2019 Exhibitor Feedback:
“Good morning Shirley, Well after all the planning and meetings, the plan came together!
Please convey our thanks to all your staff – to include security, the ladies manning the toilets, the cleaners etc., this was a very big effort from all to make this work and not once did we notice an unfriendly face – nothing got taken from our open stand, and with all equipment left in the evenings! – compliments to security and your management team.
So how was the show for us? … WORTH THE EFFORT!! We worked very hard on every person that entered our stand and this paid off – not only did we add new clients to our database but also got new 4 BOOKINGS for one of our safaris! Lots of networking was done and some very good quality meetings were set up to take place in next week or two – we are sure this will turn into good safaris for us! We also enjoyed quality time with all our old clients who popped in to say hi…
Our new ATV safari product was tested with very positive feedback. Yes the numbers were affected by the rugby and yes, we would have liked more feet on our stand but we are a boutique safari company and do not work with big numbers, this meant that we were able to give extra time to every client visiting our stand.
Let us turn this positive! We believe what you put in you with get out and this includes a personalized and not “plastic” stand! The new clients we met will be well looked after…”
2019 Visitor Feedback:
“I would like to extend my thanks to everyone that played a part in making The Outdoor Eco Expo such a fantastic experience. I thoroughly enjoyed every second I spent at St Stithians College in Bryanston, the variety of food and drinks was amazing, the amount of different exhibitors that attended the Expo as well as the atmosphere that was created by each and every person that attended. Upon walking into the festival the first exhibitor that caught my eye was the E-Bike stand and the “bmx track” right next to it. Being able to experience the E-Bike for the first time was just amazing as I normally take a mountain bike out. This bicycle makes it easier for any person who wishes to ride up a hill with ease. Trust me when I say this, The Outdoor Eco Expo is well worth it.”
