Business Vision LIVE attracts delegates and exhibitors from across the South East, particularly from our neighbouring counties. As the event grows ever near, we spoke to three exhibitors to find out what attracts them to the event – and why visitors to the show should track down their stands!
Paul Squires, Digital Marketing Consultant at Surrey-based Finsbury Media told us why he’s hopping the county border to join us for their second year running: “Although we work with enterprise clients, we also love to work with smaller clients and help transform their business. We find local shows are a great way to speak to SME’s because there aren’t many Google Premier agencies around so we can speak with people who want to know more about that.”
We also asked Paul what visitors can expect to discover when they visit his company on stand 245: “Well, first of all, we’ll have some delicious cupcakes – great to go with the free tea and coffee from the show! Once you’re enjoying that, we can talk with you about our services and what could be useful for your business.
“It’s important to speak about what people do and what their goals are; we can then advise what benefits and solutions we can offer that will help them achieve that success. It’s rare to have the opportunity to speak directly with a Google expert directly – we are more than happy to spend time and explore the many solutions we offer that can benefit SME’s. We’ll have a £100 voucher for a new Google ad campaign for one lucky visitor!”, concluded Paul.
Essex-based Manic Merchandise has never been to Business Vision LIVE before – as a delegate or exhibitor – and it’s their first time exhibiting at any business show. The company’s Director, Ben Whibley explained what drew him to the event.
“We have lots of clients in Kent already, so it made sense from a geographical point of view to come over for Business Vision LIVE. We’ve never exhibited before, so if it’s a success, we’ll most likely look at other business shows to exhibit at and attend.”
Ben and his team will be on stand 215, and he told us how they plan to help the event’s delegates: “Choosing the right products can be difficult so we can help people to look at some ‘wow’ items that get a positive reaction.
“Why give a pen, if it’s not going to work? We’ll have lots of samples so people can see the range available and talk to people about ideas that get them noticed.
“Freebies and giveaways are a way of showing your business off in a positive light. Promotional products keep you in front of your target market; they can create a positive reaction or get a prospect to interact with your brand. A good promotional product will last a lifetime; why wouldn’t you want to give something away that people want to keep?”
South London-based Lady Personalised also creates bespoke products for both personal and corporate use. The business’s founder, Sinead Gomes is looking to expand from her home Borough of Greenwich and thought Business Vision LIVE offered her the ideal platform.
“I decided to exhibit at Business Vision Live with the view of expanding my business,” explained Sinead. “Having only launched in September 2018, it has already grown within the Borough of Greenwich, which supports my belief in its future success through involvement with various business groups and networking.
“By exhibiting at the Business Vision Live show, Lady Personalised has potential to expand its services to other businesses within the areas surrounding Kent.”
Lady Personalised will have a range of carefully selected samples on show on stand 285 and are offering a discount to anyone making a purchase as a thank-you for their support.
These are just three of the 200, plus exhibitors offering a wide range of business-enhancing products and services to visitors to Business Vision LIVE.
It’s not too late to come along, the event is free, and visitors can register on the day.
