B2B Face to Face is better every time

PurplePower enjoyed attending this year’s Cambridge Business to Business Exhibition yesterday (Tuesday Sept 18th) which was the most successful yet with a total of 93 stands.

The exhibitors were made up of a variety of different sectors such as retail; a Raincoat company which designs beautiful brightly coloured raincoats for upright bicycles to signage display solutions companies to the more traditional B2Bs like Telecoms, Web Design and some fresh and exciting PR and Marketing organisations like Method Creative www.methodcreative.co.uk who organised free workshops on the day including “Building a Better Brand” to help with Brand awareness.

IT Software solutions, particularly Cloud and Virtualisation technology had a strong presence as well as business consultancies like Simply Careers. We met Shani from Simply Careers who engage with businesses to understand their market and strategy and the impact they will have on employee capability. www.simply-careers.co.uk

We had a lot of interest in our Win a Free Temp for the Day competition which Emma will be drawing out of a hat this Friday.

We did wonder if footfall had been affected by the event’s new location at the Newmarket Racetrack. It was moved from Cambridge 2 years ago and there, people could wander in during a lunch break. At least here, however there’s ample parking and if the other stands are potential clients, it’s an excellent platform to network.

All in all, there was a great buzz and we met many interesting contacts so we will definitely be back next year in all our purpleness. 

Our cupcakes went down a storm too and looked so pretty people didn’t want to eat them at first.
