Between September and November, we made up for the lost time during the pandemic by attending and exhibiting at numerous industry events, enjoying the irreplaceable benefits of face-to-face meetings and networking. Our final event of 2021 was two days of exhibiting at HOMES UK for a not-to-be-missed event for our clients, competitors, and supply chain.
Exhibiting at these events is very costly. In addition to the obvious financial commitment, taking our senior operational leaders away from their day-to-day duties during PiLON’s busiest ever month was not an easy decision to make. The pressure was on to achieve tangible business benefits to secure approval for future exhibitions, and we are pleased to say that based on the success of this years’ event, we have secured a stand at HOMES UK for 2022. It is exciting to think what innovations, improved processes, and rising talent in the business we will be able to share next year that we didn’t have this year!
The work involved with exhibiting at large events starts long before setting the early alarm to get you there in time on the day. It was critical that the design of our stand represented and showcased who PiLON is now, and where the business is heading over our next few years of growth and progress. We chose to highlight our four key pillars of delivery: Service, People, Tech, and Health & Safety and this formed the perfect backdrop for the meaningful discussions taking place at the stand. Additionally, these events are vital education opportunities. There is no better way to understand the business environment you are working in, and more importantly your unique place in it, than at events such as HOMES UK. Through discussions at ours and others’ stands, the team gained a greater understanding of driving factors and trends within the industry.
As well as the smiling faces of the PiLON team, we showcased NextMind technology, offering visitors to our stand the chance to play games operating solely using mind control. Thank you to everyone that got involved and gave it a go, it was a pleasure for us watching the shock on your faces when the game started doing its magic!
We are looking forward to many more events throughout 2022.
