THE BAD (we prefer constructive):
You need better audio for the sessions especially when crowded
There was quite a crowd and hand's up in London we also suffered a sound issue. The workshops were an experimental idea which was a great success but only once we had the audio sorted. Apologies and rest assured we have a new plan for 2015!
Not enough companies attended
The Tour concept is a relatively new one for many manufacturers but its growing in size and prominence with exhibit bookings for 2015 already meaning that we are looking to upsize the venues.
Wanted to see more audio recording equipment
We had this request earlier this year and managed to get Pinknoise to come along, point taken though and we do need more - watch out for June 2015.
I was disappointed that Sony were not there as a company
Sony products were there on the Preston stand where the range was on show. Other Sony products were well placed on other stands with workshops from Promotion Hire. Den Lennie also covered the Sony range in a seminar that you can view here. We'll have a chat to our friends at Sony and see what we can do for 2015.
I would suggest that in the future to have a networking bar. This could help to meet people from the Industry.
Great idea, seeing as we were in a brewery it seems an opportunity we missed out on!
Start it a bit earlier.
The open times enables manufactures to set-up on the day and also avoids rush hour travel charges. Staying open til 6pm allowed many to pop in after work for a quick look around. There is demand to open early so we'll look at this next year so everyone gets more time to see everything.
Badge system could have been faster and more automated. But staff were friendly and very helpful.
London saw an overwhelming number of people through the door. Our trusted badge system checking in over 150 people in the first 30 minutes, apologies for any queue but hopefully it was worth the wait.
Far too small - was hoping it would be about half the size of BVE so very disappointed
We're not aiming to be a second best to BVE, we are a regional roadshow offering a relaxed and informative day to spend quality time with manufacturers and really get to know their products as well as meet and network with friends and colleagues. After each event we'll listen to your feedback and act upon it to enhance your experience next time. BVE is the main must attend UK event for which we compliment not compete with.
