On a whole it was very, very successful three days. We probably had in excess of 150 qualified leads at the show and the potential of 5 to 10 machines that we are negotiating at the moment, so it was very, very positive.
It was quite a successful show – we achieved what we wanted to. The biggest thing was getting the exposure that we were after, which is really critical. We had some really cool customers and some important clients that came through and we generated some nice leads. We introduced our new flagship product to the public for the first time and we are really looking forward to the expo in September.
Initially we were a little concerned about attending the show due to Covid. It has been an incredibly good show and we’ve had an incredible amount of visitor interest. It’s been a great opportunity for us to showcase our full offering, whereas historically we showcase our wide format division. We had the opportunity and that has proved very fruitful for us. I’m quite exited about the leads that we’ve generated and the potential sales that will come from them.
We had a lot of quality leads, a lot of equipment enquiries and a lot of start-ups coming through. You see people that have been retrenched trying to start new businesses, so we saw a lot of that, and it was busier than we thought at times. It was a good show.
I’m very impressed with the size of the show and the amount of people. I did not expect it to be this busy and I also did not expect there to be as many serious buyers as there were, so all in all it’s more impressive than what I was expecting.
We were pleasantly surprised regarding how many people actually visited the show and the interest in the specific machines. We were concerned to a certain extent about the influence Covid would have had, but so far – we will see with the sales – the interest was been fairly high.
