The Tech Show North 2019 was the biggest gathering of technology companies, suppliers and vendors outside of London to occur this year.
Visitors were free to explore the very best talent and innovation in the UK technology scene, watch demos of products and services and even consult one-on-one with exhibitors to arrange work.
Given the nature of the Tech Show North, we anticipated some incredible and forward-thinking displays showing off the very best in technology – and we weren’t wrong.
Upon arriving, we saw an array of inventions, demos, light boxes and competitions being set up everywhere – including VR headsets, a branded buzz wire game and a 3D printer whirring away to produce figurines.
From digital agencies and fin-tech developers, to University research institutions and recruitment app designers, there was a stand representing something for absolutely everyone.
Being a Salesforce CRM provider ourselves, the visitors to our stand were primarily Salesforce rookies or users who hadn’t yet discovered the full power of the platform. Others recognised the word ‘Salesforce’ on our signage and simply wanted to know more on what it is, especially if it was being used in their workplace and they wanted to sharpen their knowledge.
Our head of sales, Stuart Greig, kept the demos flowing on his laptop for people to watch and before we knew it, we had collected a whole jar of business cards and filled-in enquiry forms.
CRM is an incredibly broad and important concept not only to us, but to any organisation that deals with customers.
The fact that we were one of the only CRM providers at the Tech Show North gave us a whopping advantage and we are delighted that we’re able to provide some of the attendees with a perfect CRM solution – who were equally delighted with our presence.
