Our commercial team were busy last week exhibiting at Hotelympia. One of our favourite shows of the year, this event stands at the forefront of hospitality innovation, bringing together thousands of businesses, hoteliers, restaurants and pubs. We always see these exhibitions as a fantastic opportunity to catch up with existing clients as well as to promote our latest products, and engage with potential new clients.
This year we were exhibiting our laundry, rotary ironing and dishwashing equipment as well as showcasing our hotel TV and guest communication and digital signage solutions. Our signage was extremely popular as it is so easily customisable and can be updated remotely for multi-screen or multi-site functionality. It provides a high impact delivery of informative and way-finding information for hotel foyers, conference rooms and corridors.
As ever, our Miele stacked commercial washing machines and tumble dryers were very well received as they are highly effective and robust whilst reducing the footprint in the room. It was the first time we had brought a rotary ironer to a show and it also generated a lot of interest amongst the smaller laundry operations.
It was great to see so many familiar faces and we will be busy meeting up with our new contacts over the next few weeks.
As always, it was really good to catch up with so many of our clients at the exhibition, and our new products will hopefully lead to some account expansions. Our diaries are pretty busy for the next month as we follow up on all the new leads — Thankfully our feet have now recovered from all the hours on the stand! - Gill Russell, National Account Manager.
