One van, one awards ceremony, one round table, one Intel ‘sweet shop’, one merger announcement, one cocktail reception (thanks MinQii for both of those), one supper club, one virtual mannequin, one bar, one vagabond, one new album cover, one buzzwall, one perfect digital exhibition network (thanks Melford, thanks signagelive), one beer bust (thanks dZine)…
The organisers tell us that day one saw an amazing 2,063 punters pass through the exhibition hall and day two 1,128 (it was quieter on day two but just as good).
It was easy to see (and hear) that 30% of these visitors were from overseas – an amazingly high number and something that happens year after year at this event in London. Maybe folks just like coming to London.
Jason added via skype “What a show, bar far the best we have ever done”
All the exhibitors who we spoke to were incredibly pleased with the quality of the visitors. There were real networks and real end users in attendance and they were all looking for product, solutions and answers.
First time exhibitor Jawad Siddiqui from Verifone who put the cleanest, newest taxi we have ever seen on the show floor was incredibly happy and told us he was pleasantly surprised at just how the good show was and how vibrant the industry is.
Frank Emerson, MD Pixel Inspirations told us “We only decided to take a stand 4 weeks prior to the event and so far we are absolutely delighted that we took the decision, time will tell but the number of solid enquiries was good with a lot of interest in the shelf edge solution and the freestanding solution
He added I think it has also broken the myth that Pixel don’t just do great content they supply great end to end solutions”
The quality of the stands was also superb, it seems that everyone had gone that extra mile to make sure what they presented was ‘just-so’ and hey things must be getting better – out of all the stands in Earls Court we only saw one PIXAR movie on display!!
