On Monday 21st and Tuesday 22nd November, PPL took to our stand at The Movers and Storers Show at the Telford International Centre. Although we didn’t have any famous lookalikes – we saw Ricky Gervais, Wonder Woman and (a questionable!) Tom Cruise, we still managed to attract visitors to our stand.
As the biggest trade exhibition for the removals and storage industries, it was an exciting show for PPL as for many of the visitors, we were a new name to the industry. Our ProDriPole and ProtectAtainer generated plenty of interest and it was great to meet potential clients who really felt they had applications where these products, along with our barrier foil bags, desiccants and impact indicators, would help them to provide a better service to their customers.
Personally, it was my first exhibition and I enjoyed getting a taste of the Sales function of PPL. It gave me a great opportunity to learn from my more experienced colleagues, Philip and Sarah. Even though PPL didn’t have any lookalikes on the stand, Philip showed me the importance of both looking good and knowing your stuff, making sure he was groomed to perfection, in aid of Movember.
Now we’re back in the office, Sales and Customer Support will be following up with the sales leads which were generated and hopefully we can gain some new customers, in a new industry!
