Last week saw our now regular outing to the eWorld Purchasing & Supply event in London.
The team in front of our booth
My day at eWorld began with a train journey to London Waterloo and a pleasant walk across Westminster Bridge, past Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, to the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre. When I arrived, the venue was a hive of activity as exhibitors unpacked their equipment and prepared for the day ahead. I found my colleagues in our familiar location, at the foot of the stairs to the seminar room. They had already done most of the setup of our stand and I was just able to help add a few final touches. Very soon it was time to greet the first delegates of the day.
The day flew past as we spoke to delegates about Market Dojo, and also got some interesting new ideas based on their priorities and suggestions.
For me, what was particularly striking about this eWorld was how many Market Dojo customers were present. A really nice reminder of how we are growing. It was a great chance to put a face to a few familiar names and also discuss how they were getting on. It was also really exciting to see the positive reaction we got for the new things which we have been working on.
Before I knew it, the highly efficient catering team were circulating with drinks indicating that the event was almost over. Of course, we squeezed every last minute out of our day, even doing a demonstration as the event staff began dismantled the booths around us.
After a quick review, it was time to say goodbye to my colleagues, and head back to Waterloo.
Many thanks to Claire Boffey and her team at Revolution for organising a great event. Thanks also to everyone who took the time to stop and talk to us at eWorld.
