On Thursday the 29th September, Torr|waterfield attended the Leicester Business Event 2011 at the Walkers Stadium. Arriving for an early setup before 8 am, Rachel, Alistair and Rebecca set up our stand in the Keith Weller room. Once the team had finished dragging our stand boxes up stairs there was just enough time for a quick breather and freshen up before the doors opened.
Crowds slowly made their way round the floor finally reaching our table and giving people the chance to find out more about us. Alistair and Rachel happily answered visitor’s questions on how we can help their business moving forward. Meanwhile, our new marketing person, Rebecca, walked around the other exhibitors introducing herself and Torr|waterfield.
This year, visitors required a pre paid ticket for entry to the event which meant that there were inevitably fewer attendees but this allowed our team to have quality time with anyone that visited our stand. People attending this year clearing were more interested in developing contacts and finding out more about each other and receiving freebies from exhibitors, leaving us with more sweeties to take back to the team.
By lunch time, more of the Torr|Waterfield team popped along to show their support. As many of our clients were also exhibiting on the day the team saw it as a good chance to say hello and have a quick catch up with a few familiar faces. This included popping over to our good friends at The Futures Network stand who were advertising their next event (more about that in our next blog).
At the end of the day we had a prize draw for an Amazon Kindle and a bottle of marmalade vodka. Rob Elliott from Bray and Bray went home with the Kindle and Luke Clarke from B&R won the vodka. Well done to both of you!
Torr|Waterfield is planning to attend many more events like this over the coming months. If you are running a networking event soon, we would love to hear about it. Feel free to contact our marketing team; Rebecca.email@example.com
