This year's exhibition was different - for the first time, business advice stands joined the product stands from vendors and Target in the same exhibition hall: Google, GfK, ACAS, The Pensions Regulator & Synergy all offered on-stand surgeries to attendees.
As usual, graphics card manufacturer, Club3D's 'Challenge a Pro-Gamer' stand proved a hit and, as usual, no-one beat Rouven despite many many challengers taking part. Other vendor highlights included Three's 'Internet With Legs' photobooth (a great photo opportunity - see the gallery on the Exhibitors tab), Akasa's fanless chassis range, the latest Skylake motherboards from ASRock and Biostar, and the latest gaming gear from Kingston's HyperX brand.
Our own stands had a big makeover this year too with more products on display than ever. And they weren't just IT components - remote controlled vehicles, gaming products and superhero LED lights were all big hits with attendees.
After last year's successful trial, a huge number of attendees took advantage of the exclusive, one-day offers available at the Open Day using the dedicated On-the-Day Ordering microsite.
For 2015 we put on a show. This year we did more than ever, presenting you with a wider range of IT products, better displayed. And we got you thinking about other products too – things it would make sense for an IT shop to sell. Media players, external storage, superhero wall lights, remote control vehicles, keyboards for smart-tvs, Wonder-Holders and so on… Take a look through the gallery and see what was on offer...
Our Open Day is, amongst other things, a Trade Show. So as well as the product offers we staged, the main hall had exhibition space dedicated to brands.
Favourites like Kingston, Microsoft, ASRock and Bitdefender were there to name a few. Take a look through the gallery and see what was on offer...
