You All Smashed It!
I don't know about you but we are all still buzzing on the back of two-day sales extravaganza that was the Sales Innovation expo! The event was amazingly successful and as we are already in prep mode for next year’s massive event (which I will tell you more about later), we want to use this opportunity to share our highlights of the event and thank each and every one of you who took the time out of their busy schedule to come along and take part in what was our most successful Sales Innovation expo to date!
This year we welcomed over 3,000 decision makers who were able to network with other like-minded attendees and exhibitors, while also uncovering new technology to support their daily sales roles and teams. In total, 35 Masterclasses and 95 informative seminars were held - with people flocking from all ends of the 100-acre convention centre to listen. By day two we were trending #1 on Twitter and in the three months leading up to the event records were smashed - with over 272k impressions and a huge 1,269 new followers.
With some of the best-known names, thought leaders and industry experts offering cutting-edge advice and demonstrating the latest technologies, products and services, our attendees were treated to a massive lineup of diverse keynote speakers which ranged from Nicola Hudson, COO for Microsoft UK, to David Beard, CRM Principal at Sage. Each told their amazing stories and delivered their knowledge-enhancing presentations to a large base of eager listeners.
The 2017 Sales Innovation Awards were also held on day two of the event and recognised the very best in sales technology and services talent. Judged by a tough panel of sales extraordinaire's, each category was a tough one to call. Check out our separate awards show blog for more about the categories and the well-deserved winners.
We closed the show with some great feedback from all who attended, such as…
OneUp Marketing Manager, Lisa Molly: "OneUp Sales had a great experience at the show. As a start-up, the expo gave us the opportunity to generate high quality leads from a wide variety of industries that we simply would not have reached elsewhere. It’s the place to be for any sales professional who wants to grow their business, be at the top of their game and at the forefront of sales innovation."
Success and Mindset Coach, Mandy Evill: “This was my first time at the Sales Innovation Expo, and I have to say it was great for us. We had so many great conversations with people and picked up over 50 qualified leads from the event. We were even talking to people who had come not for the Sales Expo but to the B2B marketing Expo which was next door! We have booked again for next year already and we are now busy following up on our leads from this year!”
Marketing Manager at Buffalo 7, James Robinson: "An hour into the first day of the exhibition and we had already achieved ROI in confirmed sales. And the pace didn't slow! A great event for both lead generation and networking. We've already booked our spot for next year."
All this great feedback and record breaking has left us excited for next year and feel it's finally time to announce some big news...
On the 21st & 22nd March 2018 at London’s ExCeL, we will be launching three new expos which will run alongside the Sales Innovation Expo, making this the biggest sales and marketing event in Europe! There will be 700 exhibitors, 200 masterclasses, 500 seminars and 15,000 professionals all under one London-based convention centre roof.
The Contact & Call Centre Expo is a conference that is designed to showcase the latest and most effective developments within the customer engagement world. You will sit in front of our world-class keynote speakers who will be sharing their knowledge and latest innovations within an auditorium that will be at the heart of this unmissable event.
If this wasn't enough, we will also be holding The Marketing Expo! Three marketing expos under one roof which will be broken down into three areas; B2B Marketing, B2C Marketing and MTEX Marketing Technology. All three will deliver all that senior marketers need to enhance and improve their knowledge and business ROI.
