easyFairs Packaging Innovation 2010 – SHOW REPORT

Held on February 24th & 25th at Birmingham’s NEC; this was the first event of the year for Beaubury.  Being blow mould manufacturers and bottle designers, we weren’t entirely sure which service would keep us busiest; as it turned out we seemed to be pretty well placed on both sides as we were able to support our existing customers with their enquiries for tooling, as well as fresh, new enquiries for tooling and bottle concept design…

Our new exhibition back-drop which shows images of a project progressing from pencil sketch to supermarket shelf looked great and was relatively easy to assemble; which is just as well – given the limited setup time afforded by easyFairs.  Also on our stand we had a projector and screen, on which we had an animated photo slideshow.  This consisted of photos of previous design and tooling projects, our design studio and workshop, and a step-by-step photo-story of the path a typical project takes through our system – from project brief to complete blow mould industrialisation.

The doors opened at 10:00hrs on the Wednesday morning and the event was busy from the start; Paul, Mark and Steve manned the stand for the two-day event and where joined for a time on Thursday morning by Technical Director – Rob Beaumont and Toolroom Manager – John Cade.  Over the two days we gained many useful new contacts and enquiries, which over the coming months will hopefully develop into new design and tooling projects.

The next event on the Beaubury calendar is in autumn and is the London edition of easyFairs’ Packaging Innovation.  To be held in the Business Design Centre, Islington on October 7th & 8th – we look forward to seeing you there.

Finally, on behalf of Paul, Steve and myself, I would like to thank everyone who visited our stand – whether it was to pick up a brochure, say a quick hello, or to discuss a specific project – it meant a great deal to us that you took the time to visit – we look forward to seeing you again at the London event in October…if not before.
