Record attendance at Plug In To Exertis
Distributor of technology products Exertis has announced that its third Plug In To Exertis channel event, which took place in May at Silverstone Circuit, attracted 1,250 visitors.
The event was supported by 116 vendors and featured four dedicated areas focused on business, AV, enterprise and consumer solutions. A record number of 740 resellers and retailers attended.
Christian Horner OBE, Team Principal at Red Bull Racing Formula One Team, was the guest speaker.
Paul Bryan, Exertis UK&I managing director, said: “This proved to be a great event for our customers, with the opportunity to see the diverse range of technologies that we offer and hear about our Exertis services that add great value to our resellers and retailers.
“Our seminar programme was particularly strong and well attended with a variety of interesting topics and our purpose-built Smart Home demonstrated why we are leaders in this area.”
Andy Hutchinson from independent electrical wholesaler Lamps commented on the event: “We’ve picked up some new information and some new products and some new suppliers which is the reason why we came here of course – to network and to see what else is out there which is going to help our business, so I think we have achieved that today.”
Chris Smith from LG Electronics said: “Normally the customers are so used to seeing these products online, so to give them the ability to actually come, touch, feel, see how thin OLED is and see how slim the video wall bezel is, it’s great for us. We’ve had some new customers, some good leads and some possible projects to work on straight away which is always great for an event.”
OrbitSound’s Dan Fletcher summed up the day: “It’s been a really good event from start to finish.”
