At the beginning of March, myself, Theresa and Gerry took our purple couch to Marketing Week Live 2017. The annual event at the London Olympia in the heart of Kensington is the place to catch up with all that’s new in the world of marketing.
From what’s hot in the world of promotional merchandise to the latest innovations in traditional media, the two-day event is the place to find out what’s available. We love it as it’s a chance to talk face to face and all importantly get a hands-on feel for what’s happening.
This year Innocent’s CEO Douglas Lamont and global director of loyalty, customer insight and analytics at Marks & Spencer Nathan Ansell, were the hottest speakers. They imparted their wisdom along with industry leaders in every sector of marketing making it a brilliant event for everyone attending and exhibitors alike.
For our team, it was a great opportunity to liaise with some new faces from Bosch Group, Ministry of Sound and William Hill. We also caught up with our partners from the BPMA and said hello to many of our existing clients like Allianz, Club Wembley and Tottenham Hotspur FC.
Our new couch, upholstered in our trademark purple and complete with Orb cushions was a huge hit. Everyone complimented our vibrant stand and wanted to have a seat! Even our new furry friend called Freckles from Met Police couldn’t resist a seat beside Pamela at the show. It wasn’t long before he discovered the Tunnocks tea cakes. When you’re that busy a little bit of time out, a sugar boost and a chat are absolutely necessary. We’re sure the addition of some very Scottish treats in the shape of Tunnock’s Teacakes sweetened the deal!
Our impressive portfolio of clients wowed a lot of curious marketers at the event and we are looking forward to following up with all leads from the show and successfully delivering promotional merchandise solutions.
