Balance Accountants at Kirklees Business Conference 2011

Time was well spent last Thursday when we exhibited at the 3rd Kirklees Business Conference at The Galpharm Stadium, Leeds Road, Huddersfield. 

We were keen to make a good impression, not only for our own sake, but also because we were exhibiting alongside some of the best known and established businesses in Kirklees and didn’t want to let the side down.

As is often the case with busy businesses, time ran away from us and we left it a tad later than was sensible to start putting together a design for our stand.  This resulted in a flurry of meetings, phone calls and emails with our branding designers,  The Engine Room, who, given the time constraints, did us proud.  Boards were printed and delivered Wednesday afternoon, and we were ready for the action promptly on Thursday morning.

All set and ready to go

We were on stand 8 in the main hall, The Revell Ward Suite.  Manning the stand on the day were Verity (all day), Deb (me – till 2.45pm) and Ashley (from 1.00pm).  It was a great day with many interesting and interested people turning up at our stand.  I’m always amazed at exhibitions at the wide variety of businesses you come across and the range of new ideas that could spring from chatting with them. 

The event itself had an energising feel about it – apparently 700+ delegates attended, many of whom appeared to stay around for most of the day.  There were two rooms in which workshops and seminars were given, by high profile names within the local business community.  I heard nothing but praise for these and they certainly added to the buzz on the day.

It was the first time that Verity and Ashley had attended the stand at an exhibition and they were thrilled to see people’s reactions to the brand and the public face of Balance Accountants.  Our vibrant and modern design certainly causes a reaction and it makes the day fly by to hear the positive responses from so many people.  We do find that our look attracts the kind of people we want to work with.

Our goodies on display - our brochures, our Numbers folders and of course, our sweetie bags

If you came by our stand it would be great to hear any comments that you might have about our presence at Kirklees Business Conference, even if it is just to tell us how much you *cough* children *cough* loved the space dust, shrimps, flying saucers etc in the sweetie bag giveaways. 

If you missed us at KBC11 then maybe you’d like to visit us on Wednesday at the Brand Yorkshire Show at Elland Road. 

Bright and early Thursday morning and ready to present our wares
