Summer is here at last…
The humans in the office have had a busy few weeks. Apparently, they had a great show at ITT Hub! For those who are not familiar with the exhibition, ITT Hub is the annual meeting place for the commercial road transport sector, bringing together the latest innovation and technology for bus, coach, truck, van, last mile and autonomous vehicle fleets.
Our stand was exceptionally busy thanks to darts legend Bobby George and our friend and professional sports MC – Paul Booth. Visitors enjoyed the opportunity to throw a few darts with Mr Bling and listen to his stories about the world of darts and more recently, his appearances on a variety of TV shows! Paul kept the crowd entertained with his introductions, commentary and witty repartee. The team enjoyed the opportunity to catch up with some of our existing customers and to meet new people with an interest in what we do at Smart Graphics. There are some photos below from the exhibition. If you or any of your colleagues are in any of the photos and would like a copy, please contact us. I will get one of my humans to drop you an email with the photo attached… Photos are of course free of charge but happy to accept a Greggs sausage roll for my trouble!
As well as ITT Hub, we also exhibited at the ALBUM Conference in Blackpool. The event is specific to buses so it was great to see some of our customers and industry colleagues. With the emergence of more electric buses, it was refreshing to see of the latest models on display at ALBUM. As the electric market gains more traction, we anticipate a rise in demand for our range of environmentally friendly graphics.
The signage side of the business continues to grow with a number of exciting projects completed in the past few weeks including a large scale signage and graphics project at the headquarters of a major vehicle manufacturer.
Anyway, I have my new sunglasses ready for holidays… Bella (Chief Office Dog) and I are trying to decide where to go on holiday. Hound Tor (Dartmoor), Black Dog (Devon), Pawlett (Somersett) were all hot favourites but we finally decided to go to Woofferton (Shropshire)!
Have a great summer!
Ainsley and Ally forgot to tell the rest of the team that it was “matching jumper day”!
John and Ally enjoyed a trip to St Mary’s Loch in the Scottish Borders on their motorbikes – one of the first sunny days of summer (so far)…
St Mary’s Loch – stunning scenery.
