A Review of UK and Export Exhibitions Attended by Bunting Europe in 2016
Exhibiting at Trade Shows can be one of the most budget sapping activities in a Marketing budget. However, being seen at the right Trade Show is one of the best ways to connect with existing and potential customers.
In 2016, Bunting Europe exhibited at 7 Trade Shows including:
Southern Manufacturing, UK (February 2016)
The launch of a new range of Magnetic Sheet Fanners alongside the extensive display of magnets and magnetic assemblies helped generate 50% more leads than in 2015. Bunting will be present at the 2017 show in February.
ProPak, South Africa (March 2016)
The first overseas exhibition of the year was in South Africa with new distributor Eder Design. Dave Hills was in attendance and was able to identify the opportunities for Bunting and Magnetic Separators and Metal Detectors in the plastics sector.
Waste 16, UK (June 2016)
The first waste and recycling event of 2016 was the show organised by Skip Hire Magazine in Manchester. Bunting was a headline sponsor for the first time. The show provided an ideal opportunity to meet companies in the waste and recycling sector from the industrial heartland of the North. Bunting is also a headline sponsor for the 2017 show in Old Trafford, Manchester.
RWM 2016, UK (September 2016)
Demonstration was the key to success at RWM, the largest waste and recycling show in the UK. The High Intensity Separation Conveyor was working separating stainless steel and weakly magnetic materials. Also the Twin Pole Overband Magnet could be seen lifting small nuts and bolts.
K2016, Germany (October 2016)
The K Show is the largest Trade Exhibition devoted to Plastics and runs every 3-years. This year proved to be particularly successful and resulted with the appointment of several new distributors across Europe.
Pollutec, France (November 2016)
At the end of November, Dave Hills (Bunting’s Head of Sales) was in France to support local distributor Pronix at the international waste and recycling show. This was the first time that Bunting had been present at Pollutec, which provided the ideal platform to understand the waste and recycling sector in France.
Plast Eurasia 2016, Turkey (December 2016)
The final Trade Show of the year was in Istanbul, Turkey at Asia’s largest plastic exhibition. Dave Hills was on the stand supporting new local distributor Tepro Makine.
“At the start of 2016, our aim was to increase our [Bunting] visibility and that is what we have done,” explained Dave Hills. “Supporting our new and existing distributors at their local Trade Shows has proven really successful. 2017 is going to another very busy year of Trade Shows for Bunting Europe.”
