Case Study

Preparing a team for a trade show

Confex is, without doubt, the biggest conference and exhibition event in the UK. Held annually at Earl's Court in London, it's a fabulous opportunity for venues to demonstrate their services to a massive audience, and to sign up lots of new business. It's a showcase for some of the best facilities in the UK, all togther under one (enormous) roof.

It's also a fabulous opportunity to get a group of uncomfortable people together to look bored, struggle to interact with a rapidly moving sea of faces, and create a depressed, lonely image for your brand.

The marketing team at Harrogate International Centre wanted to avoid any possibility of the latter. They were investing heavily in a fantastic stand, and wanted to invest in developing their people as well. We worked with them to develop skills in attracting the right people in to conversation, presenting the right image, and having a hugely successful three days.

quick rapport building for trade shows

Further Information

The programme we designed and delivered for the Harrogate International Centre was in three parts:

Three things happened as a result of this work. The team thoroughly enjoyed Confex - not always the case, as it can be a tough three days. The stand was, by far, the busiest one in the show. But, most importantly, it was the most successful Confex ever for HIC in terms of the number of leads, the interest generated, and the actual "hard-cash" quantity of business signed up on the day.

What a smart investment.

The mechanical and eye-catching concept of breitling replica watches and ultra-skeletonisation comes from Hysek. It's the perfect combination of tourbillon and skeleton which was first unveiled in 2008 in the Furtif collection then in 2014 in the Verdict and IO ranges. The design is back but this year it's at its most extreme. The Furtif Skeleton Tourbillon's movement manual wind HW15 calibre is laid bare, revealing its vital rolex replica watches functions: the wheel train fuelling the gold hour and minute hands in the centre, the barrel driving the 48-hour power reserve at 5 o' clock and the flying skeleton tourbillon spinning at 11. Its oversize square case is finished with rotating replica watches uk, has a PVD-coated titanium container with two sapphire crystals on the back (metallic stripes on the reverse) and bevelled sides locked down by four gold screws.
