First stop was the NEC in Birmingham for Railtex 2015, the UK’s leading exhibition for the latest rail industry products, systems and services. The SOUNDEX® acoustic barrier solutions already enjoy a strong track record in the rail industry and have been used in several major projects across the rail and underground networks. With many major players and decision makers in the rail sector, both in the UK and importantly internationally, together under one roof at the NEC, Railtex proved to be an excellent opportunity for SOUNDEX® to meet, network, learn and do business.
Next stop for the team was the impressive PLANTWORX trade show in Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire in June. PLANTWORX is the largest live action construction show in the UK and brings together the UK’s very best in construction plant, equipment and services. For SOUNDEX®, this was a great opportunity to showcase and demonstrate how our complete range of noise solution products can be tailored and utilised in all types of construction projects. As well as touching base with many existing construction industry clients, we created a number of new business leads that will help to consolidate SOUNDEX® reputation as a leading supplier of acoustic solutions for the construction industry.
“Having a presence at high profile trade shows such as Railtex and PLANTWORX has a major impact on our business growth,” explains Caleb Taylor, Global Sales & Marketing Manager. “Even in an era of digital communication and social media networking, there’s no substitute for making regular face-to-face contact with the decision makers in both the construction and rail industry. Building meaningful business relationships and demonstrating firsthand how our SOUNDEX® products can be adapted to meet the specific project requirements are the life-blood of growing our business and make trade shows a key fixture in our marketing calendar.”
