lead? Their best client might be your ideal prospect.
|To Encourage Ideas
At exhibitions we talk with like-minded people, value contrasting opinions, partake in energetic discussions. We make the most of this opportunity to meet a diverse group of companies and individuals, forging new connections, which often lead us to discover exciting new concepts!
|To Showcase Fun-Tech
We like to create a reason for attendees to come and talk to us – stop, take a look, have a chat, grab their attention and have some fun in the process. We love having a thought-provoking talking point to enhance our company visibility, something that demonstrates our impressive manufacturing App skills……
And we created a robot to do just that – he’s called Uncle Bob.
Uncle Bob isn’t much of a conversationalist, but he’s a natural show-off and demands attention. He’s a robotic arm with his own personality – come along and find us at Southern Manufacturing Exhibition 2019 (Stand L195) and see if you can bend him to your will!
|To Sell Ourselves
Unlike many businesses we don’t rely on selling a physical product. At an exhibition, we can showcase our expertise to a primed audience of motivated individuals. We want them to believe in our team; our awesome coders and talented development crew.
An Expo gives us exposure and helps establish our place on the tech-scene. Our solutions are unique; the applications we create are bespoke. We make app dreams a reality.
So that’s just a few of our favourite reasons we attend expos…
What are yours?
Don’t forget to come and check us out at SME19 – 5th, 6th & 7th February 2019, at the Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre, Farnborough. Stand L195.
