Another Successful Executive Hire Show for inspHire
Feb 23, 2018
Running from 7th - 8th February at the Ricoh Arena, this year’s event marked the 12th annual return for the Executive Hire Show. It was 93% Sold out, with 195 exhibitors and 2489 visitors in attendance, making it one of the most successful shows to date.
Here at inspHire, we’re consistently evolving our software to be most beneficial for our customers, so Executive Hire Show sought to be the perfect place to unveil the variety of major developments we’d made since exhibiting last year. Our brand-new exhibition stand made its debut appearance, giving us a total of 4 demo stations to display our market leading software.
As the show floor became increasingly busy, visitors took a significant interest in our New Asset Tracker Functionality and seamless telematics integration with Trackunit, CanTrack and JCB LiveLink. We demonstrated how the Asset Tracker utilises in-built Google Maps to visualise the current location and status of equipment. This paired with the telematics integration allows for live GPS tracking, meter readings, hours of operation and key equipment inputs.
Exhibiting at the show gives us the invaluable chance to catch up with existing customers and this year over 30 of them came by to our stand which we were delighted to see. Those that stopped by, both customers and prospects alike, had the opportunity to enter our exciting Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 giveaway, with this year’s lucky winner being Carl from GEM Tool Hire. We also had an enticing Show Only Offer on display which On Location Hire used when they purchased their new inspHire Office System!
Each year, Executive Hire Show presents ‘The Hirer Awards’ which commends businesses for their exceptional work within the industry. Congratulations to Lord Hire Centres who claimed the ‘Outstanding Multi Depot Hire Company’ award and Clem Jacob who won ‘Outstanding Single Hire Depot’ category. There was certainly no shortage of awards as the Innovation Trail soon followed.
Due to the variety of products on offer which were all aimed at different markets, no clear winner could be distinguished. Instead, all Innovation Trail participants were given a commemorative award to celebrate their achievement.
Year after year Executive Hire Show continues to represent everything great about the hire industry. We thoroughly enjoyed exhibiting and can’t wait to return next year!
