Exhibitions are without doubt a big investment for businesses but at Parksafe we’re very aware of the many and varied benefits they bring and the valuable return on our investment, including:
1. Putting faces to names
We love being able to meet in person with our customers, whether it’s a catch up with someone we haven’t seen for a while or a first time meet up with a customer. In person we can take the time to have more meaningful conversations and our prospects and customers can easily ask questions of us.
2. Being amongst great company
When you’re at an industry event you know you’re in like-minded company, with people that share your passion, your interests and some of your experiences too.
3. Learning from the industry
Exhibitions and trade shows are a fantastic opportunity for us to learn from industry experts, understand where the industry is and where it’s going and to keep up to date with the latest trends.
4. Promoting product launches
Shows are a great place for us to feature new innovations to the industry, be that a new customer looking for a solution or an existing customer who is already familiar with our innovative products.
5. Building on our brand
Having supplied the automotive industry for over 30 years we like to think we’ve established ourselves as a leading automotive product supplier and exhibiting is the perfect arena to showcase what we do.
6. Networking with partners and suppliers
We know that a strong supply chain is crucial to our high-quality operation and delivering great customer service. That’s why we always make time for networking!
7. Checking out the competition
It’s important to know what our competitors are up to and who doesn’t love a bit of healthy competition?!
This year the Parksafe Group will exhibit at more events than ever before and our team are very excited by that. As well as our friendly, knowledgeable team being on hand to help, our stands will feature a selection of our most popular products and at some shows we’ll even have the demo van with us so that you can see our products in action.
We had a great time at the ITT Hub last year and can’t wait to return from the 11-12th May 2022 this year. Held at Farnborough International it’s the go-to event for the commercial and passenger road transport sector, bringing together the latest innovation and technology for bus, coach, truck, van, last mile, and autonomous vehicle fleets. To join us, get your free tickets here.
The Commercial Vehicle Show is another show that we exhibited at last year and are looking to forward to returning to. With all the latest vehicles, trailers, equipment, and technology on display, this free show is unmissable for fleet owners, directors, senior managers, and engineers and to anyone running commercial vehicles as part of their business. The show runs from the 24 – 26th May 2022 at the NEC Birmingham and you can check out the show plan and exhibitor list here.
The Fleet Summit is another free event, both live and virtual, that brings operations professionals and key industry solution providers together under one roof. Taking place between the 13th – 14th June 2022, the summit consists of 1-2-1 business meetings, interactive seminars and plenty of networking opportunities. Taking place at the impressive looking Whittlebury Park country estate in Northampton our team will be hoping they’ll find time for some pampering in the spa, a round of golf or a spin on the nearby Silverstone circuit!
We’ll end June and begin July with the Road Transport Expo 2022 at Stoneleigh Park. This exhibition is advertised as the ‘one-stop industry event that’s all about the truck and everything related to it’ and we can’t wait for this new show which takes between 30th June to the 2nd July. HGVs will be at the very heart of everything this free show will offer visitors – from the latest models on display and available to ‘ride and drive’ through to informative seminars and live demonstrations.
The FORS Members’ Conference will open its doors to 700 FORS operators at the Manchester central convention complex on the 12th July and there will be an exhibition running alongside, which we will be a part of. With our FORS kit being one of our most popular products it’s a great opportunity for us to network with delegates and other exhibitors.
After what will be a busy few summer months exhibiting we’re going to give the team a little rest before we take them back out on the road for the two remaining events of the year.
From the 1st to the 3rd of November, we’ll be back at the NEC Birmingham but this time for Euro Bus Expo. It’s the largest UK showcase of ‘must-have’ buses, coaches mini and midi vehicles, equipment, components and services to the bus and coach industry. You can find out more here.
Finally, we finish with another Fleet Summit but this time at Heathrow from the 7th to the 8th November.
If you are visiting one of these events and would like to book some time in the day to meet with our team, then do let us know. We’re often very busy on the day but if we know you’re coming and want to catch up, we’ll make sure one of our team is free.
We really do hope to see you this year.
