Trade visitor attendance boomed says Alltrade at its 30th Anniversary 2019 Trade Show in October. With visitor numbers up year on year, the 2019 Trade Show was hailed as the most successful Alltrade event to date.
The show deals, new products, dynamic atmosphere, one-day format, VR racing experience and the best pies this side of Melton Mowbray (all supplied FOC to attendees) delivered an engaging experience.
Held at the Epsom Downs Racecourse with easy access to the M25, the Trade Show has become an essential diary date for custom installation and TV signal distribution professionals in the South of the Country. With industry leading exhibitors showing more than 50 brands in a single hall, special 30th Anniversary discounts and a choice of new products on show, the event continued its march from strength to strength.
“At 30 years young, Alltrade is in great shape and this year’s Trade Show figures demonstrate our continued growth,” comments Alltrade MD, Steve Simper. “Expanding our range with new brands, developing our regional Trade Counters and offering award-winning training and support continues to resonate with installers across the industries we supply. This year’s Trade Show highlighted those strengths with a record numbers of exhibitors, brands and visitors.”
The condensed expo space, one-day format, seminars and free food and refreshments, give the Alltrade Trade Show an appeal that spans CI, Aerial and Satellite, Home Automation and Security industries says the company.
“Features such as the stunning location, show deals and VR racing simulator certainly added to the draw this year. We are already planning an even more upscale and engaging event for 2020,” adds Steve.
Following on from last year’s show success, main event sponsor TRIAX showcased the launch of its Optical Fibre Range, TOF. Developed specifically for the UK market and based on the new Wideband technology used by Sky, the new TOF range enables the design and installation of medium to large Fibre Satellite TV distribution systems.
The system provides excellent MER across all transponders, providing a solution many of Alltrade’s customers have been demanding since the launch of the Sky Q platform.
The entire TRIAX TOF range will be available at Alltrade Trade Counters and Alltrade on-line from December 2019, with training seminars planned across regional Trade Counters this November.
Key brands including Sonos, Televes, Ubiquiti, Optimal Speaker Design (OSD), Hikvision, Webro, Blustream, ELAN, Whyte Technologies and Sanus supported the show, with many using the event to launch new products to the trade.
Steve rounds up, “My thanks go out to our supporting brands, without whom this event would not be possible. TRIAX, Antiference and Global Invacom have been with us for many years and we have worked together to broaden the product range, knowledge and opportunities for Alltrade’s trade customers. By delivering an extensive range of top-tier products, Trade Counter convenience, Award-Winning training, free delivery on our own fleet of vehicles and unrivalled back-up and support, we are very much looking forward to growth through the next 30 years.”
The Alltrade Trade Show will be returning to Epsom Downs Racecourse on Wednesday October 7, 2020.
