Sheldon Smith and Adrian Tolley at the event
With more than 160 people registered for the second Northern Lights show, the opening day has already seen success, attracting people from outside the normal customer base and providing partners with many sales opportunities.
The Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds was host to real-live training and operator demonstrations as well as having staff on-hand to show how Duplo systems could save time and increase efficiencies.
Peter Jolly, Duplo UK Managing Director said, “people are coming here to buy, not just make up the numbers. I’m confident of finalising a number of deals over the two days of Northern Lights, which has had a fantastic response in terms of pre-show registrations. That’s also a reflection of a great ‘tea-making’ campaign leading up to the show in which we were determined to show our customers that by using our systems, they really could save time and increase productivity.”
Sheldon Smith who runs digital production operations for Prime Group and Adrian Tolley, Operations Director and Chairman of Duplo Owners’ Club were the chosen two on-hand for the customers.
Adrian added, “we’re always moaning about shows being centred on London, but it is great that Duplo has made a commitment to the north. And for those people attended from the north, they took advantage of such a location. Here’s hoping there will be many more Northern Lights to come.”
The show is open until 5pm today. Visitors can just turn up or register for free at www.duplonorthernlights.com
