Parkex 2011 was a fantastic success for exhibitors this year, and we thought it’d be worth highlighting the importance of such events in the business calendar.
First, I’m sure visitors and exhibitors alike would agree that to be able to meet clients and suppliers from the same industry – both potential and existing – all under one roof at the same time is worth the price of entry alone. It gives the opportunity to catch up with people in person that you might not otherwise get to see, to consolidate existing working relationships and form new ones.
Second, exhibitions like Parkex break up the working routine, taking staff out of their usual office environment and bombarding them with information, people and ideas which have an energising effect that can last for months. We’re sure that inspiration and innovation is at a high after Parkex for everyone in our industry.
Third – you can be nosy! Check out what the competition are doing, learn something new, consider new markets, think about what good ideas can be transferred from other markets to your own.
Parkex can bring up opportunities you didn’t even know existed, such as the two gentlemen from Uganda Taxi Company who visited our stand this year!
At Parkex the exhibitors really do pull out all the stops – demonstrating their latest innovations, and even offering special deals or free trials to visitors. I for one can’t wait for next year!
